Annual Meeting: Wednesday, December 5th
The Annual Meeting of the Georgetown Historical Society will be held at the Georgetown Peabody Library on Wednesday, December 5th at 7:00 p.m. Our special guest speaker this year will be Dr. Michael Cross, who will give a presentation on "Snake Oil: Can you tell fact from fiction?" The late 19th and early 20th century is considered the "Golden Age of Quackery," a time when snake oil salesmen sold patent medicines to an unsuspecting public. This lecture presents many of the scientific and medical "quack" tonics and devices so prevalent during this time period as well as their modern counterparts. Michael Cross is an Associate Professor of chemistry at Northern Essex Community College. All are welcome to attend this meeting. Gift shop items will be available for sale, and light refreshments will be served.
Watch your mailboxes. Annual Meeting notices and ballots will be mailed
out in November.
