 As usual, the Reunion took place at the Grange Hall next door to the Benjamin Nye Homestead & Museum, 91 Old County Road, East Sandwich, MA. The hall was  opened at 9 AM for checking in and fellowship, with coffee and doughnuts available.
The business meeting began at 10. During the meeting members had an opportunity to share greetings, comments, and ask questions.
At the conclusion of the meeting we assembled in front of the Homestead & Museum for a group photo.

AFTER THE MEETING - The hour or so between the group photo and 1 PM lunch was an opportunity for attendees to socialize, visit the Homestead and Museum, walk the beautiful grounds, including The Neck, across from the Homestead.

LUNCH - This year we returned to an old favorite: a New England clambake, prepared for us by the Osterville Fish Company in the Grange Hall. Three choices were available: Lobster, steak or chicken, served with clam chowder, mussels, steamers, corn, potatoes, linguicia, coleslaw, dinner rolls and watermelon.

EVENING PROGRAM - We returned to the Grange Hall at 7 PM for more fellowship, refreshments. At 7:30 Executive Director and historian John Nye Cullity presented a slideshow and talk entitled “Cedarville Revisited”. This presentation showed how the Nye Homestead and watermills became the nucleus of a small but bustling settlement, which became known as Cedarville. Threaded throughout the talk there were readings from “Our Village, or, Old Times and New” , a wonderful poem about the neighborhood written in 1857 by Joseph B. Hall, who grew up in the Hall Tavern a stone’s throw from our Homestead & Museum.
