ARCH receives grant from The Fabulous Find
The Association for Rollinsford Culture and History (ARCH) recently received a grant of $11,612.64 from The Fabulous Find, a nonprofit resale boutique in Kittery, Maine, to support programs and operations at Rollinsford’s historic Colonel Paul Wentworth House.
Each month, The Fabulous Find donates all profits from its sales to selected Seacoast area nonprofit organizations. Profits from its November sales were split between ARCH, Bedrock Gardens in Lee, and the Portsmouth Music Hall.
“We are thrilled to receive this grant from The Fabulous Find. For the past two years, we’ve been forced by the pandemic to cancel our annual fundraiser dinner and auction, and this grant will help us maintain the Wentworth House and fund our educational programs,” said ARCH board president Julia Roberts. “We are so grateful to The Fabulous Find, and to our many supporters who made this grant possible by donating items to The Fabulous Find and shopping there for the holidays.”
Located on Water Street in Rollinsford, the circa 1701 Wentworth House is maintained by ARCH as an educational and cultural center, and hosts exhibits, demonstrations, school programs, and living history events that educate visitors of all ages about the area’s rich history and heritage.
