From the Journal Tribune: “Interested in finding out more about local history in and around the Kennebunks? The first Historic Kennebunks Road Rally, planned for Sunday, is an opportunity to learn more while participating in a sort of drive–along scavenger hunt. Participants are encouraged to arrive in classic cars or sport cars, but if you don’t have one, you’re still welcome in your family jalopy.”
