Historical society meeting in Orland



ORLAND — The Orland Historical Society will meet on Wednesday, Aug. 22, at 6:30 p.m. at the museum at 23 School House Road.

Local author and Bucksport Poet Laurate Pat Ranzoni will present a program on the recently published book titled “Still Mill.”

The book is a 432-page collection that was three years in the making. It contains contributions inspired by Orlanders or composed by Orland residents documenting the town’s role in papermaking at the Bucksport paper mill that operated for over 30 years before closing in 2014.

The public is invited to attend the program to hear how the paper mill affected many families in the Bucksport and Orland area.
