The Curran Homestead Living History Farm & Museum's Dinner Buffet Fundraiser on Monday, November 9 at Oriental Jade Restaurant. The public is invited

The Curran Homestead volunteers will be the wait-staff for the evening. The buffet features a large selection of both Oriental and American food choices. The proceeds will benefit the living history farm and museum's restoration and education projects.

Advance reservations can be made by Friday, November 6 by calling 745-4426 or tickets may be purchased at the Oriental Jade on Monday evening. Tickets are limited for the two seatings at 5:15pm and 6:00pm. The cost for the "all you can eat buffet" is $14.00 for adults and $7.00 children (12 and under.) There will be one door prize drawing at each seating.

Clyde Folsom, who was born and raised in Millinocket, has entertained numerous audiences throughout Maine and New England. He says he started telling stories in third grade when he found it necessary to explain to his teachers about why his homework was never done. Telling stories came easy for him then, and he's been perfecting the art ever since. Many of the stories Clyde tells are entirely original, drawing on a lifetime of experiences as a "Mainer" and his uncanny ability to lie with credibility. He spent most of his professional career as a counselor at the University of Maine's Counseling Center where he was employed for thirty-one years.

Attendees will also have the opportunity meet and greet Andy Prusaitis who will discuss his recently completed Eagle Scout Project of renovating the Curran equipment shed, and representatives of the Fields Pond Blacksmithing Association will update guests on the newly constructed education and demonstration center and plans for the future.
