UMaine Singers to Entertain at Margaret Chase Smith Event

Renaissance, a University of Maine female a cappella group, will sing at the Margaret Chase Smith Library Annual Community Appreciation Day 2–4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 15, at 56 Norridgewock Ave., Skowhegan.

There will be cake and refreshments at the celebration, which will also honor what would have been Smith’s 116th birthday. The former U.S. Senator was born Dec. 14, 1897 and died May 29, 1995.

The native of Skowhegan served more than four terms in the U.S. House of Representatives and 24 years in the U.S. Senate. She was first woman to serve in both houses of Congress and, in 1950 Smith delivered her “Declaration of Conscience” against McCarthyism.

The Margaret Chase Smith Library is owned by the Margaret Chase Smith Foundation and operated under its auspices by the University of Maine.
