TURNER – The Carriage House Café will host a dinner and evening of entertainment Thursday, March 6, to call attention to and support the Paper and Heritage Museum of Maine scheduled to open this spring. Music will be provided by Music by MAGIC, a newly formed vocal and instrumental group specializing in easy-listening standards from the ’30s through the ’70s.

Members of Music by MAGIC are no strangers to the central Maine music scene. Pianist Diane J. Biron and vocalist Roland M. Roy have provided musical entertainment in Lewiston-Auburn and surrounding communities for several decades, most notably as directors of and performers in the MAGIC Pops Chorus and in Magic & Company.

Percussionist Conrad Soucy played in local rock bands as a young man and is a member of several area big band groups. Vocalist Joanne Fuller first sang in a folk/folk-rock group known as Chord Majority and also performed with other professional groups between 1970 and 1980.

The goals of the interactive Paper and Heritage Museum of Maine, scheduled to open in May in the former Mill Manager’s House at 22 Church St., are twofold: to preserve the history of the paper industry in Maine and to capture the cultural heritage of the paper-making towns and mills along the Androscoggin River.

The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. Cost of the meal plus entertainment is $25 per person. There will be door prizes and a 50/50 drawing. For tickets, call Sherry at 592-1807 or Claire at 897-3514. Tickets will be held at the door.

The Carriage House Café is at 1523 Federal Road on the Turner/Livermore town line.
