Merry Christmas from FASM


The Friends of the Alfred Shaker Museum would like to wish all our Friends and Members the Love, Peace, and Happiness that the true meaning of Christmas brings.

FASM Welcomes In the Holiday Season

The Friends of the Alfred Shaker Museum held their annual Christmas party with a potluck dinner and gift swap. A short business meeting followed, followed by the drawing of the winner of the Maine Native American basket filled with Shaker-related items. The winner is Ken Shaw, who purchased the winning ticket while visiting the Museum at the Apple Festival in September.

The Museum would also like to thank those who came and shopped on 12/12 as part of Alfred’s “Christmas in the Shire.” The Museum will be open again in March 2016 during Maple Sugar Sunday, and will open for the season in May.
