Our meeting in October will be a field trip to the Berkshire County Historical Society in Pittsfield, MA. The visit will include a tour of Arrowhead, which was the home of Herman Melville from 1850 to 1863 and is where he wrote the novel "Moby Dick".

The museum is also home to an extensive lace collection. We will have a tour starting promptly at 10:30am followed by a lecture from the curator and the chance to view the laces they have.

The cost is $7 for members (subsidized $10 by NELG) and $17 for non-members/guests. Please register and pay no later than Tuesday, October 12 if you plan to attend.

We should conclude no later than 12:45pm. Lunch is on your own, but the museum has recommended we consider a restaurant in Lenox, MA called "On a Roll" where reservations are accepted.

Questions should be directed to NELG Member at Large, Jill Hawkins, at
