Historical society needs summer help

Article from The Piscataquis Observer, Vol. 164, No. 26, June 26, 2002
To the editor:

We are interested in creating a larger group of volunteers to help us out at Brownville Historical Society's Museum for the summer of 2002. Jim and Grace both have part-time commitments for jobs this year and it becomes necessary to ask our membership for volunteers for the days when they are working and unable to tend to the museum. This would not be an everyday commitment for anyone, if everyone could donate just one day for this summer we could have complete coverage for the entire summer.

We are open on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 10am to 3pm. If you would be able to donate one day this summer please contact Reuben Lancaster at 943-2185 or Grace Leeman at 965-8584 and we will find a day which would be convenient for you and us. We are presently open and will continue through sometime in September, depending on the weather. Please consider this and let us know if and when you are available for the summer.

We hold our meetings on the fourth Sunday of every month through September, with our annual meeting around Christmas time held at Smith's Grocery with an exchange of gifts and the annual dues are paid for the next year.

We are presently working on our 2002/2003 calendar. This edition will be devoted to the Civil War veterans of Brownville. We have accumulated many photographs of our veterans and are going to share them with the public as a tribute to their sacrifices. If anyone has a photograph they have not shared with us, please submit them soon for our consideration on our next calendar. We cannot guarantee they will be included, but they may be used or displayed here anyway.

We need help for filing, cataloging,display setups, cleaning, scraping and painting and various other jobs, Anything you can do to help us out will be greatly appreciated.

Grace Leeman, Secretary
