We invite the public to join us, Monday, November 13, from 3:00 to 4:00pm. Steve Gifford will present a program entitled “The Finnish Imprint”.  He has been interested in all things Finnish for a good part of his life and recently returned from his fifth trip to Finland.  Steve, and his wife Mary, have created summer exhibits for the Finnish House in South Thomaston for the past ten years on various aspects of the mid-coast Finnish American settlement.  The program will be an overview of the Finnish community in mid-coast Maine and will include the Finns' reasons for immigrating and their choice to settle here.
 
The Lincoln Home is located at 22 River Road, overlooking the Damariscotta River, in Newcastle. For more information, please contact Rhonda Hanna, Director of Community Life, at 563-3350. This event is free and open to the public.
