Donald Duncan will reprise last summer’s talk at the Hendricks Hill Museum on the use, storage and harvesting of ice in the 1800s and early 1900s when thousands of tons of ice were cut on Maine’s ponds and rivers. The crop was shipped worldwide from Boothbay to Singapore. We have a good collection of the tools used and a short video of the process of cutting and storing ice. The talk, at 1:30 p.m., is limited to 15 participants, call the museum, 633-1102, to register. The Hendricks Hill Museum is located at 419 Hendricks Hill Rd., Southport, Maine.
