THE TURN OF THE SCREW (Sun. 26 Oct, 2014 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm)

  Ten Bucks Theatre Company invites you to experience THE TURN OF THE SCREW By Jeffrey Hatcher from the novel by Henry James Directed by Ben Layman      

A chill is in the air . . . the leaves are turning . . . and the unmistakable melancholy energy of Autumn inspires Ten Bucks' next offering, THE TURN OF THE SCREW.      

Ten Bucks Theatre is gearing up to present this classic tale of terror just in time for the Halloween season! The Victorian era thriller starring Jesse McCormick and Melissa Burkart tells the tale of a young governess who arrives at an isolated English manor to care for two recently orphaned children. Soon, she begins to see two mysterious spirits haunting the children. She struggles to maintain her sanity while finding a way to save the children from the clutches of the evil apparitions.      

THE TURN OF THE SCREW will be performed at the Eddington/Clifton Civic Center (1347 Main Rd., Rt. 9) Oct 24, 25, 31 and Nov 1 at 7pm and Oct 26 and Nov 2 at 2pm. All tickets are $10.00 (cash or checks, only). Box office in the Hall opens 1 hour prior to show times.  

There will be a special presentation of Maine based ghost stories before the show on Oct 31st and Nov 1st. (Curtain time for these dates remains 7pm)       The Bangor Public Library invites those who'd like to delve deeper with the text and enhance their viewing to attend their play group's reading and discussion of THE TURN OF THE SCREW on Tuesday, October 21 and Saturday, October 25.

Hunter's Breakfast (Sat. 1 Nov, 2014 4:00 am - 8:00 am)

The 64th annual Old Town Rotary Club Hunters Breakfast will be held, as always, on the first day of the deer hunting season, Saturday, November 1, from 4 a.m. to 8 a.m. at the Waterfront Park in downtown Old Town. 
    More than 600 people of all ages--hunters and non-hunters alike--are expected to enjoy the breakfast, which includes pancakes, eggs, ham, home fries, beans, donuts, coffee, and hot chocolate. The cost is $5 for adults, $2.50 for children under 12, and $15 for familes.
    People say that going to the Old Town Rotary’s Hunter’s Breakfast is like going home.
    The men and women of the group welcome everyone—hunters, families, children, retirees, college students—basically, anyone who wants a good meal at a great price. After all, the breakfast itself isn’t a big fund-raiser for Rotary, it’s more of a tradition. It’s a time for Rotar­ians to enjoy fellowship amongst themselves and the community.
    There is no better way to say “Welcome”, than with food.
    Lots and lots of food.  The Rotarians prepare buckets and buckets of scrambled eggs, along with several cases of ham. At one point, the club bought the ham unsliced; in recent years, they decided to splurge a bit and purchase it pre-sliced to save prep-time. Pretty ingenious.
    If ham and eggs aren’t enough to satisfy any hunter, throw in four industrial-size boxes of pancake mix, four industrial-size containers of hot chocolate, and, according to long-time Rotarian Sandy Morin, “a bazillion pots of coffee.”
    So, the menu consists of  ham, eggs, pancakes, coffee, hot chocolate. But breakfast in the northeast wouldn’t be breakfast without potatoes. Potato duty is usually Shawn Small’s job, he’s in charge of making sure the 150 pounds of spuds are just right. Too mushy and we have a failure.
    For many years, Eloise McLaugh­lin and the Alton Methodist Church have been gracious enough to provide baked beans. Since Mainers are picky about their beans, when you stand in the chow line, you’ll hear, “Beans? Big beans or little beans?” Now, there’s a Question of the Week for the local newspaper.
    As you could imagine, there’s a lot of prep time and effort for all of this food. This is a big event, and rain or shine, people have counted on it happening for 64 years.
    It all starts well before opening day. LaBree’s Donuts chips in with 6 cases of donuts. General Rental Center in Old Town lends a big hand by helping set up tents with walls to make the event weather-proof.
    Around noon on the Friday before Opening Day (the first day of the deer hunting season), Rotarians start buzzing around the waterfront park in downtown Old Town. The tents are erected, stoves are set up and leveled, lights are put in place, wood for the can-fire is delivered and club members start prepping for their 24-hour food marathon.
    In recent years, the Rotaract Club at the University of Maine has helped tremendously. These young folks have fit right in, helping in what is touted as the Rotary’s biggest event of the year.
    Coming together as one precise unit, everyone chips in making sure everything is in order. As the day progresses to night, and the first morning of the rifle season arrives, there’s hot coffee, good food and fellowship, which everyone has learned to expect from Old Town Rotary.

They will be giving the children all toothbrushes and for every child toothbrush we donate, they will also be donating one to the troops. All of the candy gets sent to Operation Gratitude in California and they take care of sending it overseas. There will also be note-cards for the kids to write little notes to the troops to try and improve the spirits of our men and women overseas.
