Speakers’ Series Inaugural Session May 22

Alfred Shaker Museum and the Sanford-Springvale Historical Society will offer a second year of the Sid Emery Memorial Forum this coming season. It will again be a four-event program that focuses on both Maine history and culture.

The series will begin on May 22 at 1:30 p.m. at Alfred Shaker Museum. The event is free to the public, though donations will be gratefully accepted.

On Sunday, May 22, Noble High School student Noah Binette will describe his research on the tragic story of the evictions of 40 legal residents of Malaga Island, off the Maine coast, in 1912. The victims were a poor ethnic community who had little ability to fight for themselves. Some were sent to mental institutions and even the island cemetery was removed. Binette, who will be a high school senior in the fall, has won state and national awards for his account of their story.

Museum Hours:

Museum Hours: 1 PM - 4 PM on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and by appointment.

Closing for the season on November 15.

Admission: Free. Donations are gratefully accepted.
