Welcome

boothbay region historical society scholarship

To further our educational mission we are instituting a Boothbay Region Historical Society college scholarship of $1000 which will be awarded to a Boothbay Region High School student this spring.  We have raised $650.  Would you like to help us reach our goal?  These are difficult times, and it has been especially hard on students and their families.  You can mail a check to us, stipulating the purpose, and all contribution amounts are most welcome.
