Residents looking for a last-minute gift might consider “Celebrating Three Hundred Years 1712-2012,” a commemorative book for the tricentennial of “Olde Abington.” Until 1874, Rockland was the village of East Abington, and the tricentennial has included Rockland, Abington, and Whitman, which once was South Abington. The 270-page book is packed with historical photos plus photos of the tricentennial. It costs $20 and is available at the town clerk’s office and Butterfield’s Restaurant. For more information, e-mail abington_ma_300th@verizon.net.
