Saturdays and Sundays

Did you ever wonder how people communicated without the aid of “smart” devices and “social media?” Join us this fall and discover the many ways people in the past communicated with each other.  Discover the joy of face-to-face communication. Lean over the garden fence and talk to your neighbor. Knock on the door and borrow a cup of sugar.  Read some letters written in Deerfield long ago. Write a letter!  Try writing with a quill pen, a fountain pen and a ball point pen. Use our manual and electric typewriters; take your typing with you and mail it to a friend. Slow down and enjoy communicating in the old fashioned way.
