Rockland — As part of the Festival of Lights Saturday, Nov. 30, the Rockland Historical Society invites the public to a Holiday Open House from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Historical Society on the lower level of the Rockland Public Library, 80 Union Street. Come see the Christmas lights and the Christmas tree donated by Maritime Energy and decorated with maritime ornaments – sailboats, lobster boats, lobster buoys, seashells, garlands of tiny nautical flags spelling “Merry Christmas,” and a lobster on top. Visitors can enjoy delicious homemade cookies and hot chocolate.

The society’s many historical books can be made as Maine-centered holiday gifts. Author John Bird will be signing his new history, "Rockland, Maine: Rise and Renewal"; and Ben Perry will be selling some of his popular novels and his book of whimseys, titled "Lime City Humor."
