Educational workshop offered: Historic New England’s Haverhill office is offering a new educational outreach workshop for older adults at community centers and residential facilities across the region.

“Remembering Home’’ uses a teaching collection of 20th-century objects and images – from Depression glass to Jello – to evoke memories of the way people lived. The three-week workshop is designed to stir up conversations about homes and housework, food and consumers, entertainment and communication. For one man, a meat-grinder brought back the smells in the kitchen when his mother cooked hamburgers. For another, a pair of ice tongs produced visions of summer days when the delivery man doled out ice chips to the neighborhood kids.
