THOMASTON — Thomaston resident Will Cummings is continuing the historic plaque project that he has been working on for more than two years. This past month, Mr. Cummings gave a presentation to the Thomaston Rotary Club to explain his project. His idea came from a trip he took to St. Andrews in New Brunswick, Canada.
