Retired Town Clerk, Ellen Gaboury, will give a presentation on “The Congregational Church and Town Government”. This talk will explore the history of the town meeting form of government so commonly found in New England. This form of government can trace it roots back to the early days of Congregationalism in New England.
Gaboury served as Auburn’s Town Clerk for 13 years, before retiring this past May. Prior to that, she was the assistant town clerk for 8 years. Through her research and experience, Gaboury has prepared a fascinating program which she has delivered at several area organizations in the past. Auburn itself uses a representative town meeting form of government, and with the Fall Town Meeting just around the corner, the timing of Gaboury’s presentation could not be better.
The Auburn Historical Society meeting will be held Tuesday, October 20, at 6:30 pm at the Auburn Senior Center, 4 Goddard Dr. in Auburn. Refreshments will be served and the public is welcomed and encouraged to attend.
