The Waldo Peirce Reading Room and Library will host a Maine book, craft and food sale, with a drawing for a turkey dinner, on Saturday, Nov. 19, at the library, from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m., when the drawing for the turkey dinner will occur.

While at the library, be sure to go across the street to the Frankfort Congregational Church Christmas fair. This was detailed in last week’s column, but briefly stated, new, nearly new products, linens and things, Rada knives, baked goods, candy, pickles, jelly, oodles of Christmas decorations, wreaths, cemetery pots, a silent auction and more are offered. The fair runs from 8 a.m. to noon and a drawing for the silent auction will happen at 12:30 p.m.

Frankfort Congregational Church will hold a special Hanging of the Greens service at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 27, to mark the beginning of Advent. This is a beautiful service complete with song and scripture readings. Everyone is invited.

Finally, the Frankfort Historical Society, will hold a calendar raffle every day in December. Tickets are $10 each and are available from any Historical Society member or you can visit the reading room and pick one up directly. Local businesses donated a host of very nice items and one of these will be awarded for each day’s drawing. For example, the Dec. 1 winner will receive an electric knife set, donated by Dunnett’s in Bangor. That ticket will go back into circulation with all the other tickets, so chances of winning a prize are good.

Proceeds will go toward the Veteran’s Memorial Fund, to raise money for a new Frankfort Veterans Honor Roll.

November has become a busy month in Frankfort. Try to get out and enjoy the festivities.
