’19th Century Rangeley in 3-D’ comes back to RRG&SA this month

OQUOSSOC — The Rangeley Region Guides and Sportsman’s Association will host an encore presentation of “19th Century Rangeley 3D” on Thursday, Nov. 21, at the group’s monthly meeting.
The meeting will start with a potluck dinner at 5:30 p.m., at the club house, on Old Skiway Road in Oquossoc. Bill Pierce, of the Rangeley Lakes Historical Society, will narrate the unique show offering a collection of 19th century stereoview images of the region, including many never seen before in other renditions of the presentation. The meeting is free and open to the public.
Previous programs have been well-received and numerous vintage images of the region have been converted by the Historical Society to share with audiences, using modern 3D glasses, while Pierce shares related “lure and lore.”
“Our Historical Society enjoys a long-running partnership with the Guides & Sportsman’s Association, so we are looking forward to having some fun, enjoy some delicious home-cooking and share images from this great outdoor heritage both organizations proudly celebrate,” said Pierce.
The evening will also feature a short film, “Deer Park Chronicles,” produced by the Historical Society. The rare vintage motion picture film shares vignettes of camp life at Deer Park on Richardson Lake in the 1930s and includes canoe trips to Kennebago and Parmachenee.
