You are cordially invited to the 113th Alden Kindred Annual Meeting and Family Reunion

Saturday, August 4, 2012

 
To family and friends! Join us at the Alden Homestead for our annual meeting and reunion. Following our business meeting and luncheon, we will have a presentation by Paula Marcoux, an expert in early cooking technologies, food and oven building.

At first glance today, it may be hard to imagine the Alden property as it stood for most of its existence, but it was once a large rural farm. Ms. Marcoux’s talk will provide a discussion of colonial cooking methods and techniques.

Throughout the day, there will be interesting items to bid on in our Silent Auction and chances to take on the Leaves of New England hooked rug raffle. Meet and mingle with cousins and enjoy a day at “Grandma and Grandpa” Alden’s old house!

New Coastal Garden
at the Alden House

The Alden House is proud to display its new coastal garden that was created with the help of the Duxbury Community Garden Club and Troup 62 of the Duxbury Boy Scouts. Located in front of the Kitchen “El,” this garden project has improved the look of the house, while highlighting some flora used during the nineteenth century.

This garden will be phase one in a multiple phase program aimed at improving the grounds of the Alden House. The Kindred will continue to collaborate with the Garden Club on new improvements to the property over the next few years. While you are enjoying the reunion be sure to take a walk around and enjoy the new garden!
