Greetings to you all! CHECK IT OUT! See past issues and much more. 2 SSM is a Proud Member Autumn in New England and the South Shore is a favorite season for many, including myself! The change in the skies, the colors, the various festivals, football and so much more make Autumn a bustle of activities before we all hunker down for winter. On the topic of bustling activities, just prior to World War II, the South Shore was still a very agricultural based-area with pockets of industry. The town where I have lived my entire life, Hingham, was still very rural, and its population was under 5,000. When the United States became an active ally in the World War II war efforts, it identified the Bethlehem Steel Fore River Yard as a strategic location for shipbuilding. This area of Hingham that we now know as residences and shops was transformed from open fields to a full-blown shipyard in less than 18 months, and Hingham's population swelled to nearly 50,000 during war time. Fast forward to the present and the O'Connor family of Hingham, owners of The Briar Group in Boston, has opened a new dynamic restaurant in the Hingham Shipyard that pays homage to its history: The Beth (Bethlehem Hingham Shipyard. This open, airy, upscale, waterfront location has a variety of food and beverages to satisfy any palate. Stop by and enjoy! "Our Community" section features a wonderful article on the works of The Arc of the South Shore and their tireless mission to help those in the special needs, intellectually challenged world. We also have an article on South Shore Special Education Services, a recent start up that is providing much-needed resources and services to students and others. Have you been dreaming of a trip to Ireland, Scotland, England or Wales? A chance to golf, see famous castles or explore your family lineage? Old Sod Travel, run by Hingham native Tom Casey, provides concierge services for your vacation. Their years of experience and working connections will make it the customized trip of your dreams! As we know, the pandemic changed a lot of things, and one of the largest changes is where we work. Many people have difficulty working from home, and Workspace has the solution! Their multiple locations provide several different work space options, both long and short term. In our Health and Wellness section, our friends at Glow Beauty Boutique in Braintree are introducing even more options on skin services that make your skin happy and healthy. Drs. Christine Hamori and Christine DiEdwardo and their team are at it again! Their advanced Morpheus8 skin service repairs and rejuvenates lax skin, fine line and discoloration.
