Exotic Turneffe Atoll, Belize

Escape to the exotic nature of this remote tropical island chain off the coast of Belize. Beyond the second largest barrier reef in the world lies Turneffe Atoll. Away from the cruise ships of the main-land soar magnificent frigate birds and blue and red footed boobies. Winter migrants, including warblers and hummingbirds, can also be seen on these remote is-lands. Some of the locals, such as the golden fronted woodpecker and spiny iguana, can even be seen competing for space on the same tree! From above the water, dolphins can be seen frolicking in the waves while manatees slowly cruise along feeding on sea grasses.

Don’t Go Down to the Sea! 

Ann Barrett presents, “Don’t Go Down to the Sea” on Thursday, August 27, 12:30 PM

Clairvoyant Moll Pitcher’s predictions of an ill-fated voyage were so powerful that they could render a ship crew less if word got out.  This 17th century sybil is said to have made predictions that came to pass long after her death, and she numbered among her clients such notables as the wealthy and eccentric Lord Timothy Dexter.

For more than ten years Anne Barrett has been entertaining and educating audiences with her lectures and performances at dozens of libraries, historical societies, museums and other social and civic groups throughout New England. She is Vice President of the Topsfield Historical Society, editor of its newsletter Local Lore, and was a history columnist in Community Newspaper’s Tri Town Transcript. She is a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. She has held leading roles in community theater plays and musicals. This presentation will amaze and surprise you!  To register, please email Sharon Wilkes at wilkess@sudbury.ma.us by August 25, 2020.   A Zoom link and password will be sent to you the day before the class.  Sponsored by the Friends of Sudbury Senior Citizens, Inc.
