On Saturday, July 8, from 5 p.m. until sold out, an outdoor, old-fashioned "Bean Hole Supper with Music" is planned on the lawns of the Camden-Rockport Historical Society's Conway House and Museum. Look for the supper sign at the driveway off Route 1, located just south of the Hannaford shopping plaza in Camden. A musical trio will entertain diners with folk and country selections played under the trees.

The bean-hole beans are snugly baked in a kettle on coals and embers in the ground, upholding an old Maine way of cooking. Also featured are hot dogs, coleslaw, biscuits and butter, beverages and pies from the Pie Table. Tickets are available on site, without advance reservation.

This year's sponsor for the event is "Maine Street Meats," located in the State of Maine Cheese building and they are providing biscuits for the dinner. Should it rain, the meals will be available for "stop by-pick up" purchase to take home.

According to Society president Brenda Barrett, latest improvements at the Conway complex include a new roofing system on the Conway House and a re-roofing of the Museum, thanks to a grant from the Davis Foundation. An exhibit on World War I is a summer focus at the Museum. For information call 706-6229.
