Cocktails, featuring a raw bar, donated by Schucks Seafood Catering of Marshfield, buffet, raffle and an awards ceremony will take place at the â€œ19th Hole Receptionâ€ immediately following the tournament at the Duxbury Senior Center.
Proceeds from the event, sponsored in part by Innate Swing Chiropractic and Fitness, will further the organizationâ€™s mission of developing a major museum, family attraction and educational center in Duxbury, featuring the Alden House as its centerpiece.
The Alden House Historic Site and the adjacent â€œ1627 First Siteâ€ are now officially recognized as a National Historic Landmark, reflecting the deep significance in American culture of the heritage of John and Priscilla (Mullins) Alden, the archaeological importance of their ancestral home site, and the influence of their inspiring story through Longfellowâ€™s beloved saga, The Courtship of Miles Standish.
The Alden House, one of very few remaining homes in the country inhabited by the same family for over 350 years, gives the Alden Kindred a unique opportunity to bring history alive through the lives and livelihoods of an average American family.
