What are you thankful for?

   November is a time we give thanks for all the wonderful things in our lives.  On Saturday, November 10th those of us at History House gather for our annual Thanksgiving luncheon.  Everyone is invited and you just need to call our secretary, Jan Iler, to reserve your seat...625-7019.

   At our luncheon we give thanks to all of you who helped out at History House this small and big ways.  We also give thanks that we have a repository of our local history which is open and accessible to everyone.  Are you thankful too?  It takes so little to show your appreciation of the efforts of those who want to keep your local history alive.  Membership in the Parsonsfield-Porter Historical Society is one way but attendance at our open houses and events is another. Helping out at our various fund raising events, like our annual yard sale, is another way you can help the society continue our efforts of maintaining History House and the collection.The year is coming to a close in a few weeks and you might like to take the opportunity to give an additional tax deductible contribution to the Parsonsfield-Porter Historical Society.  All gifts, no matter how large or how small are gratefully accepted.

   Our luncheon brings to a close the years events but now, thanks to this blog, we can keep sharing with you snippets of local history on a monthly basis.  We will publish two post each month which will feature a photograph and a brief write up.  So, check back frequently for your Local History Dispatch!

   We hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving and we again thank you all for helping us demonstrated that Local History Matters!
