    D-Day Remembered: "Operation Overlord" and the Normandy Beach Landings - Custom House Maritime Museum - Presented by: Bronson de Stadler
    Friday, 7/5 & 7/12  from 6:30 - 8:00 pm (estimated end time)

    On the 80th anniversary of D-Day on June 6, 1944, we remember the land, air, and sea forces of the Allied armies brought together in the largest amphibious invasion in military history. Codenamed “Operation Overlord,” the operation, a pivotal moment in World War II, delivered five naval assault divisions to the beaches of Normandy, France. The beaches along a 50-mile stretch were codenamed Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno, and Sword. The invasion force included 7,000 naval vessels and landing craft manned by over 195,000 naval personnel from eight allied countries. Nearly 160,000 troops from the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and twelve other Allied nations landed on D-Day to face Hitler’s formidable Atlantic Wall. Learn about the complex Allied planning leading up to the invasion, daring military innovations, and what happened on the beaches of “The Longest Day” through known history and the personal experience of one naval landing craft operator on Utah Beach. A slide show and original, never-before-seen photos are part of the presentation.

    Bronson de Stadler is a retired clinical social worker and amateur historian, and lives in Newburport. His father was a naval petty officer and motor machinist’s mate on Utah Beach during the Normandy invasion.

    In addition to this lecture, the CHMM will arrange a small exhibit highlighting important artifacts in the collections that pertain to the D-Day lands.

Learn about the complex Allied planning leading up to the invasion, daring military innovations, and what happened on the beaches of “The Longest Day” through known history and the personal experience of one naval landing craft operator on Utah Beach. A slide show and original, never-before-seen photos are part of the presentation.

    Bronson de Stadler is a retired clinical social worker and amateur historian, and lives in Newburport. His father was a naval petty officer and motor machinist’s mate on Utah Beach during the Normandy invasion.

    In addition to this lecture, the CHMM will arrange a small exhibit highlighting important artifacts in the collections that pertain to the D-Day lands.

    About Buffett Beach Blast:

    One of the most fun events of the summer!

    Fire up the grills, crank the tunes, pour the margaritas, and decorate the car. Start your evening at the tailgate party (separate ticket) in the adjacent parking lot then move inside for the show. Changes In Latitudes is the country’s premier tribute to the Mayor of Margaritaville, Jimmy Buffett. This nationally acclaimed band travels the country with beach balls and leis flying, dancing conga lines, and “Trop Rock” fun for all. It’s the ultimate beach party with an amazing authentic reproduction of the Jimmy Buffett concert experience.

    Steve Kareta mimics Jimmy’s casual, storyteller style, while these world-class musicians, traveling with a full tropical stage set-up, will take you on a musical cruise through the sun-drenched waters of the Caribbean. You can expect to hear such classics as “Margaritaville”, “Come Monday”, “Cheeseburger In Paradise”, “Volcano”, and, of course, “Changes In Latitudes, Changes In Attitudes”, as well as other crowd-pleasing favorites, like “Brown Eyed Girl”, “Southern Cross”, “Another Saturday Night”, and the Alan Jackson / Jimmy Buffett hit “It’s Five O’clock Somewhere”.

    It’s all to benefit the Salisbury Beach Partnership’s 11 weeks of free Summer outdoor concerts and fireworks shows!

    Theater at the Bell presents Groundhog Day The Musical 
    Show times & days: 7/19, 7/20, 7/26 & 7/27  from 7:30 - 10 pm
    Matinee show times & days: 7/20, 7/21, 7/27 & 7/28 from 2 - 5 pm
    @ The Clark School, Rowley, MA

    Critically acclaimed on both the West End and Broadway, Groundhog Day revels in one man's journey of self-discovery, day after day. Inspired by the hilarious film starring Bill Murray, Groundhog Day features a book by original co-screenwriter Danny Rubin, and music and lyrics by Tony Award nominee Tim Minchin (Matilda the Musical).

    How would you spend your time if forced to repeat the same day over and over again? Phil Connors, a seasoned big-city weatherman, is frustrated to be reporting the annual Groundhog Day Ceremony in small town Punxsutawney, PA. His arrogance and cynicism are in direct opposition to the cheery townsfolk, who are ready for their favorite Groundhog to not see his shadow and welcome an early spring. After disdainfully covering the rodent's negative forecast, he awakens the next day only to discover it's February 2 once more. Initially in disbelief, Phil finally accepts he is doomed to repeat the same day over and over again....

    Will Phil accept that he is doomed to repeat the same day over and over again? Or will he find the courage to change himself and his fate?
