Historical Tidbit:
East Bridgewater Sesquicentennial Commemorative Medal

The face of the Medal depicts the early building of the Carver Cotton Gin Company, including its beautiful bridge spanning the Satucket River.

The structures have long since been replaced, but the location is still the same. The Cotton Gin Company is one of the many early industries which played an important part in the lifestyle of this town.

The words "Pioneering in Industry" and "Time Past - Time Present" appear along with the dates 1823-1973. The reverse of the Medal is the Town Seal. The medal was first available in November of 1972, was designed by Richard Bartlett, and was struck by the V.H. Blackinton & Co. Inc., Attleboro Falls, Massachusetts.

The Town Seal on the reverse of the medal was designed by Mr. Jarvis Burrell and depicts the purchase of the land known as Bridgewater from Chief Ousamequin (Massasoit) of the Wampanoag tribe.

"Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success." ~ Edward Everett Hale

"Keep on beginning and failing. Each time you fail, start all over again, and you will grow stronger until you have accomplished a purpose - not the one you began with perhaps, but one you'll be glad to remember." ~ Anne Sullivan

"First comes thought; then organization of that thought, into ideas and plans; then transformation of those plans into reality. The beginning, as you will observe, is in your imagination."
~ Napoleon Hill
We have to start ... time to get going : ) ... Enjoy the process & connection, I see the sparks flying from here! ~ Jacquie
