Member Program: Noank Historical Society recently received the digitized copy of a 16mm film shot in Noank and Groton Long Point, by Howard S. Dodd, in the late 1930s. This exceptional film provides a rare window to Noank's bustling shoreline community, with glimpses of lobstermen, pleasure craft and even the Noank Fire Department all in action—followed by the immediate aftermath of the 1938 hurricane. NHS will screen this film, along with excerpts of John Jenssen's home movies shot in Noank, just a few years later. A potluck supper and brief annual meeting start at 6:00 pm. For details see the June, 2018 Noank Ledger, or email for information: noankhist @ sbcglobal.net.
Admission is free. All are welcome!
