This quilt, by Betty Lu Brydges, will be raffled to raise funds in order to replace the 70 year old foot bridge that spans the pools of the Fish Ladder. Three of the squares are designs by John Whalley, and the others show houses of Damariscotta Mills, St Patricks Church and birds at the Fish Ladder. The quilt can be viewed at the Skidompha Public Library on Main Street in Damariscotta from February 17 until August 31.
700 raffle tickets will be available. The winning ticket will be drawn at the Nobleboro Historical Society on Labor Day, Monday September 5. If not present at the drawing, the quilt will be shipped to the winner.
