Camden-Rockport Historical Society will host its final public supper for the season Saturday, Sept. 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 society's historic Conway House complex, on Route 1 just south of Hannaford in Camden.

The supper starts at 5 p.m. and will continue until the beans run out. The price of the ticket includes beans, a hot dog, coleslaw, biscuits with real butter, and a pickle or two, plus an iced drink or coffee, as well as servings from the table of homemade desserts.

The cost is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and members, and $5 for children age 6 to 12 (no charge for children under 6). Those who become a new member of the historical society that evening receive one free meal.
