MINOT – The Minot Historical Society met Jan. 9 at the Minot Town Office with 19 attending.

At the last meeting, Donald Verrill was elected chairman of obtaining bids for a stone in memory of all Minot military personnel who have served in the wars. He reported that Collette Monuments of Lewiston has given the best price.

The American Legion Post 150 of Mechanic Falls, Poland and Minot has offered to pay half the cost. The society needs to raise the remainder. Members discussed possible fundraisers later in the spring and summer.

Nancy Conant said Joyce Hellen has donated pictures of Minot residents in the Auburn centennial parade and also articles regarding Minot Corner. Janet Trundy Bernier has donated her father’s old Minot baseball uniform and articles her mother had written about Minot. A resident has offered to do the landscaping if the society will pay for the materials.

Eleanor Thayer suggested the society have a book or notebook with the names of all those from Minot who have served in the Revolutionary War to the present day.

Thayer also suggested discussing meeting plans for the coming year. Several suggestions were given and plans were made to have copies for the March meeting.

Refreshments and conversation followed the meeting.

There will be no meeting in February. The next meeting will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 13, at the Town Office when the speaker will be Fire Chief Steve French, who will talk on the Minot Fire Department.
