Friends of Westport Island History invite town residents – young and old, newcomers and many-generation islanders – to the first meeting of the new history group on Sunday, Aug. 16 at 2 pm.
The meeting will be in the old Town Hall on Main Road, and set up to be socially distanced, much like town meeting. Please bring a mask to wear.
Friends will talk about the town’s historical collections and have a number of items on display; will discuss the recent move of the collections to a new and more environmentally controlled space; the upcoming Westport Island History Trail; and plans for the coming year.
So that we have an idea about attendance (and spacing), please register by emailing FOWIH19@gmail.com or text or call Mary Ellen Barnes (207-380-5926) for more information.
