Things to do on a rainy Saturday

It’s Saturday and the forecast is for rain all day. Here are some inside activities that might be of interest:

This morning at 10 a.m., I’ll give a talk on the Sixth Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry Regiment and its service during the American Civil War at the Chelsmford Center for the Arts (the Old Town Hall) which is at 1A North Road in Chelmsford. My talk is part of Chelmsford Civil War Day which also features an exhibit of artifacts from the war and a Civil War era tea, all at the CCA.

This afternoon from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m., I’ll be at the UMass Lowell Downtown Bookstore at 151 Merrimack Street to sign copies of Legendary Locals of Lowell. If you’re looking for a Mother’s Day gift, come to downtown Lowell and check out the bookstore and other nearby establishments such as Welles Emporium, Sweet Lydia’s, and the Cupcake Store.
