If you are interested in helping children and adults improve their reading, writing, math, and English speaking skills, please join us for volunteer training conducted by Midcoast Literacy here at the Community Center. The group will meet on Aug. 12, 19, and 26 from 10 a.m. until noon. If you are uncertain, please do not hesitate to come to the first meeting and see what it is all about — once again, we are offering a way for you to help your fellow man and benefit from the joy you will give to others.
Congratulations to Sandra Leonard, the winner of our second Lobster Raffle for the season. There is one more opportunity to win a feast of lobsters — our third drawing on Aug. 30 — just in time for Labor Day Weekend. Tickets are available at The Center and from our Lobster Ladies and other volunteers whom you will see around town. We are so grateful to the lobstermen who have so generously donated part of their catch to our benefit.
A small housekeeping note: Due to a work schedule conflict, Genealogy will meet this week on Tuesday from 10 to 1, and at the regular time, on Wednesday, next week.
Be sure to call 633-9876 if you have questions about our programs or if you need to borrow durable medical equipment or if you need a ride to the center. We are here for you.
