Rowley news in brief

Fairy Fest and Pirate Party July 26

The Rowley Historical Society is inviting children for a fun-filled adventure into the world of fairies and pirates. Come dressed for the occasion and enjoy hunting for treasure, creating new homes for the Rowley fairies, taking professional photos and just having fun. On Friday, July 26, from 2:30-4 p.m., there will be a Fairy Fest and Pirate Party for the children of or related to the town of Rowley. This is to be held at the 1677 Platts-Bradstreet House, 233 Main St. An admission fee of $5 to cover expenses will be collected at the door. There is a limit of 20 children, so sign up ASAP by calling: 978-948-5054 or e-mailing: dmcmahon9@verizon.net or susan.g.hazen@gmail.com.

Volunteer needed for Meals on Wheels

The town’s Meals on Wheels program is in need of a volunteer driver for Friday morning deliveries. The driver will spend about three hours delivering 18 to 20 meals to housebound seniors. A stipend is given for gas. Volunteers can work every other week, but must have a car and a valid license. CORI checks are required.

Call the Rowley Council on Aging at 978-948-7637 and ask for Mary Mighill.

Call out for ‘Recipes & Remembrances’

The Rowley Historical Society’s new cookbook, “Recipes & Remembrances,” is well under way. The group is still accepting recipes from Rowley residents and their families. Organizers of the cookbook project are particularly interested in family recipes that have been handed down through the generations. They are also seeking recipes from families who have lived in town, brought up their children here and now have grandchildren here. In general, they are encouraging all residents to participate. Anyone who has a recipe and an anecdote or remembrance regarding that recipe should drop off their entries at Town Clerk Sue Hazen’s office in Rowley Town Hall or mail them under the title “recipe” to the Rowley Historical Society, 124 Main St., Rowley. Submissions may also be e-mailed to dmcmahon9@verizon.net.
