This sounds like a great place to do some digging around, wish I could make
it up there but since moving to the Keys I find it harder to get any where
- in part it has to do with the whole day of travel just to get there.
Sounds like a great place for those who often spend extra days during the
reunion to check out on their own. Still hopefull that I will be able to
make it but with so much else going on it would be hard to do.

Hi Cliff,I'm sorry that your invite was not recognized by us
too!! I have
been to the Quadrangle and enjoyed touring the museums and taking pictures
of the Dr. Seuss characters in the courtyard. We visited the museums after
we attended the Big E one year. It was a great time. Your alternate to
the Big E is a GREAT suggestion and I would recommend that anyone who is
not terribly excited about the BIG E, this would be a wonderful
alternative. Maybe you could tell us a bit more about what to expect at
your facility. Thanks for working to make this a truly memorable reunion!!
I was disappointed to see that my invitation, sent nearly a month ago,
was not included in the Reunion information. See below.
We have a terrific genealogical research facility in the new Wood Museum
of Springfield History that I would hate for our members to miss the
opportunity to check it out. The perfect time would be on the afternoon of
Day One for those who don't want to go to the Big E.
Let me know if I can help get the word out.

Hi, Sackett-folks.I am a new member and Sackett descendant, looking
forward to the reunion in September, but I also am the archivist at the
Lyman & Merrie Wood Museum of Springfield History -- part of the complex of
museums at the Quadrangle in Springfield, Mass. I just wanted to invite
your members to think about visiting our place prior to the reunion. We
have the best genealogical and local history collection in western Mass.
and we are just a short drive from Westfield. We have lots of Sackett
history going back to the early days of Springfield. We're open Tuesdays
thru Fridays, 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.Also, I'd be happy to assist members with
their research questions, if they want to drop me an email
at:firstname.lastname@example.orgThanks, and I look forward to meeting
some of you in Westfield.Cliff McCarthy
