In 2005, Tom Truitt published the first Monhegan Connections to help all of us in matching names with faces. Joanne Scott has granted the Monhegan Associates, Inc. full copyright privileges. Hopefully, the next edition will be available in the spring of 2016.

Perhaps we will capture your photo at a meeting or along the road but we’d also like to have your photos. Periodically, we will have someone on the church lawn for an hour once during the week to take photos. A sign will be posted regarding the date & time.

If you would like to assist in taking photos, please contact Eileen Cameron @ 594-8040 or by e-mail at mjdame38@comcast.net or Clare (clare@briegull.com).
