We would like to extend an invitation to our MADA members. We will be hosting a Spring Social on Thursday April 27th, 2017 at the Brunswick Inn from 5pm to 7pm. We will have complimentary hors d’oeurves, cash bar and a presentation of the new book: “Maine on Glass, The Early Twentieth Century in Glass Plate Photography”, presented by: Earle G. Shettleworth, Jr., W.H. Bunting, and Kevin Johnson. Earl and his fellow co-authors will be available to sign copies of the book for whom ever would like to purchase one.
Along with the fun of the presentation, this event is a chance to get to know each other, discuss the future for the organization and hear any questions, concerns or suggestions from our members.
Remember to mark your calendars for Wednesday August 23rd, 2017 for our 20th annual Coastal Maine Antiques Show in Damariscotta, ME. Show applications will be sent out shortly.
