Mark it on your calendar today: Friday evening, September 22, 6:30 PM, Worcester Town Hall. The Worcester Historical Society will hold its annual meeting followed by the premier of "Glimpses of a Simpler Time," a locally written and produced, lighthearted look at Worcester's history. Nine of your neighbors will portray historical figures from the early 19th century: Nancy and Michael Gore, Paul and Brent White, Julia Hewitt, Dave deRosa, Norma Lang, Michelle Hill and David Book. You won't forget the fictional town gossip. A brief business meeting will precede the performance.
