Loss of revenue due to the cancellation of several of our fund raising events in 2021-22 had an impact on our finances but we felt the value of your health was of the utmost importance. With the promise of brighter days ahead, we will look forward to 2023 season when we are able to be assured of a safer environment to resume our role of welcoming you to visit the Patten Lumbermen’s Museum and of your support of our mission through your admission, generous donations, memberships and support of events like Fiddlers and Fiddlehead Fest and the Bean Hole Bean Dinner in 2023.
