Join local ministry for walk
Dartmouth-based organization My Brother’s Keeper will host its 14th Annual Family Walk on June 8 from 9 a.m to 2 p.m. at Stonehill College in Easton to raise awareness of their services.
After the 1.33-mile walk, attendees will be invited to enjoy festivities including inflatable bounce houses and slides, an obstacle course, a climbing wall, live entertainment, and food vendors.
Registration for this event is free.
Those looking to sponsor the walk may visit the event website, or contact the event coordinator Amanda Dean

Eat on the wild side
Walking around in nature, it can feel tempting to want to try and forage some of the natural fruits and leaves, but it can be challenge to identify what is safe to consume.
Those who share this difficulty, can join Dartmouth Natural Resource Trust Development and Outreach Special Kendra Parker on a walk through Slocum’s River Reserve, at 320 Horseneck Road, Saturday, June 8 from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. where she will point out a variety of edible plants that grow on the property.
This event costs $10 per person. Register online now:

Find treasures at yard sales
They wanted it and it happened — the second annual Community-wide Yard Sale will take place this year over the June 8 and 9 weekend. 
In addition to a full list of participating yard sales, the group also created an emoji-coded spreadsheet that details the type of items available at each sale, which is available through the groups Facebook page. An interactive map made with Google maps will be made available as the event date gets closer.

Sunday, June 9

Revolutionary fun at Akin
The Dartmouth Heritage Preservation Trust is hosting its annual “Never Idle Hands — Living in Early America” event with a reenactor of Deborah Sampson on Sunday, June 9 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m at the Akin House.
Sampson lived from 1760 to 1827 and was the first woman to fight in Washington’s Army during the Revolutionary War.  
Attendees will be welcomed to listen to Sampson’s life story of childhood adversity, military service, her disguises to avoid detection, and her postwar activities.
The day will also include 18th century cooking demonstrations by “Tea to Sea” and early woodworking techniques using antique tools. Participants will also be invited to participate in an archeological dig on site.
Music will be provided by the Buzzards Bay Buccaneers. Children will be welcome to play games.
