2018 KHS EVENTS SCHEDULE

One of the main ways the Kennebec Historical Society achieves its goal of dissemination of knowledge of Kennebec County history is through public programs and lectures.

KHS provides these programs through the dues and donations of members. They are open to the public. A small voluntary donation from non-members is accepted. The programs generally occur on the third Wednesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. Locations vary. While most take place in Augusta, KHS also schedules speakers in other Kennebec County communities.

UPCOMING EVENTS

You enjoy our monthly programs and presentations!  Would you like to assist in hosting?  Annie, our superb Program and Publicity Committee chair, could use some helping hands. 

What do you have to offer?  She needs help with setting up and closing down the venues.  A happy person to circulate with the guest book.  Kitchen savvy folks to bake goodies for the dessert table (or go to the supermarket and buy tasty items) and others to manage and tidy up the table.  Greeters, name-tag managers, help in promoting and selling at the author's table, or simply promoting our great Society to any newcomers.

Winters are long in Maine.  Come, be educated and further enlightened, and join the warm and friendly volunteer squad!
