Join us for the opening of an exhibit of photographs created by over 30 adult English-language learners at SER-Jobs for Progress, Inc. Themes reflect the students' diverse interests and points of view. Some focus promarily on connections with family and friends. Others depict traditions such as the making and sharing of food and celebration of special events. Still others depict the beauty of nature, neighborhoods throughout the city, or new ways to see details of everyday life. Their captions and autobiographical accounts reveal deeply-held hopes and dreams and reveal what it has been like to leave a homeland in order to build a new life for themselves and their children in the U.S.

Become a part of local history! Bring us a photo taken in the Taunton area and let us scan it for our digital collection. We'll give you back the original and your image will become a part of our archive collection. Bring in your photographs, preferably loose rather than in an album, and unframed. Anything up through 11 x 17 inches is welcome. Please provide us any information you have about the photos: people, places, events, local landmarks, holiday displays. Visit those attics, sort those closets, and dig out those boxes of mementos to help us add to the photographic record of our local community!

Until the 1940's there was no reliable way for fishing vessels to communicate with those on shore. Radio telephones, single side band radios, and marine radio operators were important innovations, allowing family members to communicate with loved ones at sea, but no conversation was private. Today, cell and satellite phones and email have facilitated ship to shore communication. Fishermen's wives will share stories about how changes in communication technology have impacted their lives.
