How far away do you need to go, to be from 'away'? On A Cape Cod Notebook, Robert Finch brings us another story about his old friend Rowena Myers of Orleans. She lived in the large yellow Greek revival farmhouse at the head of Town Cove from her birth in 1904 to her death in 1996. She recalled for Bob a story from her childhood, when a teacher singled out some classmates by their family names and origins.

This month, the Snow Library in Orleans will be presenting the annual Rowena Myers Concert Series on Saturday afternoons at 4 p.m. The concerts are funded by a bequest from her estate.
