“Yearning to Breathe Free: The Immigrant Experience in Maine.”

The story of immigrants in Maine is older than the state itself. From Verrazano’s first glimpse of Maine in 1524 on, immigrants have played a key role in shaping Maine and her people. This program, inspired by our 2015 exhibit of the same name, provides an overview of Maine’s immigrant past, and serves as a reminder of the important role that immigrants will play in our future.

Lunch catered by Jorgensen’s for $10 – Please pay at the door.
