Visit us at the Blue Hill Fair!

Submitted by David
 

After a 20 year hiatus we are back at the Blue Hill Fair!   Find us in the former Beano building across from the Fair Office.  Come see your old favorites like Dead River Rough Cut and From Stump to Ship on the big screen.  We will have our DVD line, Videos of Life in New England, for sale and staff on hand to answer questions about transferring your home movies or how to care for your film.  As a special surprise we will show home movie footage of past Blue Hill Fairs from the collections of Adelaide Pearson/Blue Hill Library, Charles S. Clark and Sheldon Weiss Productions.  Our focus this year is sharing not only films from all over northern New England but showcasing selections featuring Hancock County.  Thank you to the Maine Community Foundation for making this possible!
