- Stacie Clayton leading us in song.
- Christopher Child’s engaging presentation on DNA.
- Beverly Morgan-Welch’s overview and highlights of the National Museum of African American History and Culture.
- Interacting with Shirley Carter, the re-enactor of Liza Rich, a laundress from Worcester, and with Charles Price, the Lexington Minuteman re-enactor of Prince Estabrook.
- Sharing a delicious buffet with family, friends, fellow genealogists and historians.
- Visiting exhibitors who shared cultural wares, books, and historical /genealogical information.
- Remembering those who have joined the ancestral chapter.
- Honoring AAHGS-NE FOUNDERS and SUSTAINERS.
