On Thursday, those in the River Valley Unit were busy as they visited the Mexico Historical Society on Oxford Street in Mexico, the Lufkin Museum, home of the Rumford Historical Society in Rumford Center, and then watched the documentary movie, “The Don,” a cabin cruiser Don with 35 aboard that went down in lower Casco Bay after an explosion in June of 1941. Most of the party lived in Rumford and adjacent Mexico. One of the highlights when visiting the Lufkin Museum was a talk from Bill Weston, 90, a charter member of the Rumford Historical Society.
