History of Maine canoes

WAYNE — Rollin Thurlow of Northwoods Canoes will present a program on the history of Maine canoes and will share his research on historic Maine canoe companies at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 18, at the Cary Memorial Library, 17 Old Winthrop Road.

Rollin said, “The ultimate canoeing experience is reserved for those few who paddle the traditional wood and canvas canoe. No other material is so long-lasting and completely restorable after generations of use, or can be constructed with such fine lines, or is so responsive to paddle and pleasing to the eye.

All will be welcome, and the library is handicapped-accessible. Seating first come, first served.
