The 2014 Penobscot County Genealogical Society Cookout
One of the most important benefits of belonging to a local genealogical society is the friendships and camaraderie that develops over time. This is visible at our monthly meetings, but it really shines at this less-formal get-together, especially where good food is served up! We shared many stories, many laughs and there was at least one new family connection made at this year's cookout. It was an evening of great weather and thanks to all that worked to bring this to a reality again this year.
