Event description

Description

Please join us at Mechanics' Hall on Wed. Oct. 10th at 7pm when Maine State Historian Earle Shettleworth will lecture on the untold story of Hall architect Thomas Sparrow. The title of Shettleworth's talk is "Buildings for All Times and Seasons: The Work of Thomas J. Sparrow, Portland’s First Professional Architect".

This is a ticketed event to benefit a new era of the Maine Charitable Mechanic Association. MCMA was founded in 1815 to serve skilled tradesmen, artisans and their apprentices. Ticket sales will contribute seed money towards retaining an executive director who will sustain the work of our current mission to inspire and enrich the community by promoting ingenuity, creativity, innovation, and the diffusion of useful knowledge. Our library, programming, classes and events held in our historic building, Mechanics' Hall, support this objective. Today’s “mechanics” are the innovators, inventors, trades people, and artisans that reside in our community. They are building a society that is creative, collaborative, skilled, and entrepreneurial. Mechanics' Hall is their gathering space for connecting, learning, and social enjoyment.

The event will take place in the Grand Ballroom at 519 Congress Street (across from MECA and Portland Media Center). Visuals to accompany. Refreshments will be available. Doors will open at 6:30pm.

Thank you to our generous sponsors! The Earle Shettleworth lecture is made possible by the United Assoc. of Journeyman and Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipe Fitting Industry Local 716 Chapter, the New England Mechanical Contractors Assoc., Cianbro Corp., Cyrus and Patricia Hagge, and many other community sponsors and patrons.
