Anniversaries and … oops

Wed, 07/10/2024 - 9:00am

We’ve had a lot of notable anniversary articles in the newspaper lately, including this week’s 60th anniversary of Boothbay Railway Village Museum and the 50th anniversary of Boothbay Region Arts & Crafts Guild. We’ve also featured Downeast Candies’ 50th anniversary, announced the 50th anniversary of Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences (which will hold a number of events during the year), the town of Edgecomb’s 250th year with several articles, the Memorial Library’s 100th year, and the 70th year of the Strawberry Festival in Wiscasset.

Anniversary celebrations take a lot of hard work by volunteers and employees and we congratulate them all for their milestones.

Oops. We published an obituary online on Tuesday morning by mistake. It was taken offline immediately after we were notified by her friend that she is still alive. We apologize to anyone who may have been affected by this premature announcement.
