MANY ATTENDED ANNUAL MEETING
On Tuesday, June 8, via Zoom, many members attended the ALP Annual meeting. New By-Laws were passed, a budget was passed, a new slate of officers was elected and we celebrated the accomplishments of the past year. ALP presented over 100 classes using Zoom technology and they were attended by many of our ALP members.
At the close of our meeting, members were entertained by our guest speaker Walter Woodward, Connecticut State Historian. In his talk, “Events That Shaped our Lives,” he helped us understand how people and events in Connecticut’s past played crucial roles in forming the culture and character of Connecticut today. A gifted story-teller, he brought to life in new ways the history we thought we knew from the nearly forgotten early presence of the Dutch, to the time when Connecticut was New England’s fiercest prosecutor of witches, the decades when Nutmeggers were rapidly leaving the state, and the years when Irish immigrants were hurrying into it. Whether it’s his investigation into the unusually rough justice meted out to Revolutionary War hero Nathan Hale, or a peek into Mark Twain’s smoking habits, Prof. Woodward left us thinking about our state’s past––and its future––in a whole new way.
His new book, Creating Connecticut, is available at email@example.com
