PARIS — The Paris Cape Historical Society will hold its first meeting of the year at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 21, at the museum, 77 High St., South Paris. After a brief business meeting Stuart Goodwin will speak on the history of Norway Pine Grove Cemetery and explain why it is now in South Paris. Refreshments will be served after the meeting. The building is handicapped accessible.

The Board of Trustees and Officers met on April 5 to hear reports and start planning for the new year. A nominating committee will be meeting to formulate a slate of officers. During the winter the society was given a donation of $20,000 from the Deering McCormack Family Foundation of Chicago to be used for improvements to the property. The board discussed areas which need attention.

Meetings of the society are held at 7 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month from April through December. Starting in May the museum will be open from 1 to 4 p.m. each Thursday so that the public may see artifacts pertaining to Paris and to do research in the library. New members are welcomed to join the society and participate in its ongoing activities and projects.
