We’re planning to have a slide show featuring Stiles and his friends and family, plus a display of some of his carvings and his boxing gear.
We’ll supply some snacks but please bring your own beverage.

The Fell House is located at 475 Franklin Turnpike, caddy-corner from the Celery Farm parking lot. You can park on the northbound side of the Franklin Turnpike so long as you don’t park on the sidewalk (against state law; you could get a ticket, and it's tough on pedestrians). https://goo.gl/maps/bMtW7XvE14wCTcy28
