“The Wizard of Oz” was released 80 years ago in 1939. In honor of this anniversary, Hamilton Meserve, Southport resident and son of Margaret Hamilton, will speak at the Southport Town Hall at 7 p.m. Ham will talk about the classic film, his mother’s career and role as the Wicked Witch of the West; her love for Maine, and the family’s history with the “Witch’s House” on Cape Island at the southern tip of Southport. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions. The Southport Town Hall is located at 361 Hendricks Hill Road, Southport. The program is sponsored by the Southport Island Association and is free and open to the public.
