Lubec Town Sign -The Historical Society is the custodian of the "Welcome To Lubec" sign. To protec the sign it is kept at our building over the winter and hung back out in early may. This year we need to do repairs on the sign which will be done at our building in early spring. As the weather warms we will also paint the posts for the sign and kiosk before putting the sign out for the season w/our flags.
