Searsmont will begin its bicentennial year with a free Founder's Day celebration on Wednesday at the Searsmont Community Center, filled with food and fun, and an extra helping of history. The program begins with a bicentennial proclamation, followed by a concise history of the town, a slide show. There will be replica newspaper pages from the centennial celebration of 1914 and other exhibits , as well as the participation of students from the town’s Ames School. The program ends with Searsmont’s bicentennial birthday cake and other foods and beverages. Bicentennial T-shirts, mugs, baseball caps, and historical calendars will be on sale, and everyone who attends will receive a special gift.
