Holiday Party - December 15th at 5 pm


On 12/15, MDI Historical Society’s Annual Holiday Party

Join us for an evening sing-a-long and presentation of our 2017 Objects of the Year

The public is invited to attend the MDI Historical Society’s annual Holiday Party on 12/15 from 5-7pm for a sing-a-long and reception, at which we will unveil our “2017 Objects of the Year” archival project. The gathering will be held in the historic Sound Schoolhouse in Mt Desert, and parking is limited.

About the project: the MDI Historical Society is seeking a few artifacts to represent the year of 2017 in our archives. We welcome small objects (roughly 3”x3”x3”), documents, and photographs that collectively will fit into a box with dimensions 13’’ x 6’’ x 13’’. These materials will be evaluated for their suitability by our Collections Committee and if accepted, they will be cataloged, digitized, kept in a fire-safe and environmentally-controlled storage area, and made accessible for future generations to discover and explore. Please bring your artifacts to the Sound Schoolhouse (373 Sound Drive) before or on the day of our Holiday Gathering on Friday, Dec 15th, from 5-7pm.
