Celebration Committee Wrapup
Unlike many towns that celebrated their Settlement for a few days this year, Machiasport celebrated all year long. The 250th Celebration Committee met for the final time in November. Speaking to volunteers, veterans and guests Sandra K. Prescott and Rick Bury, co-chairs thanked everyone for their many contributions. Sandra introduced the committee officers, guests, and veterans. Beverly Taylor, Secretary, provided copies of a Memory Book full of the many committee accomplishments. Russell Wright, a local businessman, donated the copper Time Capsule for the 250th Celebration. A Time Capsule Committee was formed and decided on the contents. The Time Capsule will be officially presented to the Board of Selectmen at the Historical Society’s Annual Christmas Party to be held on December 8, 2013 with the request that it be opened in 50 years (2063) as part of Machiasport’s 300th Celebration.
