The Edgecomb Historical Society will be having a meeting next week and would love as many interested Edgecomb and area residents to share in the discussion. The Historical Society is a wonderful learning tool for children and families. The following is a message from EHS: "We strongly encourage all past and present members of The Edgecomb Historical Society area residents and friends of Edgecomb history to attend a very important meeting to discuss the future of the EHS at Town Hall on Thursday, October 14th, at 7:00 p.m. Since the future of The EHS is in jeopardy, we would welcome input from all attendees."
