300th Anniversary of Brookfield Churches
The months of August and September will see a continuation of the 300th Anniversary celebration of the Brookfield Churches that trace their beginning to the meeting house that was built on Foster Hill in West Brookfield in 1717. Church celebrations will take place on August 19, September 17, and October 14.
August 19, 2017 will feature a dramatized presentation by the First Congregational Church of West Brookfield of the events surrounding the Church's 1851 expulsion of Lucy Stone, who later went on to become a leading figure in the women's rights movement. Now, in a period when times and attitudes have changed, the Church will seek a reconciliation with her spirit. The event will start at 10:30 A.M. at the bandstand on West Brookfield Common, to be followed by further events and lunch in the Church.
