Stetson Kindred Reunion and Annual Meeting of the Membership

 

The Homestead, 83 Stetson Shrine Lane, Norwell, MA

     Every third Sunday in August since 1905, Kindred members from around the country answer “The Call”, gathering at The Homestead along the shores of the North River where Robert Stetson settled nearly 400 years ago. Members and guests enjoy a weekend of activities that celebrate our common, cousinly heritage.

The weekend program starts on Saturday with an afternoon outing followed by a catered “Meet and Greet” dinner and speaker program.  Sunday morning we all gather at the Pavilion for coffee and light refreshments, with activities planned for the children. Around 11 a.m., there is a group photo before sitting down to some New England clam chowder and a catered Lobster/Corn/Clam luncheon. (Meal options available for our landlubbers).  The annual membership meeting usually starts around 1:00-1:30 p.m.

Each year we have some interesting and exciting programs!
