WATERFORD — The Waterford Historical Society will host its annual meeting and the first program offering of the season on Thursday, June 13 at the society’s historic Old Town House Museum, at 647 Waterford Rd., Waterford – next to Keoka Lake Public Beach. The annual meeting will begin at 6:30, followed by a presentation focusing on the creative use of WHS archives by two local authors.

Two noted Waterford authors, Bob Spencer and Judy Green, will share with attendees how they used the Waterford Historical Society collections as source material for their writing. Mr. Spencer, who makes his home in a converted mill in South Waterford, is the author of “The Spinster’s Hope Chest,” and more recently, “Prospects – Mining Maine for Riches.” Both historical novels are set in Waterford.

Judith Green, who continues her family’s legacy as a resident of North Waterford, is the author of several award-winning short stories. Her mysteries revolve around schoolteacher Margery Easton and her family, and take place in the same Maine town, though her tales stretch across generations. Her long connection to Waterford inspires her stories.

This program, facilitated by trustee Nancy Marcotte, marks the first of a series of events organized by the Waterford Historical Society and offered monthly through November, usually every second Thursday. The events are free, and the public is enthusiastically invited to attend. A complete schedule of events and further information about the WHS are available at waterfordme.org, or on the Waterford Maine Historical Society page on Facebook.
