NEWBURYPORT NEWS IN BRIEF
PUBLISHED NOTICE ABOVE IS BASED UPON THE FOLLOWING PRESS RELEASE:
A believer in reincarnation, Newburyport's eccentric 18th century merchant adventurer Lord Timothy Dexter predicted that from time to time he "may come back toue see houe you all goue on." Embodied by Newburyport native and Amesbury High School history teacher Paul Jancewicz, Dexter is good form to pursue new adventures. So, check your compass and mark your calendars, because the next community experience is planned for the last weekend of this month.
On Saturday, October 30th, Lord Timothy Dexter will bring history to life to mark the 215th anniversary of George Washington's visit to Newburyport on that date in 1789. Join Lord Tim in the Newburyport Public Library Children's Room at 3 p.m. in anticipation of the First President's arrival at 3:33 p.m. The first "figger" from Dexter's famous "mouseum of grate caricters" --- "Jorge Washington the grate herow" will be portrayed by George Moore of Newton, New Hampshire, a retired minister highly recognized for his interpretation of "George Washington Himself." After the "meet and greet" reception at the library --- the central place where history comes to life --- the entourage will make way down State to Middle Streets to the Old South Church on Federal Street, to the Meetinghouse where Washington addressed an ecumenical session in the early evening.
Dexter will remain on this side of the veil to celebrate All Hallows
Eve and new beginnings in a Motion of Comity. He plans to join the community
at the Annual Harold Harnch Halloween procession and party, commencing
at Atkinson Common on Sunday afternoon, October 31st at 2PM. More information
can be found at www.LordTimothyDexter.com
(Awaken the Spirit) and www.Comity.org
and at the Virtual Wolfe Tavern established on the Newburyport Community
website at www.Newburyport01950.com.
