Lincoln County Historical Association’s annual dinner and auction, Preservation Party, is set for Sunday, Sept. 10, at the Pownalborough Court House, 23 Court House Road in Dresden.

Cocktails begin at 4 p.m. with appetizers and music by jazz guitarists Neil Lamb and David Lawlor. After the catered three-course Italian dinner, auctioneer Kaja Veilleux of Thomaston Place Auction Galleries will offer an array of experiences, including a professional family portrait, two different trips to Italy, a cooking class/dinner for six, a fishing trip on Casco Bay, a dozen car washes, a theater package, a wine or beer tasting for six, and a gift basket of wines and cheeses.

Ann Light, Linda Pope, and Claudia Sortwell will demonstrate a “dance of desserts” to be sold to the highest bidder.

There will be a raffle of gift cards, including restaurants such as Bred ’n the Bone and Water Street Kitchen, an oyster farm tour, a family membership to Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens.

Proceeds from Preservation Party support the association’s mission to collect, preserve, and interpret the history of Lincoln County. Key to the work of the organization is the stewardship of three historic buildings: the 1761 Pownalborough Court House in Dresden, the 1811 Old Jail in Wiscasset, and the 1754 Chapman-Hall House in Damariscotta.
