Haystack Historical Society
The Haystack Historical Society Museum will be open from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturdays in August. If you have a group or family members from away who would like to visit our School Museum during off hours, there is a note on the door with a list of members who can be reached to open the museum up for you.
As an added project this summer, we are having a yard sale in the east wing of the building every Saturday from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Lots of items have been donated by supporters and you will find something that will interest you. Come in, visit our Museum and shop at our yard sale.
Castle Hill Grange Hall Preservation Society
The Castle Hill Grange Hall Preservation Society is looking for new members. Please give them an hour of your time once a month to help keep the building operating. The fund-raisers they have are just paying their expenses and leave them with little else to do their projects. If you have enjoyed voting, going to town meetings, their suppers, having a reasonable hall to rent right in your own town, and other events, please consider helping to keep their organization going for future years. Dues for a working member is $10 per year, or $15 for non-working member, or $100 for a lifetime membership. Their meetings are the fourth Tuesday of the month from February through November. They are now renting the hall from May through October for showers, reunions, and birthday parties. Please see any member for details.
They are requesting that anyone who has knowledge of a veteran who served in the military between 1903 to the present to write or call Natalie Maynard, 2877 State Road, Castle Hill, Maine 04757 or 764-4878. They need names, dates, and any information you can give them so they can place the names on a sign or in a book in the future. The person must have been a resident of Castle Hill at the time of service.
Mapleton United Methodist Church
The Mapleton United Methodist Church luncheons are held every Friday at 11:30 a.m. The next luncheon is Friday, Aug. 3. This is open to the public and there is no cost. Donations are accepted. Hope to see you there.
