Waldoboro — The Republican Women's Forum is sponsoring a free “Town & Country Conversations” series of six 30-minute films. Screenings are Tuesdays, July 17 through Aug. 21, at 6:30 p.m. at the National Library of Health & Healing Center, 181 Jefferson St. (in the American Legion Hall building).

The films, designed to give voice to people in the community, focus on a number of citizens in Lincoln County who talk about matters that affect their everyday lives.

Jeffrey Pierce, R-Dresden, and George Greene; “Writer Joseph Loughlin's book ‘Shots Fired’”; “Health & Care” with David Printy on the costs of health care and Juliette Cohen of Above & Beyond Scheduling, Boothbay, on home care and services; and “Property Taxes” with Stuart Smith of Saquin Software.

Bruce Poland plans to distribute the “American Legion Post #42 History” film to all posts in Maine during the Legion’s 100th anniversary celebrations. Other venues are being explored for viewing this film series.

A question and answer period follows each screening, and refreshments will be served. All are invited to attend this free film series and share their own stories of life, liberty and the pursuit of ideals here in the local community.
