The 2017 Old Home Week Photography Contest had 2 categories this year. First, there was the traditional anything "Orrington" category. The second category focused on photos of the Curran Farm.... from any season, any date, inside or outside!

There are two age divisions in each category: Adult (for ages 13 and over) and Youth (for ages 12 and under).

Judging was done on Thursday, July 13, 2017 by a panel of dignitaries from our local government, schools and organizations. Prizes were awarded for first, second and third places in each of the three categories. The winning photos were proudly displayed at the Library during Old Home Week (July 14-23) for all to admire!

Stay tuned for information about the 2018 Photo Contest!

SedgeunkeDUCK Regatta

On Sunday, July 15, the second annual SedgeukneDUCK Regatta will be held to benefit the Orrington Historical Society's missions. Bright yellow rubber duckies can be sponsored for just $10 each. The little critters race in the Sedgeunkedunk Stream from the dam to the Johnson Mill Road tunnel to the finish line. Fans can stay for burgers and hotdogs cooked on Bob's grill! Our neighbors in the Brewer Wastewater Treatment Plant assisted us in 2017 with this fun and informative event. All proceeds were donated to the Orrington Historical Society for the restoration of the Grange Hall.

For 2018

If your organization would like to host a bike race, baseball tournament, wiffle ball tourney, 5K road race, art show, shooring sports contest, quilt or hooked rug show, beard contest, pie contest or any competition where the "Best" are awarded, please let the OHW Committee know!
