Women’s March D.C., 2017 talk at Wessaweskeag Historical Society
Women’s March D.C., 2017 will be the topic of the evening for the monthly gathering of the Wessaweskeag Historical Society. The program had originally been planned for the April meeting, but technical problems required the talk to be rescheduled.
Memories of the trip to this historical event will be delivered in a presentation on Thursday, July 13 at 7 p.m. in the society's meeting room behind the Little Red School House Library in South Thomaston. Local residents, Marcia Turner and Kathleen Florance will deliver their program about this historical event, recounting their travels to D.C., the time and experiences at the March and what has been occurring since the March.
