The Historical Committee is delighted to announce FRS’ own contribution to the wider community’s new enthusiasm for coloring books. With the help of fourteen local artists, “Today and Yesterday...A Newburyport Coloring Book” contains twenty-four drawings, from old-time Joppa clam shacks to the gardens at Maudslay State Park. Each full-page drawing is accompanied by historical background text. “A Newburyport Coloring Book” was introduced at Yankee Homecoming, and sales exceeded even our ever-buoyant expectations. Many thanks to super-salespeople Randy Ross, Paula Renda, Marise Fraser, Ruth Rankin, Lin Faye, and Sally Foskett. Look for your copy ($10, proceeds to the Steeple Restoration Project) at an upcoming coffee hour.
