Help Us Save Roby Littlefield's WWI Trench Coat!

One of the dearest items in our museum (see photo) is a WWI trench coat that was worn in battle in France by one of Ogunquit's own, Roby Littlefield.  We recently made the unfortunate discovery that Roby's coat needs serious restoration work if it is to survive for future generations.  We've set up a GoFundMe page to raise funds for the restoration.  Even the smallest donation will help.  Please spread the word, and help us honor Roby's service and the sacrifices of all who have fought for our freedom.  Thank you!
