EPIC Maine: Exploring Pathways to Industries & Careers in Maine
(Thu. 24 Apr, 2014 10:00 am - 3:00 pm)

EPICMaine is a unique career exploration event for 16-24 year-olds. What does that mean? Instead of bringing resumes and "interviewing" with HR folks, attendees will be talking to front-line workers -- the ones that do the job. Alongside the workers will be EMCC (Eastern Maine Community College) students and faculty. This way, young people who may be unsure of what they want to be when they grow up can gain valuable information on the pros and cons of a career they're interested in pursuing as well as the education they would need. Also onsite will be counselors -- career and financial -- to help those young people chart a course toward their chosen career. What's the result? Attendees will walk away being able to make informed decisions about their futures! www.epicmaine.net  

Shea Hillenbrand Baseball Clinic presented by Dove Tail Bats and Hermon Cub Scouts Pack 25

Dove Tail Bat Co. and Hermon Cub Scout Pack 25 are proud to announce a baseball clinic on April 24, 2014, from 6-9 p.m. at the Bangor Parks & Rec Gym, 647 Main St, Bangor.  This clinic is open to all Little League and AAU baseball players ages 8-13 in the greater Bangor area. The clinic is being put on by Maine baseball bat company Dove Tail Bat Co, and run by former Major League Baseball All-Star, Shea Hillenbrand, who spent 7 years in the Majors. Shea had a career .284 avg., with 108 homeruns, and was voted to the MLB All-Star game twice. He played from 2001 to 2007 with the Boston Red Sox, Arizona Diamondback, Toronto Blue Jays, San Francisco Giants, Los Angeles Angels, and Los Angeles Dodgers. Shea will be bringing his professional approach to hitting, pitchng, and catching to share with your player(s). He will be working on fundamentals to help ready your player(s) for the upcoming baseball season. Shea's clinics are in great demand, and his schedule is full, so we are lucky we were able to bring him to Bangor. Shea will be bringing his own merchadise to sell and autograph, but will also autograph items brought in by players. Dove Tail Bat Co. is also offering a discounted sale on bats for your player(s) if you want to preorder any for the clinic. They are offering DTB Model DT71, a Little League bat, in maple, with your player’s name on it. Regular price is $55.95 plus $15 shipping (total $70.95), but for this clinic the price is $50 and Dove Tail will be giving $10 from each bat to Pack 25. Use code: SCOUTS when checking out at www.dovetailbat.com. The cost is $20 per player that has a reservation or $25 per player for non-reservation. To reserve a spot for your player(s), or for directions to the facility, please contact Amy Gould, Cub Master, Pack 25, at: [email protected] This clinic is being used as a fundraiser for Pack 25's planned trip to Boston this summer, a trip that includes a tour of "America's most beloved ballpark," Fenway Park, and a Major League game between the Boston Red Sox and Kansas City Royals

The Mallett Brothers Band
(Sat. 26 Apr, 2014 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm)

The Mallett Brothers Band will take the stage on Saturday, April 26th, 7:30pm at the Brewer Performing Arts Center located at 92 Pendleton Street in Brewer. The Mallett Brothers Band was named best band in New England, and received best album in New England for "LAND" at the New England Music Awards this year. The Mallett Brothers Band is an alt-country/rock band from Portland, Maine. Slightly more rock than country, theirs is a musical melting pot that's influenced equally by the folk and singer/songwriter influence of brothers Luke and Will's dad David Mallett - himself a noted musician - as by the harder rock, punk and even psychedelic influences of the other band members. Brian Higgins on drums, Nick Leen on bass, Wally on dobro and electric guitar and Nate Soule on electric and acoustic guitars and mandolin. It's song-driven music that holds up under the lens of solitary listening, but that's equally apt to crank a room full of rockers into whiskey-fueled high gear. Since forming in 2009, they've released three full length albums and toured the country extensively, providing support for acts ranging from The Josh Abbot Band, Blackberry Smoke,  Charlie Robison, and the Turnpike Troubadours, to .38 Special, Toby Keith, Chris Caigle, and Travis Tritt. They have also appeared on stage in a huge range of clubs from Maine to Texas, including the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville and the famed Continental Club in Austin.  Tickets for the show are $15 in advance and $20 the day of the show. Tickets may be purchased online at www.brewerperformingarts.com or by calling 207 200-5447. Box office opens 90 minutes before the show.
