WA of ME HISTORY 

The Wing Assembly of Maine first met on on October 3, 1987. Elwood and Beatrice Wing, Freda Wing Kelley, and Glenn Wing organized the group. The first meeting of the Assembly was held at the Torsey Methodist Church in Kents Hill, Maine, and had over 60 people in attendance.

The Assembly was called W.A.R.M. in 1990. This stood for “Wing Assembly Representing Maine”. It might have been called that because the meeting the previous fall had been held in a building that had no heat. Everyone about froze and they are still talking about that meeting today. Later, the name was shortened to Wing Assembly of Maine.

Our meetings/ reunions are open to descendants of any of the sons of Rev. John and Deborah Wing, originally from England. We don’t collect dues or issue membership cards. Instead, we “pass the hat” at the annual meetings and accept donations that help pay for reunions and keep our projects going.

WA of ME Historian, 1999 -- 2012


MEETINGS

The Wing Assembly of Maine meets once a year for a reunion, held in a different Maine location each year. The day begins with coffee, pastries and social time, followed by a business meeting and lunch. The gathering concludes with an activity, such as a visit to a site connected with the Wing family, or a tour of a local attraction.

Meetings are held in October, on the first Saturday following the Columbus Day weekend.

WA of ME NEWS

    Thirty-four Mainers gathered in Farmington in October, 2016 for the annual reunion of the Wing Assembly of Maine. After lunch, Kenny Wing -- a member of the Wing Assembly and co-author of the book Lost Villages of Flagstaff Lake -- with his co-author Alan Burnell, presented a slide show about the Dead River Valley towns that were flooded to create Flagstaff Lake. Many Wings, including some in the audience, had once lived in one of the three villages that no longer exist. The program was interesting, informative, and much appreciated by all who attended.
