Maine Historical Society honors community leaders Severin Beliveau and Harold Pachios for their dedicated contributions to Maine, and the inclusivity they helped usher into the state’s civic leadership over the past 50 years. Severin and Harold grew up in Franco and Greek Maine families when discrimination against immigrants, Catholics, and other ethnic groups was rampant. Their hard work and personal examples helped open doors to broad civic participation in Maine by immigrants and diverse communities.

This special evening will celebrate the storied Maine roots of Severin and Harold, their establishment of Preti Flaherty as one of the state’s most prominent law firms, and their advocacy for Maine people in local and national politics. The program will also introduce an emerging generation of new Mainers who follow in their footsteps.

FMI and to order tickets: $65 per person includes reception with open bar, hors d’oeuvres, and program along with follow-up digital package. Package contains professionally produced event video with documentaries, interviews, entertainment, and bonus features.
