Historian George Neptune Speaks on October 25


Shaker Museum Curator Linda Aaskov, right, introduces George Neptune to his audience on Sunday at the museum. Neptune, a Native-American historian and basket-maker, was the last of four speakers in the Sid Emery Memorial Forum. The Speakers’ Forum was held this summer by the museum’s Friends organization and the Sanford-Springvale Historical Society. Neptune’s artistic basketry is displayed on the table before them. Videos of two of the earlier lectures in the series are posted here as well. Patrick Bonsant of Saco River TV filmed Neptune’s talk on Sunday, and it will be posted when ready.
