NCC HISTORICAL SOCIETY PRESERVATION COMMITTEE
Can you unscramble the following words? Hint: these are items in our new display: KLECRPEI, HOSNESOSW, and AHTAVRHA.
Did you know the answer to the riddle posed a couple of weeks ago? “I don’t really fly but glide from tree to tree. I have claws to help me climb. I eat plants, tree sap, and insects. I have large eyes and a flat tail. What am I?”
The new Game Warden/Outdoor Adventure display is open. For the answers to the riddle and word scramble, stop by the Newport Cultural Center and see the new displays in the foyer and exhibit room.
The hunt is on. The Historical Preservation Committee invites children and adults to participate in the Maine Animal Hunt (resin animal, not live). There is a page of riddles, like the one above, to solve and search for the animals hidden somewhere inside the Newport Cultural Center. The Maine Animal Hunt will be available until Saturday, February 24th. Once you finish the hunt, fill out a ticket for a chance to win a prize. The drawing will be held on Saturday, February 24th. Are you interested in Newport’s history? Do you have some Newport history to share with others? Do you have historical Newport items to donate? If so, the Historical Preservation Committee would like to hear from you. Join the group at regular meetings on the third Saturday of the month at 10 AM at the Newport Cultural Center located at 154 Main Street in Newport. If you are unable to attend meetings, contact ncchistorical@gmail.com or 368-5074. The NCC is open Tuesday through Friday from 9:30 AM to 5:30 PM and Saturday 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM
