Our Events


It is with regret that we must announce the cancellation of our “in person” Annual Meeting at the Hope Church.   Because of the Covid-19 virus, for the safety of our members and guests, it will instead be held on ZOOM.  


The meeting will be free, but you must pre-register to attend.  Once you have registered, you will be sent instructions on how to join the meeting on your computer or smart phone.

    To pre-register, you have two options.   You may:

    1)   send in the Registration form that was included with the latest Descend-O-Gram or

   2)   send an email to Ed Gerrish at


The meeting will include the society business meeting and we are happy to announce that Newburyport Historian Ghlee Woodworth will also be giving a presentation on ZOOM.   Exact topic is unknown, but I am sure you will find it to be very interesting!


Because of the Covid-19 virus, and our concerns for everyone’s health, we have decided to postpone our Annual Yard Sale until next Spring.   On the bright side, you now have the winter months to clean out all your unwanted (in good condition & clean, please) items to donate to the sale!


 The future date will be posted once it is decided.   Thank you for your understanding.


The date of the next open house will be announced as soon as it is available. 


For 92 years, the Sons and Daughters of the First Settlers of Newbury have been gathering for their Annual Meeting. This year, it was held on August 10 at the Hope Church in Newburyport. Registration and a continental breakfast began at 8:30 a.m. Folks really look forward to this time as an opportunity to meet and talk with their Newbury cousins.  Click here for meeting report and survey information.
