The Preston Historical Society is at 167 Main St. in Preston.

PRESTON — A reunion of former Preston Trucking Company employees is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, July 27, at Preston Historical Society and Museum, 167 Main St.

The museum maintains a permanent display dedicated to Preston Trucking Company and the people who were part of its story. The last reunion was held in September 2016.

The event is free, and light refreshments will be served. For more information, call organizer Diane Engle at 410-829-9078.

August will be a busy month at society, with two ribbon cuttings and an ice cream social beginning at 10 a.m Saturday, Aug. 10. Thanks to the generosity of the community and their donated items, the museum has expanded both up and out.

The ribbon cuttings will open up the second floor of the museum to visitors, featuring three bedrooms with period furnishings.

The museum is expanding to the large storage building on the property, which will become the agriculture building, housing tractors and other farming equipment and memorabilia.

The ribbon cuttings and social will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Free ice cream will be served, and a bake sale table will offer sweets for purchase.

Memories of Linchester Pond will be the topic of a presentation by Roger Layton at the membership meeting of the society on Monday, Aug. 19. The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. and is open to the public.
