“Prime for Life” Focuses on Substance Risk (Mon. 18 Jun, 2018 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm)

“Prime for Life” Focuses on Substance Risk

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:

Blue Hill Memorial Hospital Hosts 7th Annual Women’s Wellness Fair

Blue Hill, ME (June 7, 2018) – Blue Hill Memorial Hospital will hold its seventh annual  Women’s Wellness Fair at The Bay School in Blue Hill from 4:00-6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 19.  With support from Bar Harbor Bank and Trust, the event is free and open to the public, and includes activities and information for women of all ages. “Blue Hill Memorial Hospital is delighted to hold this annual community outreach event,” says Kelley Columber, director of communications at the hospital. “This is a perfect opportunity for us to connect with and educate our patients, friends, and neighbors in a fun, interactive, low-pressure setting.” Hospital departments will share information on surgical services, stress management, incontinence, nutrition, strength training, heart health, in addition to blood pressure and cholesterol screenings and diabetes and nutrition assessments. 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.

For more information, please contact Kelley Columber at 374-3418.

“The Great American Read”

 

 

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]

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.
