Ford visits Searsport Historical Society
Searsport — The October meeting of the Searsport Historical Society will take place Tuesday, Oct. 8, at 7 p.m. in Curtis Hall on Church Street. Our guest speaker will be John Ford Sr. The meeting is open to the public, free of charge.
Ford was a State of Maine Game Warden who retired in 1990, then served as Waldo County Sheriff from 1991 to 1999. Throughout his law enforcement career, he compiled innumerable stories. He has shared his experiences in his first published book, “Suddenly the Cider Didn’t Taste so Good”; and in his second book, “This Cider Still Tastes Funny.”
Ford is a gifted speaker who keeps his audiences engaged with his generally hilarious depictions of the people and situation he has encountered over the years. Everyone is invited to this entertaining evening of stories, refreshments and fellowship.
