David and Jean Herrick want to thank the Downeast Lakes  Land Trust  for holding “Serious Skills for Boys and Girls” on Thursday mornings. Jean comments, “ On July 10th our granddaughter Kaitlyn and her friend, Nora learned archery skills and on July 17th our granddaughters Emily and Camryn learned canoe skills. All of the girls had a wonderful time. We thank Downeast Lakes Land Trust for sponsoring these events. We highly recommend anyone who has kids or grandkids between the ages of 11 and 16 check out these Thursday morning activities.”

 Good weather has really helped the volunteers working on the library addition. This past weekend the crew of four closed in the roof. Two of the four were volunteer fireman. Tony Thompson from Waite helped, as well as Warren Valentino, and the core volunteers, Jim Davies and David Herrick. As often as can be arranged, there will be a fundraiser book table at the Farmers’ Market on Thursdays. There are many recently published hardcover books, as well as, an assortment of paperbacks. All proceeds will go to the renovation of the existing basic library building. Live  music was played nearly non-stop at last Thursday’s market and enjoyed by many. Some impromptu dancing and  hula hoop demonstrations were observed.
