Historical society
annual meeting

The Buxton-Hollis Historical Society, 100 Main St., Bar Mills, will conduct its annual meeting with election of officers, a potluck dinner and program from 5-9 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3.

Nancy Ponzetti, historian and teacher, will present the program about the confederacy of the Wabanaki, “People of the Dawn.”

“The Wabnaki are the first people of the area of Northeastern New England and Maritime Canada, living here for over 12,000 years. At one time, there were more than 20 nations of the Wabanaki Confederacy. There are only four nations still in existence in Maine: the Maliseet, Micmac, Passamaquoddy and Penobscot. More than 16 nations were completely destroyed,” the historical society said in its announcement.

To reserve your seat and let organizers know of a potluck contribution, call 929-4592. Suggested donations are $10; seniors, $8.
