Rosey Gerry, local historian and Renaissance man, will be the featured speaker at the Thomaston Historical Society's (THS) program on Tuesday, May 11, at 7 p.m. at the Knox Farmhouse, 80 Knox Street, Thomaston. The meeting is free and open to the public.

Gerry will present an illustrated talk on historic old roads in the Lincolnville area. He says, "It seems that all my life I've been finding a path or old road that leads to some interesting adventure." Gerry's family has been in Maine since the 18th century. He spent most of his growing-up years in Lincolnville, and he has always been interested in local and Maine history.

Gerry's a familiar auctioneer at fund-raisers for good causes. He has presented educational programs at the Owls Head Transportation Museum, has written, directed, and acted in several humorous plays, performs weddings, presides at funerals, runs an antique-auto restoration business, does land clearing and excavation, and is involved in Lincolnville town government.

The session will begin with refreshments at 7:00, followed by a brief business meeting at 7:30, and culminating with Gerry's presentation at 7:40.
