North Lovell Conversations

The Lovell Historical Society is proud to present "North Lovell Conversations" this Sunday, July 8th at 1 pm.

Five members of North Lovell's community will participate in a roundtable discussion about the development of this unique area of town. Until the advancement of transportation, North Lovell was an isolated community with its own industry and schools. The area has witnessed major changes over time, particularly as a result of the growth of tourism.

Jo Radner, past president of the American Folklore Society and the National Storytelling Network, will moderate the discussion. Panel members include Fred Fox, Jack Hawley, Cliff Hill, Bill Lord & Ruth Mitchell.

Come listen to these five storytellers recount life in North Lovell. Audience members will be encouraged to join in the discussion. The program will be held at the Grange Hall on Route 5 next to the Lewis Dana Memorial Library. Admission is FREE!

Thanks to Pam Bliss for her hard work in organizing this discussion. Refreshments, courtesy of Kezar Realty, will be served after the event. For more information, call 207-925-3234.

    I wish I'd been there for these discussions, as it might have brought back interesting memories of my childhood coming up to North Lovell. Our cabins are on the north end of the lake in north bay. we would shop for groceries at the North Lovell store, sometimes taking our motor boat over to the town landing and walking to the store with the little red wagon to carry the groceries back to the boat. I remember taking books out of the library when it first opened, and picking up our mail at the North Lovell post office, where it was forwarded from home. I wish I could remember the post mistress' name... But I can't. Maybe my sisters can...? We will be up for 10 days as of July 18th. I can't wait to feel Kezar's refreshing waters....!

      I was very pleased with how it came out. There were plenty of good stories and Jo Radner, the moderator, did a terrific job of weaving the stories together. The Historical Society will be putting DVD's together for sale. Perfect time to be coming to town. The weather has been outstanding! (which we deserve after several weeks of steady rain)
