TEMPLE — The Temple Historical Society’s 2019 calendar, Remember When, is dedicated to a time when some simpler things in life were the norm.

Through the years items such as the treadle sewing machine, kerosene lamps, kitchen cook stove, butter churns and molds, and outhouses have faded into the past but are not forgotten by the older generation.

Each month of the calendar features an item from the past with a story, and many pages have old advertisements for these items taken from a scrapbook donated to the society years ago when the Jake Wirth camp was cleaned out and the scrapbook was found. Some of the ads were for old Farmington businesses such as Tarbox Brother, Druggists.

All of the photos, information  and comical poetry regarding items were gathered from members of the society.

The calendar is available at the Town Office and from members of the society for $10. For more information contact Jean Mitchell at 207-778-2462 or Betsy Graves at 207-778-0837.
