Honoring Jeanette (Spinney) Paul
Please join us for this very special meeting as we honor our late friend Jeanette Paul. We welcome you to come and share your own memories and pictures of Jeanette.
Born in Eliot on January 5, 1923 Jeanette was a daughter of Advil and Elsie (Wood) Spinney and attended local schools. In 1941 she married Francis D. Paul built a home on Pleasant Street where they raised their five children – Sharon, Joan, Harry, Debby and Pam. Her roots were part of the history of Eliot – as a member of the Spinney family as well as her husband’s Paul family, two of Eliot’s first settlers.
Jeannette was always ready to help in whatever way she could to further the goals of the Historical Society. Deeply committed to the education of our town’s children she worked with Eleanor Zamarchi in the production of the book “The Schools of Eliot”; served for many years on the board of the Friends of the #8 Schoolhouse as it planned the initial fundraisers and developed the plans for the schoolhouse restoration and subsequent use and served for many years as our greeter and teacherat the Schoolhouse during annual visits by elementary school children.
The meeting will be held at the John F. Hill Grange Hall, State Road and begins at 7 PM. All are welcome. Refreshments will be served. For more information call 439-2404.
