Lisbon Historical Society to feature ‘who, what, when and where’

LISBON FALLS — The Lisbon Historical Society staff has arranged two activities for the meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 12, at the MTM Center.

First, after sifting through the archives of the old weekly Lisbon Enterprise, they will highlight events that have transpired over the years in town on the week of Valentine’s Day. Club and fraternal organizations held unique themed parties, several severe snow storms occurred, and winter skating parties and horse racing on the Androscoggin and Sabattus rivers told of colder weather in the past.

The second program feature will be a quiz based on projected photos from the society’s collection. Those attending may be able to identify the “who, what, when and where” of the old prints.

The evening will also be the society’s annual handmade Valentine card exchange. Bring a card and collect one in return. Annual dues are also now payable. Secretary/Treasurer Dorothy Smith can provide membership status and accept dues payments at the meeting.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the society’s meeting rooms. Doors will open at 6:30. Entrance and parking are at the rear of the building. Refreshments will be served, and members are invited to bring Valentine-themed food items for the refreshment table. For more information, email [email protected] or call 207-353-8510.
