Storytelling supper caps Farwell Mill series

Jun 14, 2018

Thorndike — Since early spring, the Farwell Project has presented and celebrated tales of Waldo County and beyond in a series of stories-and-food events in and around the historic Farwell Mill. The Call for Stories series concludes with a special local heroes • lost legacies event Friday, June 22, in the Farwell Mill lumber shed.

Space is limited for the “local heroes • lost legacies” evening, which includes a savory farm-to-table Italian-style supper, as well as tales of young and old. Both local historians and young settlers with interest in the rich background of the area are encouraged to reserve a seat at the table.

Timelines Community, Inc, a 501(c)(3) Maine organization that has taken on the restoration of the 1873 buildings to create museums, general store and community workshop facilities, is hosting the meal. Choices are available for varied dietary preferences. Menu and reservations are available online at thorndikemill.org; suggested donation is $25.

Reservations are recommended, as past events have filled up quickly. For additional information, email thorndikemillmaine@gmail.com or call 722-3112. The event is made possible by a grant from Maine Community Foundation.

The Farwell Mill and Museum, 37 Gordon Hill Road, is open for the season, Thursdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Everyone is invited to stop in, see the progress and peruse the eclectic shops. All purchases benefit the ongoing restoration.
