JEFFERSON, Maine — To help complete the restoration of the second floor of the Old Jefferson Town House, the Jefferson Historical Society is having a $500 cash raffle to be drawn at noon on Jefferson Day, Saturday, Aug. 18.
The first ticket to be drawn will be for $500; the second, $100 and the third, $75. Only 300 tickets at $10 each will be sold!
This is one of several fund-raising efforts to help the JHS complete the project before winter arrives. The goal is to have the back of the building painted and the second floor completely restored before the cold weather arrives.
The historical society has been working since about 2000 to complete the extensive project to make a local history center for displays and research. For more information or for tickets, call 207-549-5258.
