We found this “Promotion to the High School” – I love that wording! – certificate for Lawrence Worden in a recent clean out, and want to find a relative or descendant of young master Worden or either of the two gentlemen who signed the document, and who would like to have it. As the photo above shows, the certificate is signed by Philip Sugg (teacher) and R G Oakes (the Superintendent of Schools), and dated June 1929,
Condition: It’s in reasonably good shape for an 88 year old document!
Price: Free to a family member/descendant of Lawrence Worden (the student) or Philip Sugg (teacher) or R G Oakes (the Superintendent of Schools). Otherwise, $10.00 (plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax, of course!).
Please be prepared to provide some sort of proof as documents such as this are often sought after by collectors (although such collectors rarely pay more than a very few dollars unless the signature is of someone wicked important).
NOTE: Now that we’ve downsized at our main location, our new entrance is at the back of the building! You’ll see some signs in the windows saying “Heritage Collectibles”, “Retail Shop” and “Welcome”!

Thank you to everyone who has supported us for the past three years!
In memory of my beloved husband John K Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.
He loved our shops, especially the section we called Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera – that was his baby.
He loved me like crazy, and oh how I loved him.
Follow our blog at https://warrior-project.org, in honor of my husband, and all others who have been lost to internal demons that in the end, overwhelmed them.
All of the profits after expenses from Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps will go to help fund The (Grief) Warrior Project, a suicide prevention drop-in and counseling center in the process of being developed.
[Please Note: The (Grief) Warrior Project is in no way intended to be reflective of, or piggy back off, Wounded Warriors which serves those military personnel wounded after September 11, 20o1. Like too many others, John was a warrior long before then.]
