This year the Waterville Sunrise Rotary is proud to honor two individuals, Fran Purnell and Joanne Booth.   The Waterville Sunrise Rotary Club is a group of people who believe in “Service Above Self”. Each year we work on projects to better our community, improve conditions globally and eradicate polio around the world. Along the way have a little bit of fun and enjoy the satisfaction of helping our communities. All we need are a few more like minded folks to help out. Would you like to join us?

Summer Reading Kick-Off Party!- Southwest Harbor
(Thu. 7 Jun, 2018 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm)

Summer Reading Kick-Off Party!

Southwest Harbor - The Southwest Harbor Public Library will host their annual Summer Reading Kick-Off Party on Thursday evening, June 7, at 6:30 pm. The evening will include refreshments, the opportunity to sign up for Summer Reading programs, and an exclusive film screening of “Thoughts on Books,” a collection of filmed book reviews created by the Pemetic Elementary School fourth grade class.

The Library is proud to continue its three popular summer programs for young people this year -- Summer Reading, where children journal about their books and receive prizes; Summer Story Camp, a free, half-day literacy camp for children entering grades 1-5; and Summer Reading Showtime, where young people can sign up to turn their favorite books into short films with the help of the Barn Arts Collective. Interested participants can learn more and sign up for these programs at the Kick-Off Party.

For the third year, “Thoughts on Books,” will be the center of the evening’s entertainment. Pemetic fourth graders have been working with their teacher, Kim Schroeder, to develop book recommendations for summer readers. The Barn Arts Collective helped coach the kids and filmed their final presentations, which will be screened at the Kick-Off Party. The books chosen by the fourth graders will also be showcased on a special shelf in the Library’s young adult room to serve as recommendations all summer long. The project is funded by a grant from the Catherine Johnson Fund.

Schools and Libraries agree that reading all summer is critical to prevent the “summer slide” or loss of literacy skills over the summer. It’s an exciting time of year when school ends and summer reading programs begin. For more information, visit the Library’s website at www.swhplibrary.org or call 207-244-7065.

Summer Tai Chi Classes Offered
(Wed. 13 Jun, 2018 10:30 am - 11:30 am)

Summer Tai Chi Classes Offered

Healthy Acadia is thrilled to offer tai chi classes in Brooksville and Deer Isle beginning in mid-June.   In Deer Isle, classes will meet on Wednesdays in the Community Room of the Island Nursing Home (587 N, Deer Isle Road) beginning June 13 and continuing through August 8, 2018 (no class on July 4). Mia Kanazawa, a certified Instructor in Dr. Paul Lam's Tai Chi for Health Programs, will offer Seated Tai Chi from 10:30am to 11:15am for those unable to stand or who prefer to practice seated; and Tai Chi for Arthritis and Fall Prevention from 11:15am to 12:15pm -  participants need not have arthritis to enjoy and benefit from this class.

The Brooksville Library (1 Town House Road, Brooksville) will host a Tai Chi for Health class, also led by Mia, on Thursdays from 8:30am to 9:30am beginning June 14 and continuing through August 2, 2018. Classes are open to all and are offered free of charge with a suggested donation.

The ancient practice of tai chi is clinically proven to be an effective exercise that improves health and well-being. Tai chi’s slow, gentle, controlled movements have been found to increase flexibility, muscle strength, improve balance and reduce falls. Tai Chi can also be effective in relieving physical discomfort and in doing so, improve physical and mental function. Dr. Paul Lam's Tai Chi for Health programs employ an evidence based curriculum developed by Dr. Lam and a team of medical experts that makes tai chi safe, easy and fun for people of all ages and levels of ability.

For more information about these classes, call 326-9065 or email [email protected] For more information about Tai Chi for Health or other programs offered through Healthy Acadia, contact Nina Zeldin at 667-7171 or [email protected] or visit https://healthyacadia.org.

Dave’s World to reveal new kitchen, bath & flooring showroom
(Thu. 14 Jun, 2018 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm)

Dave’s World to reveal new kitchen, bath & flooring showroom at june 14th chamber after hours / Showroom grand opening celebration, 5:30-7:30pm

DOVER-FOXCROFT, ME — Dave’s World of Dover Foxcroft is well known throughout Maine.

Perhaps it is because they have become the national leader in heat pump sales, or because they have experienced incredible growth since they’ve opened their doors, creating jobs and boosting the economy in our region.

Some might say it is because of the unique television commercials you can’t stop hearing after you watch them -- you know, “Dave’s World – AWESOME!” – or because everywhere you look, you happen to see a Dave’s World van.  Or maybe it’s because, with each passing year, they find a way to offer new products and services needed by our local communities, eliminating the need to leave the county to get them, and keeping dollars local.

It could just be their customer service- or as the Dave’s World team likes to say, their ‘legendary’ customer service.

In 2016, Dave’s World was named the Piscataquis Chamber Business of the Year for many of the reasons mentioned above, and for many more. Ultimately, our local communities have been positively impacted by Dave’s World in numerous ways, and it does not appear that trend will cease anytime soon. Piscataquis Chamber Executive Director explains: “This privately-owned business, stationed in central rural-Maine, has grown into a force to be reckoned with. They’ve expanded to three stores and employ nearly fifty quality people throughout the state. They out-service and out-sell their competition in the heat pump world, nation-wide, and whatever they touch seems to prosper”, she continues, “now, they’ve done it again – this time by re-investing in their Dover-Foxcroft location by building in a stunning 1,700 square foot kitchen, bath, and flooring showroom, including a fully functional kitchen with gorgeous countertops and high-end appliances, and a beautiful bathroom with a custom-tile shower.”

All of the work done in the showroom was done by the very same contractors and installers that Dave’s World sends into customer’s homes. Dave’s World Kitchen, Bath & Flooring manager, Gregg Buzzelli explains, “we wanted to showcase the quality of our work so our customers could see it in person before it happens in their home.”

Dave’s World has offered in-house, complete kitchen and bathroom remodels for many years, and has also successfully provided professional custom design, product ordering & installation, and project management services to contractors on new construction for both residential and commercial projects; however, the prior set up at Dave’s World did not effectively represent those services. Today, when customers experience the new showroom, they will have a more complete understanding of all Dave’s World has to offer, both in product and quality craftmanship.

The new Kitchen, Bath, and Flooring Showroom gives customers a feast of options, styles, and colors to choose from - for every budget – from cabinets, to countertops, to backsplashes and flooring of all types; now customers can see and feel the product before making a purchase.

The Dave’s World team is excited to reveal the new showroom to our local communities.
On Thursday, June 14th, from 5:30-7:30pm, the Piscataquis Chamber will hold a SHOWROOM GRAND OPENING event for chamber members and community members to experience the new showroom for themselves.  Guests can expect to find refreshments including hors d'oeuvres, a cash bar, and great door prizes.

RSVP by 6/11 to 564-7533 is appreciated but not required.

The Gothard Sisters Irish music and dance
(Thu. 14 Jun, 2018 7:00 pm - 8:02 pm)

The Gothard Sisters Irish Music and Dance Bangor Arts Exchange 193 Exchange Street June 14, 2018 7 pm Tickets: online $20, https://bangorceltic.org/tickets ($25 at the door). “The Gothard Sisters’ grasp of style and presentation is big league, even when playing in more intimate settings.  This is a trio that comes off like an orchestra.”  - Celtic Beat Magazine. The Gothard Sisters are a dynamic group of three sisters, whose impressive array of talents have set them apart as one of the most refreshing and compelling acts in Celtic-roots music today. The sisters' unpredictable and theatrical flair brings a youthful splash to the time-honored tradition of Celtic folk music, bridging the gap between classical, folk, Celtic, world and roots influences with a sunny, optimistic style that has been described as "beautifully arranged, melodic-minded Celtic folk-pop." After ten years of playing together and a lifetime of getting to know one another, The Gothard Sisters' collaborative process and eclectic style has evolved into a jubilant live performance, full of entertaining sibling-banter, Irish step-dancing, foot-stomping tunes, lyrical melodies, storytelling, and a genuine lightness of heart that leaves audiences feeling refreshed and inspired. Hailing from Edmonds, Washington - in 2006, The Gothard Sisters first began playing together as a violin trio busking for tips at the local farmer's market, working their way onto stages at local fairs and festivals. Audiences responded with enthusiasm, and over 1,000 performances later the band recently performed at the Millennium Stage at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., completed several national concert tours of the United States, and are well-known musicians on the national Celtic festival circuit. In December 2016 The Gothard Sisters charted on Billboard's World Music Chart with their latest Christmas album, Falling Snow, alongside notable Irish music phenomena Celtic Woman and Celtic Thunder. When sisters Greta Gothard, Willow Gothard, and Solana Gothard use their musical talents together, the result is an irresistible mix of spritely violin and fiddle tones, pure sibling vocal harmonies, mandolin and pennywhistle accents, all supported by the powerful and exuberant rhythms of the Irish bodhran, African djembe, and acoustic guitar - creating what Irish Central calls "an earthiness that gives the songs a lively, approachable, down-home sound." The sisters have produced two albums, Story Girl, Compass and Mountain Rose- and self-produced, filmed and edited a collection of music videos at beautiful outdoor locations across Washington's wild landscape, striking chords with hundreds of thousands of Youtube viewers. Since then their music has been featured on NPR's Thistle and Shamrock program and PBS's Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour broadcast.

Author Talk and Book Signing: Ben Emory "Sailor for the Wild: On Maine, Conservation and Boats"
(Thu. 14 Jun, 2018 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm)

Join author Ben Emory at the Jesup Memorial Library on Thursday, June 14 at 7 p.m. for an author talk and book signing for his new book “Sailor for the Wild: On Maine, Conservation and Boats.” Emory recounts a lifetime of intertwined adventures on the water, as well as his background in professional and volunteer land conservation. Shining through is the joy of Maine’s ocean and landscape, fascination with good boats, dedication to conservation, and observations about a changing world.   In his book, Emory recounts the early history of the Maine Coast Heritage Trust (MCHT) as well as how it has evolved into the organization it is today. Emory was one of the original staff members of MCHT and served as the organizations third executive director. Emory also talks about Acadia National Park and his connections to it, including his time on the Acadia National Park Advisory Commission. This partnership between Acadia and MCHT promoted conservation easements as a tool for preserving the scenic and natural qualities of islands near MDI which became the basis nationally heralded conservation easement program.

Discovering Your Inner Wisdom: A Soul Collage ® Workshop
Saturday, June 16 from 12 noon to 3 pm
At St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church in Brewer

Artful Spirit Connection of St. Patrick's Episcopal Church announces Discovering Your Inner Wisdom: a SoulCollage ® Workshop on Saturday, June 16 from 12 noon to 3 pm. The co-presenters are Christine Talbott and Lisa Cohn.

SoulCollage® is a wonderful method for personal development that engages a person's intuition in a creative way.

SoulCollage®
• can become a daily or occasional practice that supports the card maker in making decisions, shedding fears, healing emotional wounds and much more and is similar or compli-mentary to meditation, yoga, prayer, journaling, or running, to name just a few practices
• helps cardmakers find their inner compass
• is fun and surprising! Making the cards is an enjoyable process and unlocking their wisdom can be astonishing
• is fun, easy, inexpensive, and helps participants find a sup-portive community of like-minded card makers and souls seekers or it can be a practice on your own once the process is learned
(Page 1 of 2)

In the words of Seena Frost, founder of SoulCollage ®, “You will love making these cards, love finding their meanings, and love sharing them with others. The deck be-comes your visual journal. When you hold your cards in your hands, it is like holding up a reflection of your many- faceted self.”

A SoulCollage ® workshop is being offered at St. Patrick's Episcopal Church as part of their Artful Spirit Connection program, on Saturday, June 16, 2018 at 12 noon to 3 pm. In this three-hour experiential workshop, the basic principles of Seena Frost's SoulCollage ® process will be taught followed by how to make cards and read them. There will be plenty of time for participants to make their first cards and it requires no artistic ability. The cost of the three-hour workshop is $35.00 and includes all materials.
In addition, to being a SoulCollage® facilitator, Christine Talbott is a Licensed Clini-cal Professional Counselor with seventeen years of experience in private practice in Bangor, ME. Co-presenter Lisa Cohn, LPC-c has a Master’s Degree in Art Thera-py and also is a certified SoulCollage® facilitator. She sits on several non-profit boards, volunteers and has an art therapy studio in Belfast, ME. Both Christine and Lisa are excited to share this amazing journey of self-discovery.
To reserve a spot contact Christine at [email protected] or message her on Facebook page ”SoulCollage® Discover Your Personal Wisdom.” For more information on SoulCollage® visit www.SoulCollage.com.

Healthy Acadia will offer a free, two-session “Prime for Life” training on Monday, June 18 and 25, from 4:30pm to 7:00pm, in the community room at Machias Savings Bank, 4 Center Street, Machias. “Prime for Life” is an evidence-based prevention program designed to help people better understand the difference between higher and lower risk choices with regard to substances. “Prime for Life” is based on the best information we have to date, and will help answer many questions such as:

•         Does family history increase risk?

•         Is the ability to “handle” alcohol protective?

•         Does drinking small quantities of alcohol reduce the risk for heart disease?

•         What are low-risk and high-risk choices for alcohol? Tobacco? Marijuana/other drugs?

•         What happens when people unknowingly make high-risk choices?

The class is open to interested community members aged 18 and older; participants must attend both sessions. Register online using this link: Register online using this link:

Several local businesses and organizations participating will highlight important community health and wellness resources as well.

Women who attend the fair will also be introduced to complementary healers and practitioners.  The event provides a great opportunity for women to learn about alternative therapies – and maybe give them a try.

A team of expert hair stylists, make-up and nail artists, and skincare specialists from Amy’s Aveda Salon and Spa of Ellsworth will pamper guests with a selection of mini Aveda treatments and rituals.

Located outside in front of Emlen Hall, there will be an opportunity to dispose of unwanted prescription medication during the event. The Prescription Drug Take-Back Event is a collaborative effort between Blue Hill Memorial Hospital, the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office, and Healthy Acadia.  All community members are encouraged to bring any unused, unwanted, or expired prescription drugs to the entrance of the school for this free, anonymous service where a representative from the Sheriff’s Office will be stationed for collection.

The event is designed to encourage and inspire women to take care of themselves and each other.  Every woman who attends will receive a free gift and is invited to enjoy delicious treats prepared by Blue Hill Memorial Hospital.  No registration is necessary.

Saving God's Creation: The Distinctively New England Roots of Land Conservation
(Tue. 19 Jun, 2018 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm)

Join author and historian Dr. Ronald H. Epp at the Jesup Memorial Library on Tuesday, June 19 at 7 p.m. as he leads an exploration of the history of land conservation in New England. In the post-Civil War 1800s, a handful of prominent pioneers worked to promote open—and sometimes wild—landscapes.    Epp’s talk will begin with the Puritan belief that as agents of God's will, nature must be subdued for personal needs. Three centuries later landscape architect Charles Eliot established the first land trust for the enjoyment of the public in perpetuity. Epp will explain how this movement for preserving wild land began with early environmentalists including Eliot as well as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, George Perkins Marsh, Thomas Cole, Frederic Edwin Church, Frederick Law Olmsted, Join Muir, Gifford Pinchot, and Theodore Roosevelt. These men were troubled by the contests between religion and society, nature and culture, and by the advent of industrialization, deforestation, urbanization, population growth and transportation innovations. They began their work to stem this by the creation of land trusts and sanctuaries.   Epp is the author of “Creating Acadia National Park: The Biography of George Bucknam Dorr,” the first biography of Dorr which was published during Acadia National Park’s Centennial Year by Friends of Acadia (FOA). He debuted the book at a joint talk with FOA at the Jesup which drew over a hundred attendees. He is a historian and professor of philosophy with a background in scholarly publishing and academic library leadership. He currently teaches in the Presidents’ College at the University of Hartford. As part of its Distinguished Lectures Series, he has been invited to give a talk this October to the Lenox Library Association on the impact of the Berkshires to the development of the national park on Mount Desert Island. Epp’s research over the last two decades into the Massachusetts families who influenced the development of conservation philanthropy led to “Creating Acadia National Park.” Dozens of talks at bookstores, libraries, historical societies, and museums throughout the Northeast followed. Epp served as a consultant for the Ken Burns documentary “America’s Best Idea: the National Parks” and has uncovered and inventoried hidden collections of documents relating to the history of Acadia National Park and the origins of the National Park Service.   Copies of “Creating Acadia National Park” will be on sale that night courtesy of co-sponsor Sherman’s Books.    For more information on this talk contact the Jesup at 207-288-4245 or [email protected]

Author Talk and Book Signing: Cornelia Cesari "Baker Island"
(Wed. 20 Jun, 2018 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm)

Learn the history of Baker Island from the locals, lightkeepers, rusticators, schoolteachers who lived on the island and their descendants in this first history of Baker Island, “Images of America: Baker Island.” Cornelia Cesari, the author of the book, as well as a part-time resident of Baker Island, will be at the Jesup Memorial Library on Wednesday, June 20 at 6:30 p.m. for the launch of the book.    The book covers the history of Baker Island, from its settlement in 1806, its use by the U.S. Government as a location for a lighthouse as well as a Signal Service facility, to its popularity with rusticators, to its decline and subsequent revival. Baker Island’s population peaked at two dozen people but these 123 acres, mostly part of Acadia National Park, are special to many people. Cesari says she wrote her book because there was not a history of Baker Island, “The truth is, I wrote the book because I wanted to read it, but it didn't exist. So I had to write it first.”   Cesari is the president of the board of the Keepers of Baker Island, which is an organization whose mission is to preserve, protect, and promote stewardship of Baker Island's natural and cultural resources, for the enjoyment, education and inspiration of visitors, now and in the future. She splits her time between Baker Island and Vermont.    Books will be on sale that night courtesy of co-sponsor Sherman’s Books and the talk is co-sponsored by Bar Harbor Bank & Trust. There will be a reception before the talk. For more information contact the Jesup at 207-288-4245 or [email protected]

Maine’s Native American veterans to be celebrated on June 21
(Thu. 21 Jun, 2018 6:00 pm - 6:02 pm)

Thursday, June 21, is Native American Veterans Day in Maine, and an event celebrating the role of Native American veterans will be held at 6:00pm at 1 Down Street, Indian Island. All are welcome. One Down Street is the home of much-decorated Penobscot veteran Charles Norman Shay, and the site of a tipi museum commemorating his experiences as a member of the Big Red One on D-Day, June 6, 1944. The site will now include a kiosk and new artwork by noted Penobscot artist Tim Shay, his nephew, to be unveiled at this ceremony.    Gov. John Baldacci signed a bill in 2009 to establish June 21 of each year as Native American Veterans Day in Maine. Baldacci and other distinguished guests like Sen. Angus King, and Sen. Susan Collins have been invited to the event. Penobscot Chief Kirk Francis will attend, and members of the community will offer honor songs and tributes to the veterans.   A new sculpture by artist Tim Shay will be unveiled that completes a connection to Omaha Beach in Normandy, France. A matching artwork rests in a Native American memorial in the village of Saint-Laurent-sur-Mer, of a granite turtle facing west to Indian Island, and the new turtle artwork faces east to Normandy, 3100 miles apart. The turtle, a personal totem for Charles Shay, links prayers from Indian Island to Omaha Beach. The tipi at Down Street houses a veterans museum, showcasing the many honors and experiences of Charles Shay. In addition, an informative kiosk is being built.   This installation illustrates the service to the United States of Native American veterans like Charles Shay, who will be 94 years old later this month. In April 1943, after graduation from Old Town High School, Charles was drafted into the US Army and trained as combat medic. Pvt. Shay was assigned to an assault battalion in the first wave of attack on June 6, 1944. Having rescued drowning wounded comrades under enemy fire, he received the Silver Star. Shay was captured and spent a month in a prisoner of war camp. In Fall 1945, after the war ended, he was awarded four bronze battle stars and demobilized. Shay also later served in Korea. In 2007, he received the Légion d’Honneur from President Nicolas Sarkozy at the French Ambassador’s residence in Washington, DC., for his heroic duty to France.   Native Americans have served in the U.S. Armed Forces in every major military conflict since the Revolutionary War and in greater numbers per capita than any other ethnic group, according to The Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian. All are welcome to Indian Island to attend this event honoring those who served, and to visit the museum and installation of maps, awards and artwork.

Author Talk and Book Signing: Christopher White "The Last Lobster: Boom or Bust for Maine’s Greatest Fishery?”
(Thu. 21 Jun, 2018 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm)

In the last five years, Maine lobstermen have annually caught more than 120 million pounds, six times what was caught annually in the 1980’s. But can this last? Join author Christopher White as he explores Maine’s lobster industry at the Jesup Memorial Library on Thursday, June 21 at 7 p.m. for an author talk and book signing for “The Last Lobster: Boom or Bust for Maine’s Greatest Fishery?”   “The Last Lobster” is a detective story, where scientists and fishermen explore what is causing this increase in lobsters off the Mane coast. The two theories that stand out are a sudden lack of predators and a recent wedge of warming waters, which may disrupt the reproductive cycle, a consequence of climate change. However, these same factors that may have stimulated the boom could prove to be its undoing. Ominously, the range of lobsters is moving northward, as it is for many marine species affected by climate change.   Over the course of a year, White follows three lobster captains—Frank, Jason, and Julie—as they haul and set thousands of traps off the coast of Stonington and fight a warming ocean, volatile prices, and rough weather to keep their livelihood afloat.  “The Last Lobster” is a celebration of the lobstermen of Maine and a warning that the recent boom and the possible coming bust could be stark lessons for all of us who live in a world of climate change.   Booklist writes that “The Last Lobster” is “an in-depth look at the state’s most significant fishery [...] Lobsters are intrinsically linked to the soul of Maine, and White’s thoughtful chronicle gives both the highly desired marine crustaceans and the people who seek them their due.”   Christopher White is a science writer and naturalist has written numerous books, including “Skipjack: The Story of America’s Last Sailing Oystermen” and “The Melting World: A Journey Across America’s Vanishing Glaciers.” His articles have appeared in Audubon, The Baltimore Sun, The New Mexican, National Geographic, and Exploration.  Early in his career, White was a staff biologist for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, specializing in maritime issues. He also served as Executive Director of the Mare Nostrum Foundation, a Belgium-based ocean policy organization. He grew up on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay.   Books will be on sale that night courtesy of co-sponsor Sherman’s Books and the talk is co-sponsored by Bar Harbor Bank & Trust.    For more information on White visit christopherwhitebooks.com and for more information on the talk contact the Jesup at 207-288-4245 or [email protected]

“China: Hong Kong, Macau and Shenzhen” Talk with Ross Dinyari
(Fri. 22 Jun, 2018 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm)

Ross Dinyari first visited Hong Kong in the 1970’s and China in the 1980’s. Over the past thirty years, he has continued to visit the area and he most recently traveled there a few months ago. Join Dinyari at the Jesup Memorial Library on Friday, June 22 at 7 p.m. for a talk and slideshow as he explores the region and how it has changed over the ensuing years.   Dinyari says, “The first time I visited China, bicycles ruled the roads and building were being built using bamboo scaffolding. The best hotels rooms were drab-looking, furnished with primitive scant furniture with a single light bulb hanging from the ceiling. The China I visit now is a model of style and luxury, from the BMWs and Mercedes to luxury hotels and restaurants with food and service surpassing the West.” Dinyari will highlight his time in Hong Kong, Macau and Shenzhen. He will also be talking about China’s place in the world today and how it relates to the West.   For more information on the talk, contact the Jesup at 207-288-4245 or [email protected]

Celebrate Husson! - Food, a Fun Run, and the Music of Aretha and Smokey
(Sat. 23 Jun, 2018 9:00 am - 9:00 pm)

Members of the community, including Husson University alumni, are invited to participate in Celebrate Husson! on Friday, June 22 and Saturday, June 23, 2018. With events for children and adults, this two-day event is jam packed with fun for all ages. On Saturday, June 23, the events kick off with a “Run for the Gold.” This fun run is divided into four major categories. For adults, there’s a 5K run. Registration is $25. There’s also a student version of the 5K run that only costs $10. For those who prefer a slightly slower pace, the “Run for the Gold” offers a one mile, fun run/walk for everyone 10 and older for just $10. Children nine-years-old and under can participate in the one mile fun run/walk for free. Participants in the run can wear whatever they like. Creativity is welcome. Runners should keep in mind that this is a color run, so they should avoid wearing anything that they don’t want to get full of colored powder. “We recommend that runners wear some sort of white shirt. White garments help other participants see and enjoy the fun,” said Amanda Cummings, director of alumni relations at Husson University and race organizer. “And don’t worry about getting color all over your car when the run is done. All registered participants receive a free event T-shirt they can change into at the end of the event.” Registration for all four “Run for the Gold” events begins at 9:00 a.m. at the Gardner Basketball Court on Husson University’s Bangor campus. Registered participants should meet on College Circle at 9:30 a.m. to begin the “Run for the Gold.” As Celebrate Husson! moves into the late afternoon, attendees will have even more opportunities for great food and entertainment. From 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m., there will be a lobster bake with the Atlantic Clarion Steel Band in a tent next to the Beardsley Meeting House. Founded in Brooksville, Maine in 1974, the Atlantic Clarion Steel Band has become widely known throughout the New England area for its outstanding performances at festivals, parades, clubs, parties and concert halls. This is a modern steel drum band, with instruments, called "pans", gleaming and tuned to an astonishing degree of clarity, playing an amazing range of music from concert classics to pop and from jazz to calypso. The group is a chamber ensemble, a jazz band and a party band all wrapped up into one. The Atlantic Clarion Steel Band has performed at Lincoln Center. The band's founder and leader, Carl Chase, is one of a small number of people in the United States who makes and tunes pans. All the other band members are involved in teaching pan, and promoting its use in schools, colleges and community programs throughout New England. Fresh Maine lobster will be served to event participants. There is a $25 charge to attend the lobster bake. Husson University has also instituted a kid’s price of $12 per child for all children 12 and under who won’t be eating lobster. While the lobster bake will feature servings of everyone’s favorite crustacean, those who prefer non-lobster choices can feast on other sumptuous summer selections, including chicken and burgers. The event is sponsored, in part, by PepsiCo. Capping off the Celebrate Husson! events at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 23 is an evening of blues, gospel, pop and soul when Cruising Steady: The Music and Friendship of Aretha Franklin and Smokey Robinson takes the stage at the Gracie Theatre. Longtime friends, Aretha Franklin and Smokey Robinson’s lives were similarly shaped by the times they lived in and their experiences. The show explores their music, careers, relationship, and how two different kids from Detroit became international superstars. Cruising Steady is an evening of fun, nostalgia, and some of the best music ever written. The show features Broadway stars Patrice Covington (Color Purple, Motown: The Musical, Dreamgirls) and Jess Nager (Motown: The Musical, Mamma Mia, Mary Poppins.)  Tickets for Cruising Steady: The Music and Friendship of Aretha Franklin and Smokey Robinson are $35 each. Those who choose to attend both the lobster bake and Cruising Steady: The Music and Friendship of Aretha Franklin and Smokey Robinson are eligible to purchase combined tickets at a reduced price. Tickets for adults to both events are available for $50 – a 16 percent savings. To register for all or part of Celebrate Husson! visit http://www.husson.edu/alumni/celebratehusson.

EASTER IN JUNE AT COTTONTAIL COTTAGE RABBIT RESCUE
(Sun. 24 Jun, 2018 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm)

EASTER IN JUNE AT COTTONTAIL COTTAGE RABBIT RESCUE

Most of us, have heard of Christmas in July, but Easter in June? This is the theme for Cottontail Cottage Rabbit Sanctuary’s upcoming open house, scheduled for Sunday, June 24th. Due to the late snowfall in March, the micro-farm sanctuary in Lamoine, had to postpone their Spring open house. Executive director, Jenny Nichols, says, this may become a new tradition.

“In the past, we’ve tried to downplay the whole Easter bunny craze in an attempt to discourage rash purchases of rabbits as pets. It can be a sad plight for them, as months later, as they grow into adulthood, many are quickly abandoned or surrendered to shelters like ours.”

Nichols goes on to say, that this year, they’ve decided to use Easter as an even greater platform to educate the public about the needs and care for these often, complicated pets. The open house will feature an Easter egg hunt that will begin promptly at 12pm. The Easter bunny will make an appearance, and there will be tours of the facilities, including their new barn filled with the 29 baby bunnies from Las Vegas that were part of a nationwide rescue effort. This will be the first time the barn has been open to the public. There will also be refreshments and bunny face painting. The open house begins at 11am and ends at 3pm. Although this is a free event, it is an important fundraiser for Cottontail Cottage. Tax-deductible donations are greatly appreciated.

Cottontail Cottage is located at 21 Cottontail Lane, just off the Shore Road from the Lamoine Corner side by the grange hall. Parking will be on the right side of the road. For more information, please call (207) 343-0738 or visit them on their website: www.ccrabbitrescue.org.

Her event at the Jesup is the kick off of her book tour and she will be speaking at the library the night the book is released.     In “Bimini Twist,” Jane Bunker has scored an invite to Green Haven’s exclusive Summer Solstice Soiree but that’s the last place she wants to be; hobnobbing and making small talk with the upper crust isn’t exactly her idea of a good time. She prefers to put in her hours working as an insurance investigator, and part-time as the deputy sheriff. When she gets to work one morning, the sheriff asks her to take a break on her personal war on drugs—instead, Jane takes on a missing person case—a young woman working at the Bar Harbor Inn has disappeared. The Inn employs foreign exchange students from all over the world during the busy summer season, and the missing Bianca Chiriac is one of them. When it becomes clear that Bianca isn’t just sleeping off a late-night party, Jane is plunged into the underbelly of the resort town, and must find the missing woman before the worst happens.      Greenlaw is the author of the bestsellers “The Hungry Ocean,” “All Fishermen are Liars,” “The Lobster Chronicles,” and “Recipes from a Small Island,” as well as the Jane Bunker mysteries. Before becoming a writer, she was the captain of a swordboat, the career that earned her a prominent role in Sebastian Junger’s “The Perfect Storm” and a portrayal in the subsequent film. She now lives on Isle au Haut, Maine, where she captains a lobster boat.   This author talk is cosponsored by Bar Harbor Bank & Trust and books will be on sale that night courtesy of cosponsor Sherman’s Books. The doors for this event will open at 6:30 p.m.   For more information on Greenlaw visit lindagreenlaw.com and for more information on the talk contact the Jesup at 207-288-4245 or [email protected]

Film screening and discussion: Legalize Equality
(Wed. 27 Jun, 2018 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm)

Film screening and discussion: Legalize Equality

Brooksville, Maine, USA -- On Wednesday, June 27 at 6pm, join Brooksville members of Equal Rights Maine, Sally Stone, Linda Nelson, and Posie Cowan to view the film Legalize Equality, a documentary about the efforts currently underway to pass an Equal Rights Amendment.

What, you say? Women don’t have equal rights in the US Constitution? Over 80% Americans think that there is an Equal Rights Amendment in our Constitution but there is not. This 30 minute film depicts the status of women in America and demonstrates the inadequacies in the present laws that are supposed to protect women.

Following the film they will discuss what could and is being done to pass an Equal Rights Amendment now. An Equal Rights Amendment is essential because it would provide a clear basis for protection against discrimination based on sex at the highest level of the law.

This event is free and open to everyone. Join us.

Ellsworth – “Critical Hours” by Sandy Stott at Ellsworth Public Library
(Wed. 27 Jun, 2018 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm)

Ellsworth – “Critical Hours” by Sandy Stott

Thursday June 27, at 6:00 p.m. at Ellsworth Public Library

A perilous history of search and rescue in a changing landscape

A misread map, a sudden storm, a forgotten headlamp—and suddenly a leisurely hike turns into a treacherous endeavor. In the past decade, inexpensive but sophisticated navigation devices and mobile phones have led to alarming levels of overconfidence on the trail. Adding to this worrisome trend, the increasing popularity of ventures into mountainous terrain has led hikers seeking solitude—or an adrenaline rush—into increasingly remote or risky forays. Sandy Stott, the “Accidents” editor at the journal of the Appalachian Mountain Club, delivers both a history and a celebration of the search and rescue workers who save countless lives in the White Mountains—along with a plea for us not to take their steadfastness and bravery for granted. Filled with tales of astonishing courage and sobering tragedy, Critical Hours will appeal to outdoor enthusiasts and armchair adventurers alike.

Outside magazine's 'Best New Books for Spring 2018' list Commendation

SANDY STOTT is a former editor of Appalachian Mountain Club’s journal Appalachia, a longtime English teacher, and a lifelong wanderer in the White Mountains.

Author Talk and Book Signing: Sandy Stott’ “Critical Hours: Search and Rescue in the White Mountains”
(Thu. 28 Jun, 2018 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm)

A misread map, a sudden storm, a forgotten headlamp—and suddenly a leisurely hike turns into a treacherous endeavor. Sandy Stott’s book “Critical Hours: Search and Rescue in the White Mountains” shines a light on the search and rescue workers (SAR) who save countless lives of those lost in the mountains. Join Stott at the Jesup Memorial Library on Thursday, June 28 at 7 p.m. for an author talk and book signing.    In the past decade, inexpensive but sophisticated navigation devices and mobile phones have led to alarming levels of overconfidence on the trail. Adding to this worrisome trend, the increasing popularity of ventures into mountainous terrain has led hikers seeking solitude or an adrenaline rush into increasingly remote or risky forays. Stott who is the “Accidents” editor at Appalachia, the journal of the Appalachian Mountain Club, delivers both a history and a celebration of these search and rescue workers in the White Mountais. Alongside these tales of courage and tragedy is a plea to not take these people and their bravery for granted.    Outside magazine named “Critical Hours” one of its “Best New Books for Spring 2018” writing “Stott focuses on the heroism of SAR workers and what these incidents can teach us about staying safe in the mountains.” Laura Waterman, author of “Forest and Crag: A History of Hiking, Trail Blazing, and Adventure in the Northeast Mountains” writes “You need this book whether you’re a White Mountains veteran or someone slinging on a pack for the first time. Stott’s wise and urbane writing on the search and rescue culture has us compulsively reading these narratives of (mostly) loss, and of those who rescue us from our own misjudgments.”   Stott is a former editor of Appalachian Mountain Club’s journal Appalachia, a longtime English teacher, and a lifelong wanderer in the White Mountains.   Books will be on sale that night courtesy of co-sponsor Sherman’s Books. This talk is co-sponsored by Bar Harbor Bank & Trust. For more information on the talk contact the Jesup at 207-288-4245 or [email protected]

Author Talk and Book Signing: Meg Little Reilly "Everything that Follows"
(Fri. 29 Jun, 2018 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm)

In her new novel, “Everything That Follows,” Meg Little Reilly, who worked in the Obama Administration, explores what happens when a rash decision has life-altering results. Reilly will be at the Jesup Memorial Library on Friday, June 29 at 7 p.m. for an author talk and book signing.    In “Everything That Follows,” Kat and Hunter, two old friends, and Kyle, a new acquaintance gather, at a Martha’s Vineyard bar and decide in their inebriated state to continue the party offshore. The mood turns threatening, and as sheets of rain pour down, Kyle goes overboard. Was it a tragic accident? Or a case of foul play? The truth is elusive. Is Kyle a victim or villain? This chilling tale ventures into the shadows to illuminate the gray area where survival extorts a heavy price—and those who pay it must learn to live with its cost.   Kim Cross, the New York Times Bestselling author of “What Stands In A Storm” writes, “Taut with moral complexity and a subtly building tension, this is the kind of story that punishes you if you dare to put it down.” And Booklist adds “Everything That Follows” is “a skillfully wrought tale of atonement in a frame of psychological suspense.”   Reilly is the author of the two novels “Everything That Follows” and “We Are Unprepared.” She is a public radio commentator, essayist and outdoors enthusiast. Her work has appeared in McSweeney's, Literary Hub, Vermont Public Radio, Politico, Women Writers, and more. Prior to writing novels, Meg worked in national politics and the White House as the deputy associate director in the Office of Budget Management. She holds a B.A. from the University of Vermont and an M.A. from the George Washington University.    Books will be on sale that night courtesy of co-sponsor Sherman’s Books and the talk is co-sponsored by Bar Harbor Bank & Trust.
