A Successful Event!

   The society sponsored an event on August 17th at the Old Town House in Parsonsfield.  Both the Town House and Union Church were open to visitors and the event was very well attended.

   Sure footed visitors were also able to take a self-guided tour of the cemetery adjacent to the Town House which holds some notable graves of early settlers and Revolutionary war soldiers.

   The event was curated by Lyn Sudlow, a historical society member and resident of Parsonsfield.  We are very thankful for Lyn's outstanding effort.  We may just make this an annual event! 

   Speaking of annual events, be sure to circle September 1, 2013 on your calendar.  That is the day, between 11 am and 2 pm, when another local landmark will be open for visitors.  The Old Meeting House in Porter will again welcome visitors to celebrate its recent renovations.  Please note that this event is on, rain or shine!  Also, their are no "facilities" at the Old Meeting House.  Directions and more details to follow next week.

Local History Matters...Get Involved!
