WISCASSET — An hand-crafted weather vane, created by Bryan Buck, is one of 12 items donated to be raffled off during the Wiscasset Library Bands for Books event set for 5 to 7 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 4, at Marianmade Farm, 155 Federal St.

Downeast Brass Quintet, with five Maine musicians and music educators, will play at the event. The quintet’s music includes a wide range of styles from classical to Dixieland. Guests can request music of their choosing and dancing is encouraged.

The Little Village Bistro will provide a cash bar and will donate hors d’oeuvres. Small tables will be set up on the lawns outside the barn where guests can sit and enjoy the food and drink.

Other raffle items include a certificate for art restoration or custom framing, a scenic boat ride, a plane ride over mid-coast Maine, floral arrangements delivered for several months, a large picnic basket filled to the brim with goodies and a case of wine.

Tickets to the event are $25 per person and can be purchased at the Wiscasset Library at 21 High St., in Wiscasset, or from committee members Wendy Ross, Judy Flanagan, Michelle Peele, Jenn Spaur, Linda Winterberg, Sally Gemmill and Kate Curran. Tickets also will be available at the event. Free parking is available in a large field at the event site.
