Maine History Maker Award Honoring the Cianchette Family

Oct 24, 2017 @ 5:00pm   Events, Member Events

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, Main 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. The program features: • Presentation of the Maine History Maker Award to Ken Cianchette by MHS executive director Steve Bromage. • Remarks by Mac Cianchette, “Cianbro: A Family Perspective” • Panel discussion on visions for the state’s future with Andrea Cianchette Maker, an attorney at Pierce Atwood whose practice supports Maine businesses and whose civic leadership focuses on ensuring that Maine’s economy will thrive in the future; Jason Cianchette, founder of Liquid Wireless and Huzzap, and focused on growing the digital economy here in Maine, and Michael Cianchette, business executive, former Chief Legal Counsel and Senior Advisor to Gov. Paul LePage, and Maine Turnpike Authority Member. 5:00 pm Reception: Wine, Beer, and Light Fare 6:00 pm Maine History Award Ceremony Location: Hannaford Hall at the University of Southern Maine 88 Bedford Street, Portland (free parking in USM garage) $50 General Admission
