Big plans in little Marblehead

The historic village of Marblehead is bringing back “Olde Fashioned Days” on Saturday, June 16 — a villagewide celebration of Marblehead’s old world heritage sponsored by local merchants.
Activities starting at 10 a.m. are along Main Street and include a vintage-antique car show and an Olde Fashioned Street Fair hosted by the village's unique shops. Top-notch guest artists and crafters will be demonstrating and selling their creations in front of many of the shops.
The “Recycled” Barbershop Quartet, with more than 50 years of combined experience, will perform from 12:30 to 6 p.m. in various locations along Main Street, starting at the Village Clipper barbershop. Also performing will be an orchestra comprised of faculty and students from the Terra College of Music playing hits of the ’20s through the ’40s.
Local restaurants, ranging from Cuban cooking to down-home meals, will be providing specials and other vendors will offer festival foods along Main Street.

Local author on hand for book signing

Marblehead resident Nelda “Nel” Adcock will hold a book signing for her recently published children’s book, “My Firelands Adventure,” from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, June 9, at the Wolcott Keeper’s House, 9999 Bayshore Road, Marblehead.
Adcock was inspired to write the book while volunteering at the Keeper’s House annex and gift shop, and enjoying the aroma of apple scones being prepared next door on the Keeper’s House fireplace by fellow docent Ray Machar. She wove the idea of the tempting aroma into a story about Selima Wolcott, Benajah Wolcott’s younger daughter, and a young Indian boy. Selima, who was unhappy about leaving her home and friends in Connecticut to go to the wild Firelands frontier, meets the young boy and shares an adventure. She learns a few things along the way, as will Nel’s young readers — the retired teacher admits hiding many interesting facts in the story.
