Join Us At A Meeting
Covid-19 Update - August 1, 2021
We continue to watch closely the guidance from the Maine CDC regarding in person indoor meetings.  We are being careful about when in-person meetings make the best sense.  Where appropriate we will hold Zoom Meetings, and others will be in-person. The best way to know what the meeting format will be, would be to check below where it shows our speaker schedule.  That list should tell you whether we are going to meet in-person or not.
 
Please Note: Current guidelines require that all visitors must wear masks until vaccination status is confirmed.

President 2021-2022

Participants were from Waterford, Sweden and Bridgton, along the brook and beyond.  Newcomers and folks with a history of family members working in the mills participated and shared along with the educators.
