Presented by Stacen Goldman
In the early fall of 2017, while developing the upcoming World War I exhibition, Framingham History Center Curator Stacen Goldman discovered the unfinished, unpublished manuscript of Gordon Ware, a Framingham resident and volunteer ambulance driver during the Great War. Both funny and poignant, Ware’s writing offers insight into service on World War I’s “Forgotten Front” in the Balkans—a place where virtually no American service men set foot. Join Stacen as she discusses finding Ware’s manuscript in the FHC Collections, the impact it had on developing the World War I exhibition, and Gordon’s story itself. Her talk will be presented alongside exclusive photographs and readings from this unfinished work of Framingham’s own “Lost Generation” voice.
Tickets are $5/FHC member and $10/non-member. Purchase tickets at framinghamhistory.org or mail checks to FHC P.O. Box 2032, Framingham, MA 01703. Questions? Call 508-626-9091.

Put A LID On It: Managing Your Community’s Stormwater In A Changing Climate
Building a more sustainable future starts with making choices in your own backyard. Low Impact Development (LID) is a design approach that maximizes benefits of natural systems, such as flood storage, in areas of a community that are vulnerable to flooding or water quality impairments. Explore examples of LID in Framingham and learn how to adapt to storm-water management challenges from folks who have led their community through this non-traditional development process.
