Trails and Sails Event

I have been remiss in mentioning the local activities going on hosted by the Essex National Heritage Area.     

First, my link was messed up so I have fixed it.

Second, the Essex National Heritage Commission smartened up and now has activities spread over two weekends.    Playing dodge ball with the weather is a necessary sport here in New England.      This way, everyone will have a chance to go to some of the great events.    

The best part is that every location can not charge admission or a fee so it is all FREE!     That makes any poor preservationist sing for joy. (Donations of course are always appreciated.)
