As summer fades into fall, the Bangor Historical Society has added two “Harvest Wine at Hill House” dates to its calendar of events.
Sponsored by Russ Harrington from Better Homes and Gardens The Masiello Group, the fall events are scheduled for September 24 and October 22 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
“Harvest Wine at Hill House” continues a tradition that began earlier this year with the BHS’s “Summer Wine at Hill House” membership receptions. While a BHS membership is required to attend, each event includes complimentary wine, chosen by Shane McCarthy and State Street Wine Cellar, as well as hors d’oeuvres from Simply Sweet and Marilynn Bishop.
The October event will also include the chance to take the popular “Ghostly Bangor” walking tour at a discounted rate.
“The wine receptions started as a way to say ‘thank you’ to our members and to show off what’s new in our collection and with our programs,” Executive Director Melissa Gerety said. “The support has been tremendous—and the events are a lot of fun! We are thrilled to be able to continue into the fall months.”
BHS Memberships start at $25 and are available online at www.bangorhistoricalsociety.org or at the entrance to the event. More information is available by calling 942-1900 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
