Orford Parish Ephemera Collection

Courtesy of friend-O-the-Parish Raymond Majerski, here’s a selection of buttons that illustrate various aspects of our town’s storied history: the brief time in the early 1960s when the town government was controlled by a political party consisting of sentient bears (or, as opponents charged, humans dressed as bears); the town motto “We’re Closer Than You Think!”; and Orford Parish’s historically fraught relationship with the Society of Friends. Thank you, Ray. These are awesome!
