HOPE — The secret is out. After the recent Pen Bay Pilot feature, the public knows what many Hope residents have known for years: neighbor Wayne Twitchell, a welder according to Hope Chronicles, is an accomplished sculptor, too.
That wasn’t a secret really, according to Hope Historical Society, in a news release, but, as Pen Bay Pilot explained, Wayne doesn’t advertise his work. You can only buy his steel sculptures at one store in Lincolnville, and at the Twitchells’.
Thursday, August 20, at 7 p.m., in lieu of its monthly meeting, Hope Historical Society will meet at Wayne and Linda’s for a tour of the workshop/art studio.
Like all meetings of Hope Historical Society, this one is free and open to all. Meet at the Twitchells’, 519 Barnestown Road, near the Camden line.
During Hope Historical’s September meeting, Jim Dellapena will present "a brief history of astronomy, plus stars, the speed of light and more" and, weather permitting arrange viewing through his telescope..
The October meeting will feature Hope’s world-traveler/photographer Ron Smith, just returned from hiking Greenland’s 100-mile Arctic Circle Trail.
