The Annual Meeting is an important part of MHS. It is focused on our members, and is the moment they come together for updates on all aspects of the organization, including the election of Trustees (voted by the members); to vote on current business (including updated bylaws this year); and, to recognize volunteers, trustees, and historians who have made an impact.
This year’s program is particularly rich in Maine history: the Pepperell Mill Campus is stunning—for its scale, architecture, visceral sense of history, and its redevelopment ambition. Likewise, Colin Woodard is one of Maine’s most perceptive current thinkers about history. He gives a great deal of care and thought to the role that history plays in contemporary life, something that is very important to MHS.
If you are an MHS member, thank you. If you are not yet, the Annual Meeting is a wonderful moment to join and get more involved in MHS. To register for the meeting, call 774-1822.
