Two Hundred Years of the Academy: Thornton Academy Bicentennial Exhibition

Two Hundred Years of the Academy: Thornton Academy Bicentennial Exhibition

A special exhibition presented simultaneously at the Dyer Library and Saco museum this fall will be presented in conjunction with the bicentennial celebrations of Thornton Academy. Exploring tradition, mission and history, 200 Years of the Academy celebrates Thornton Academy's place in local history and the nation during the school's Bicentennial year. The exhibition will open with a special preview reception (in conjunction with the opening for concurrent Saco Museum exhibitions Drawn from the River and Christy Bergland: Late Seasons of Great Pond) on Wednesday, September 14 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The reception, held at the Saco Museum, is FREE and open to the public; members of Thornton Academy's community are especially welcomed.

MODIFIED DOWNEASTER SERVICE PLANNED FOR MONDAY, August 29

 

MONDAY, August 29, 2011: Because the impacts of Irene likely won't be known until the storm has passed and the railroad has been inspected and cleared to resume train operations, a limited bus schedule has been put into place to serve Downeaster passengers on Monday morning. 

Bus transportation operating on the schedule of Trains 680, 681, 682 and 683 will be available between these stations only:

· Portland Transportation Center, the Wells Transportation Center and Boston North Station. 

Exeter, NH Train Station and Boston North Station.  
No morning service will be provided to or between the following stations: Old Orchard Beach, Saco, Dover, Durham, Haverhill, Woburn.

We are hopeful that Amtrak Downeaster TRAINS will be able to operate on a full schedule beginning on Monday afternoon.  Trains 684, 685, 686, 687, 688 and 689 are expected to operate as usual serving all stations.   Please visit
