2017 Maine History Maker: Cianchette family, Oct 24
Each year Maine Historical Society recognizes traditions of innovation, leadership, and commitment to community that have defined Maine throughout its history. This year, Maine Historical Society has selected the Cianchette family as its 2017 Maine History Maker!

The award honors the direct descendants of Ralph and Edna Cianchette—their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. 100 years of Cianchette family history reflects essential aspects of the Maine experience—Ralph's immigration to Maine, his sons' service during World War II, and the brothers' hustle and acumen in building Cianbro, Maine Line Fence and other businesses.

Now, in this century, we see the many ways in which their children and grandchildren continue to lead in diverse endeavors. Cianchette leadership—past, present, and future—is what we honor.

At Maine Historical Society, Portland, Oct 24, 5 pm.
