Old fashioned bean-hole bean supper
Rockport — The Camden-Rockport Historical Society will host its first public supper of the season Saturday, June 14, at 5 p.m. featuring beans cooked by Maynard Stanley Jr. the old-fashioned way — in a hole in the ground.
The supper will be held at the historic Conway House complex on Route 1 just south of the Hannaford store at the Camden-Rockport town line.
Entertainment will be provided by Miners Creek Bluegrass Band for all four of the season's suppers.
The supper will start at 5 p.m. and will continue until the beans — Maine yellow-eyed beans cooked underground — run out. The price of the ticket includes beans, a Kirshner hot dog, homemade coleslaw, biscuits with real butter, a pickle or two, plus an iced drink or coffee, as well as a selection from the table of homemade pies.
The cost is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and members, and $5 for children age 6 to 12 (no charge for under 6). Those who become new members of C-RHS will receive one free meal.
All proceeds from the supper will be dedicated to the building repair fund.
C-RHS will be hosting additional bean suppers July 12, Aug. 9, and Sept. 13.
The historical society complex is now open for the season Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, from 1 to 4 p.m.
