 In this program, we will peer into our archives to discuss the legacy of the Basket Club and how Cantabrigians created handmade donations in times of crisis. We will also be joined by Deputy Superintendent Pauline Wells of the Cambridge Police Department who will discuss the City’s mask drive and its effect on both the makers and recipients. We hope you will join us for a thoughtful and informative discussion of the role that handmade donations can make in the mending of a community during challenging times.
Zoom information will be provided upon registration.
