Sometimes we have to look back to see exactly how far we have come. That is the purpose of this Massasoit Community College Picture Memory Quilt. It is a very small selection of many Massasoit picture memories shared over the last 50 years. Our hope is that as we reflect on memories of Massasoit, we will see how far we have come in “our lifetime”. Happy Birthday Massasoit!
