Upcoming presentations:

The Chamber of Commerce: How It Began and Evolved in Lewiston and Auburn with Phil Nadeau
May 21, 1:00 p.m.
It may be the first time that the comprehensive history of both Lewiston and Auburn’s Chamber of Commerce history has been presented publicly and some of his findings may surprise people who have been connected to the Chamber for decades.
Phil Nadeau has had many careers before settling into the public administration profession. Most notably, Nadeau served as the city’s primary contact for immigrant and refugee policy, programming, and services. During his tenure, he was interviewed by many major national and international print, radio, television news organizations, and journalists including the Associated Press; Chicago Tribune; Boston Globe; New York Times; Washington Post, ABC News, Al-Jazeera, The Chinese Global Television Network, CBC Radio Canada, German Public Radio, and many more. Phil’s history research has been published and he is currently producing a free YouTube history program called “Deconstructing Lewiston-Auburn and Maine History” that now has 4 episodes covering the local and state impacts of Raytheon’s 1959 arrival in Lewiston.

The Isle of Jersey through the Ages with Judy Hierstein
May 28, 1:00 p.m.
The Isle of Jersey has a long, rich history indeed! From a neolithic grave built around 4000 BC (Les Monts Grantez), the Celtic Hoard of coins housed at La Hougue Bie, the German occupation in WWII, to the present-day sunny tourist beaches, Jersey has a lot to explore for such a small island. We will take a guided tour offered by a longtime local resident – my cousin!
Judy felt privileged to be given a warm welcome and insider tour of this beautiful place.
