DRESDEN — Lincoln County Historical Association’s annual benefit dinner and auction is scheduled to be held on the grounds of the historic Pownalborough Court House, Cedar Grove Road, from 4-6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 18.

Anyone interested in supporting the association’s mission to collect, preserve and interpret the history of Lincoln County is invited to attend.

Preservation Party is a new name for the benefit, which was previously called Kermess. “We decided to change the name to one that more accurately expresses our goals for the event,” said Executive Director Shannon Gilmore, in a news release from the association.

Over the years, the auction of cakes and the auction of experiences have become highlights of the evening. Bidders also can choose experiences that include a fishing trip for four, a cooking class, complete car detailing, a cruise on an historic schooner, an overnight package in Portland, a dozen car washes, customized history research, and in-home computer help.
