This year, the Chebeague Island Historical Society has assumed publication of the Annual Newsletter from the Island Council on a trial basis -- a trial to see if the Historical Society can carry on the fine publication tradition established by the Council, and a trial to see if the Council might wish to resume publication at some later date.

The Historical Society has decided to streamline the production of the Annual Newsletter by not soliciting or accepting advertising, and by distributing the finished product only by sale at the Island Market, thereby saving mailing costs.

In addition, the Annual Newsletter is available on the Internet for the first time, including some material not included in the printed edition. The address to visit is:

The old photograph of the District No. 9 schoolhouse on the cover of this 1998 Annual Newsletter shows a building that is very different from the way it is today. A garage door has replaced a window, the belfry was removed, and a garage wing has been added. But this represents the Historical Society's vision of how the building might look in the future, much as it looked in the past. Inside that building, we hope to create a cultural heritage center for Chebeague Island.

We've begun that project by making the building "tight to the weather," with a new roof, replaced windows and other repairs necessary to preserve the building.

Within the next year or two, the Historical Society will be embarking on a capital campaign to make our larger vision a reality. In the meantime, donations toward this ambitious effort will be accepted with great appreciation.

Our thanks to all the contributing Island organizations, and we hope you enjoy our 1998 Annual Newsletter.
