SOUTH PARIS – The Paris Cape Historical Society will feature Paul and Kate Artlip of Waterford with their program on the Civil War at 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 19, at the museum, 77 High St.

The Artlips have moved 32 times so they could visit the battlefields and museums to learn more about the Civil War and gather artifacts. Artlip will speak about the passion he has for learning more about the generals and battles, and he will show items he has collected.

Anyone with photos or relics of their family members relating to their part in the Civil War may bring them.

The meeting will begin with a brief business meeting with Glenn Davis, president, updating those present about the process the Paris Cape is following to encourage new memberships and donations to the new museum.

The museum is open each Thursday from 1 to 4 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. for tours and genealogical study.

Refreshments will be served after the program. The Paris Cape has 2005 calendars available with photos of people and places of Paris many years ago and recently published books telling about area cemeteries and those interred.
