Please join the Georges River Land Trust to celebrate twenty-five years of conservation along the St. George River! Georges River Land Trust is hosting a series of events this summer that both highlight the beauties of the St. George River watershed and offer some great entertainment in mid-coast Maine. One of these events will be held on Thursday, June 21, at Lyman-Morse Boatbuilding in Thomaston, when the company will open its doors for a tour of the facility followed by hors d’oeuvers along the St. George River.
THE ART OF BOATBUILDING: LYMAN-MORSE
Thursday, June 21, 2012; 4:30-7 PM
Boat building has been a significant feature of the Thomaston waterfront for more than 150 years. For more than a century, graceful Alden Malabar schooners and sturdy Friendship sloops “slid down the ways” in Thomaston, “the town that went to sea.” In the late 1970’s Lyman-Morse opened it doors on the St. George River and quickly earned a reputation for building exceptional customized sailing and motor yachts. Come see what boat building is like today. You will tour the eco-friendly “green” facility of Lyman-Morse to learn more about how modern techniques, together with traditional boat building skills, produce these beautiful yachts. Then, enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres on the bank of the St. George River.
Hosted by Cabot and Heidi Lyman, limited to 30 participants. Cost for Georges River Land Trust Members, $25; Non-Members, $30.
