More stories at the Farwell Mill

May 17, 2018

Thorndike — The Farwell Project is presenting and celebrating tales of Waldo County and beyond in a series of story-and-food events in and around the historic Farwell Mill. The Call for Stories series continues Sunday, May 27, at 5 p.m. with “railroad riffraff • backyard blues.”

Hobos and lovers of the rails will tell stories around a campfire; and Joe Kelley will read from his recent history of the Belfast & Moosehead Lake Railroad. Slow-cooked beans and hot dogs will be served. All are welcome.

For more information, about this event at the Farwell Mill and Museum, 37 Gordon Hill Road, call 568-1213 or visit thorndikemill.org. Suggested donation is $2 to $3, $5 for family.

All the Call for Stories events are being recorded in audio and video; those with stories to tell are encouraged to call or email. The series is a project of Timelines Community, Inc, a 501(c)(3) Maine organization, produced through a grant from Maine Community Foundation.

The series will conclude June 22 with a Local Heroes, Lost Legacies event and farm-to-table supper; see the website for details. The mill is now open for the season, Thursdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Everyone is invited top stop, see the progress and peruse the eclectic shops. All purchases benefit the ongoing restoration.
