Spooky event on tap at Brimfield COA

October 19, 2011
BRIMFIELD — With Halloween just over a week away, the Brimfield Council on Aging has an intriguing and somewhat spooky presentation scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 20, at 11:30 a.m. at the senior center.

Joan Demers, who has been doing genealogical research for a Brimfield resident, will tell the story of mysterious letters written in 1874 that were found in the walls of the individual's home. The story also includes alias names and missing birth certificates, and residents are invited to attend Demers' presentation to learn what other items might be hidden in the house. Some residents might even unknowingly hold the key to the mystery.

"It is possible that residents might have information that could solve this strange story without even knowing it," said Heather Dickinson, the program coordinator for the BCOA. "This is going to be a fascinating presentation."

Demers will also lead guests through a brief lesson in genealogy, the study a person's ancestors and the tracing of his or her lineage.
