Celebrating Freedom165 viewsDespite funding setbacks, the Marion fireworks took place this year at Silver Shell Beach under perfectly clear skies. Revelers enjoyed the patriotic music of Phil Sanborn and the Marion Concert Band while brilliant colors illuminated the harbor. Unless the town can secure a permanent source of funding, next year’s fireworks may be in jeopardy. Photo by Felix Perez.

Still Running...157 viewsThey keep you running. The Mattapoisett Road Race Committee, pictured here in their committee t-shirts, has been hard at work over the past year to bring a celebration worthy of the 40-year benchmark. That’s right ¬– the Mattapoisett Road Race has been a part of your Fourth of July celebrations for 40 years! And with all that running, a lot of Old Rochester Regional students have benefitted from the scholarship money that the race raises. Here’s to another 40 years.

Hurricane of 1938194 viewsMattapoisett resident Tim Smith purchased a collection of original Hurricane of 1938 photographs from an auction recently. The photographs show the devastation of the legendary hurricane in the area of Mattapoisett’s Silver Shell Beach and Angelica Point. Mr. Smith does not believe that the pictures have ever been published, and gave The Wanderer the first chance at publishing the photos. He intends on donating the collection to the Mattapoisett Historical Museum. Photos courtesy of Tim Smith.
