SEARSPORT — On Thursday, June 20, at 6 p.m., Penobscot Marine Museum kicks off their 2019 Speaker Series with “Where in the World” with John Worth. The presentation takes place at the museum’s Visitor Center located at 2 Church St. The cost is $5 for museum members and $8 for general admission, and is presented in conjunction with the Maine Retired Skippers.

Worth spent his life driving tugs, windjammers and other workboats on Penobscot Bay. The talk will focus on the ports he visited and the adventures he had traveling up the Hudson, Erie Canal, St. Lawrence, and down the Chambly Canal, through Lake Champlain, and back out the Hudson.

PMM’s 2019 Speaker Series has been made possible thanks to support from Hamilton Marine. For more information, visit or call 548-2529.
