For the fourth year in a row, the South Shore Locavores will be making apple pies — a whole lot of them! The pies will be donated, frozen and unbaked, to families served by the Greater Plymouth Food Warehouse, complete with baking instructions and nutritional labels. In 2016 the group made and donated 91 pies! The group is hoping to exceed that goal for 2017.
On Thursday November 9th from 7 to 9 pm, Kathleen Wall, Colonial Foodways Culinarian at Plimoth Plantation, and other expert pie-makers will be on hand to organize the effort and provide guidance. Walk-ins are welcome, but to make this the best event it can be, participants are encouraged to fill out this preregistration survey so we can make the best use of everybody’s time and skills. Wear your favorite apron and bring rolling pins, peelers, paring knives, cookie cutters with fall shapes – be sure to label them with your name so they go back home with you! Bring the young bakers in your family, for ages 10 and up — it’s great experience.
We are grateful to Trucchi’s Supermarkets for underwriting some of the costs of this program. If you would like to make a donation or have questions about this program, please call or email Library Director Sia Stewart at firstname.lastname@example.org, 781-585-0517 x6286.
With over forty years of experience as a sought after diagnostician, Dr. Stuart Mushlin has cracked his share of medical mysteries, ones in which there are bigger gambles than playing the ponies at the track. Some of his patients show up with puzzling symptoms, calling for savvy medical detective work. Others seem to present cut-and-dry cases, but they turn out to be suffering from rare or serious conditions.
Stuart Mushlin is the Master Clinician in Internal Medicine and Primary Care at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School.

What is a little free library?
A Little Free Library is a “take a book, return a book” free book exchange. They come in many shapes and sizes, but the most common version is a small wooden box of books. Anyone may take a book or bring a book to share. Little Free Library book exchanges have a unique, personal touch. There is an understanding that real people are sharing their favorite books with their community.
Where are the little free libraries located?
The little free libraries will be located in five different locations around Kingston: Town Hall, Gray’s Beach, The Ah-De-Han, Rocky Nook Brewster Park, The Reed Community Building, and Sampson Park
How can I donate books?
Once the little free libraries are up and running, simply find one near you and place your donations inside!
When will the little free libraries be up and running?
All six little free libraries have been adopted! Kingston families and organizations are in the process of decorating their libraries and getting them ready for installation. Keep your eyes open and your books ready for their debut this Spring!
