MILLIS READS PROGRAM presents DARK TIDE
A North End Walking Tour with Stephen Puleo
Saturday June 13th 9AM-3PM
Enjoy a North End Tour with Stephen Puleo, author of Dark Tide: The Great Boston Molasses Flood of 1919.
A school bus will leave the Millis Public Library parking lot promptly at 9AM and return at 3PM. Mr. Puleo will meet us at 10:30AM in front of L’Osteria Restaurant, 104 Salem Street.
The walking tour is approximately 1.5 hours long which leaves “On Your Own” time for patrons to explore the North End or grab an Italian meal!
Mr. Puleo has suggested a minimum donation of $30 per person to be made out to JDRF- Megan’s Marchers for the tour. JDRF stands for Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund. This is Mr. Puleo’s family team fundraiser named for his niece who has Juvenile Diabetes.
Preregistration with donation check is required please. You can sign up at the Millis Public Library through Alex Lent, Library Director. There is a limit so this is on a first come, first serve basis. Preference given to Millis residents.
Thanks go out to the Friends of the Millis Public Library for sponsoring the bus for this trip!
