Yearning to Breathe Free: The Immigrant Experience in Maine
April 14, 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM$10
Elizabeth Helitzer, Executive Director, Holocaust Human Rights Center, Augusta
David Greenham, Program Director HHRC
The story of immigrants in Maine is older than the state itself. From Verrazano’s first glimpse of Maine in 1524 on, immigrants have played a key role in shaping Maine and her people. This program, inspired by our 2015 exhibit of the same name, provides an overview of Maine’s immigrant past, and serves as a reminder of the important role that immigrants will play in our future.
Please register for this Friday lunch program no later than Wednesday April 12. Lunch will be catered by Jorgensen’s for $10. Please pay at the door.
Lunch includes soup, sandwich, coffee, tea and dessert. Please indicate your sandwich choice:
- Ham and Swiss with Lettuce and Tomato on Croissant
- Turkey and Cheddar with Lettuce and Tomato on wheat
- Hummus and Havarti on Spinach Wrap
Please note: Registrants who request lunch are responsible for lunch fees. If your plans change and you are unable to attend, please notify us so that lunch orders can be adjusted.
