The Lincoln County Historical Association Presents

" Kermess" at the
Foye-Sortwell Farm*
104 Churchill Street, Wiscasset

Lobster Bake and Steel Band
on July 24, 2016 5 PM




The Lincoln County Historical Association is having a party! We're calling it a "Kermess," from the Dutch word, meaning an outdoor fundraising festival. The event will raise funds for building maintenance and educational outreach activities.

A traditional lobster bake will include potatoes, corn, and clams plus cole slaw and old fashioned Maine blueberry cake. For guests who prefer an alternative, there will be ribeye steak or South American vegetarian options. Pan Fried Steel, a community band from Yarmouth, will provide the music. In addition to the music and food, the Kermess will feature a silent auction of antiques donated by local dealers and a sale of raffle tickets for gift certificates with values up to $100 donated by more than a dozen Lincoln County restaurants. Kermess tickets ($50 ea.) and raffle tickets ($5 ea. or 5 for $20) are available online (see link above) or by calling 207-882-6817. Seating is limited. All tickets must be purchased in advance. You need not be present to win a raffle prize.

*Located in the Wiscasset Historic District, the Foye-Sortwell Farm was settled in the late 1700s by the Foye family. For many years, it was a working dairy farm, supplying Wiscasset with milk and cream. The barns have been restored by Daniel Sortwell, a descendant of the original settlers.
