Interested in Andover's history — everything from how the town was founded to learning about its most historic sites?

Here's a chance to get a taste of that history, while helping to preserve it.

The Andover Center For History and Culture will hold its fourth annual "Be Giving" fundraising gala next month.

The gala is from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 10, at the Andover Country Club, 65 Canterbury St., Andover.

The gala raises money to support community education, preservation and connections.

New treasures from the center's collection will be shared, while storytellers will entertain guests with stories from Andover history. A silent auction is also planned. Hors d'oeuvres, beer and wine will be available.

Tickets are $75 each through Sept. 30 and $90 each as of Oct. 1.
