There will be an old fashioned ice cream social, 7 p.m., July 11, on the grounds of the Heritage Museums and Gardens of Dorchester.  The public is invited to attend this annual event and get their fill of ice cream, with their choice of toppings.  The event is free to DCHS members and a donation is requested from nonmembers.

An informal talk by Herschel Johnson will focus on an important person in East New Market history- Sarah Young.  Learn about her life beyond slavery and the impact that she is still having on this community.   Young will be celebrated 11 a.m., Oct. 4, at the annual East New Market Heritage Day.  Hear about the planning and projects that are going into this celebration.

For more information, call 410.228.7953 or email dchs@verizon.net.  The Heritage Museums are located at 1003 Greenway Drive, off of Maryland Avenue East.
