(Editor's note: The following information was submitted by the Tewksbury Historical Society.)
The Tewksbury Historical Society is planning to celebrate the 278th Charter Day of Tewksbury on December 1st at 7:00pm in the Wynn School Middle School auditorium. The birth of the town of Tewksbury was undoubtedly celebrated back on Dec. 23, 1734 by our founding fathers Samuel Hunt and Daniel Kittredge. When they arrived home from Boston with the Town Charter signed by Governor John Belcher, was there any dancing in the streets? The Tewksbury Historical Society says yes there were! We were no longer East Billerica. We could and still do call ourselves the town of Tewksbury!
The Society will be for the fourth year in a row, celebrating the town's birthday with an entertaining evening of singing, dancing, acting, story telling, comedy, or the playing of musical instruments. The winners of the Tewksbury Has Talent Show held on Nov. 20 will be showcased in a delightful evening to celebrate our town's 278th birthday. The Society will hand out free birthday cake at intermission for as long as it lasts. The "Tewksbury Charter Day Celebration Show" will be held at 7:00pm, December 1, 2012, at the Wynn School Auditorium. Tickets for this event are $8.00 for Premium Seats and $6.00 for General Seating. Tickets may be purchased at the tryouts on Nov. 20th or the Local History Room (Tewksbury Library) on Tuesdays from 3:30-5:30pm or by reservation or information by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope the most of the performers will be able to participate in a final event. The tryouts have become so popular, this year a few of the tryouts will be pared down so the show is not too long. Reserved tickets may be paid for and picked up at the "WILL CALL" table in the lobby of the Wynn Middle School. Remaining tickets will be sold in the lobby.
