Source: Jean Lawrence Morse's Sauerkraut House will be the subject of a historical program Oct. 20.

Waldoboro — Waldoborough Historical Society will present “A Salute to Morse’s Sauerkraut”  Sunday, Oct. 20, at 1 p.m. A staff member will be available to update the changes in Morse's offerings, one of Waldoboro’s oldest businesses, and to offer to all attending a taste of sauerkraut, one of the mainstays in the diet of the early German settlers of Waldoboro. The refurbished Morse’s Tractor will be on hand for viewing and photos. All buildings in the museum, 1164 Main St., will open at noon and remain open until 3 p.m. This is the final “official” program for the season. The public is welcome and there will be no admission charge for the museum.

The society will honor all veterans at a brief remembrance moment for Veterans’ Day Sunday, Nov. 10, at 10:45 a.m. outdoors on the museum grounds near the Revere Bell. The bell will be tolled in memory of the Nov. 11, 1918, armistice and in honor of all veterans of our country’s battles for freedom. Veterans, young people and citizens are invited to share in pulling the rope that tolls the bell.

The last gathering of the year at the museum will take place Sunday, Dec. 1, when the society will host a Holiday Open House from 1 to 4 p.m. Special Christmas exhibits will be on display, mulled cider and goodies will be shared, Dana Davis will perform carols on his guitar, and a tree with antique/old ornaments will be on view. Anyone who has old Christmas ornaments that they would like to donate for this celebration may contact Bill Maxwell at 790-1307.
