One of the highlights of “Preservation Party,” Lincoln County Historical Association’s (LCHA) annual fundraiser dinner, is the auction of cakes by the delightful veteran auctioneer, Kaja Veilleux, of Thomaston Place Auction Galleries. Each dessert is artfully displayed in a “dance of desserts” by apron-clad volunteers who wind their way through the tables to encourage lively bidding. Winners often share their treasures with other guests during the evening.

But the tasty desserts are only one reason to attend this year’s event. LCHA’s party planners offer a catered three-course Italian dinner, guitar music by David Lawlor and Neil Lamb, and an auction of experiences. Bidders can win one of two vacations in Italy, a theater package, a fishing trip, a cooking class/dinner for six, a photographic portrait, and more. Guests may also purchase raffle tickets for a wide variety of gift cards.

Now is the time to reserve your place at the table. Tickets are available online at www.lincolncountyhistory.org. The date is Sunday, September 10, rain or shine. The place is the Pownalborough Court House in Dresden. The fun begins at 4:00 pm.

Proceeds from Preservation Party support LCHA’s mission to collect, preserve, and interpret the history of Lincoln County, Maine. Key to the work of the organization is the stewardship of three historic buildings: the 1761 Pownalborough Court House, in Dresden, the 1811 Old Jail, in Wiscasset, and the 1754 Chapman-Hall House, in Damariscotta.
