The entire board of directors of the Readfield Union Meeting House wants to thank all the voters in Readfield who voted last month to appropriate $5,000 to aid in the continued restoration of this historic landmark. The recognition by the town elected officials in putting this article on the warrant and then seeing it so well supported by the community shows a recognition that not only is the Meeting House the most beautiful building in town, but that, once the restoration is completed, it can again become the most pleasing venue for all types of community events as it was in the past.

The enthusiasm shown by the Readfield third-grade students during their recent visit demonstrates that even at an early age young boys and girls are interested in their local history and that they recognize that the Meeting House’s beautiful murals place in a very different category than any other structure in town.

To now see — by the recent vote — that others also feel the same way gives the board the confidence to move forward. Thank you all.
