GREENLAND —Learn about the Shaker Legacy on Tues., June 17 at 6:30 p.m. at the Weeks Public Library in Greenland. In their more than two and a half centuries of existence, members of the United Society of Believers in Christ’s Second Appearing, commonly known as Shakers, made ingenious contributions to diverse fields: agriculture, industry, medicine, music, furniture design, women’s rights, racial equality, craftsmanship, social and religious thought, and mechanical invention and improvement. Darryl Thompson explores some of these contributions in his lecture and shares some of his personal memories of the Canterbury Shakers.
