In town this Sunday

This is super short notice, but I'll be in Boston this Sunday, and I am
planning to come by to visit during service ringing at Advent (five
years of PhDing on the west coast has completely atrophied my tower
ringing skills, but I'd still like to see you all!)  Won't be around for
the 4th, alas.


P.S. I graduated two weeks ago, and moved to NY, and haven't had time to
visit Trinity, but it is on my to-do list.

Excerpts from Laura Dickerson's message of 2017-06-30 07:30:52 -0400:
>      Saturday July 1st - regular Old North practice, including 
> visitors.  My goal for the day is good striking (listening and handling 
> exercises, lots of attention to rounds).  Possibly firing practice.  
> Methods as requested and possible (think about Stedman in particular).
>      Sunday the 2nd - regular service ringing  at both towers, with an 
> informational talk in the garden during the Old North ringing.
>      In addition to the general Boston-area Harborfest events, Old North 
> is having a family Colonial fun festival on the weekend afternoons. 
> Expect even more tourists than usual.

>      Tuesday the 4th Noon - 1PM at Old North, sort of like service 
> ringing but anyone who can at least ring rounds is encouraged to attend. 
>    Likelihood of decorative snacks.
>      7 PM  picnic in the garden/Moseley Hall at the Advent. We have 
> gluten-free and dairy-free needs among the attendees. Possibly the best 
> thing would be to bring your favorite potluck picnic food but make sure 
> you can list all the ingredients so that people can be safe. Feel free 
> to bring family and friends.
> I still have not heard back about the timing of the 1812 Overture (and 
> therefore the ringing).  Sometime between 8:30 and about 10:15 PM, I 
> guess. I will update when/if I learn more.
