2020 though 2021 Exhibit
Growing Up on Chebeague
Winter 2019 & 2020 Project:
Active identification of photos, artifacts and memorabilia which reflect growing up on Chebeague
The Chebeague Island Historical Society will explore the subject of childhood on the island in its 2020-2021 exhibit: Growing up on Chebeague through the Centuries. The exhibit will include photographs, artifacts, and memorabilia that will tell the story of island childhoods from birth to marriage. It doesn’t matter if you lived on Chebeague for all of your childhood or just spent summers here, we want to include your stories. We hope to have a wall that features favorite childhood photos from the early days of photography to the present and are also looking for group photos such as school, church, birthday parties, organizations, picnics etc that will help tell the story. Your photos will be scanned and the original returned to you. We will need toys, games, clothing and other artifacts and will happily accept loans for this exhibit.
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call Donna Damon 846-5140 and let us know how you can help and what you have to share. All photos and artifacts must be received by January 15, 2020 to be included in this exhibit. While we won’t be able to use everything, we will use something from everyone. Don’t be left out. Starting looking for items relating to your childhood as well as that of your ancestors, your children and grandchildren. Check the Island Calendar, the CIHS web site, and Chebeague.org as the exhibit evolves.
