Introducing: Woods Hole Family Boat Building! This summer, a new boat-building program for children and their parents will be offered at the Woods Hole Historical Museum. Each child-parent pair will produce a ten-foot Frugal Skiff in just three fun and informative half-days. Best of all, families who choose to pay for materials will be able to leave the class with their very own boat. The class starts July 28. Click here for more info.
Conversations: Tom Renshaw, long-time resident and leader of the Woods Hole Community Association, will speak on Tuesday, July 29 at 7:30 p.m. at the Community Hall about the past and the evolution of parts of the village. The catalyst for his comments is an aerial photograph taken one morning in April 1950. He will zoom in on various parts of the high resolution photograph, explaining what the audience is seeing, and how it has changed through time. Free!
