The Mount Desert Island Historical Society will present its Sixth Annual Bean Supper at Mount Desert Island High School on Monday, Jan 23, from 6 to 8 pm. The Barn Family Band will provide the dinner music. After dinner, architectural historian Brad Emerson will examine shifting notions of place on Mount Desert Island in a slideshow and lecture titled “A Sense of Place: Changes and Constants.” Tickets will be sold only at the door – $10 for adults and $5 for children. Proceeds from the event will support history education programs at the Sound School House.
