DEXTER - Fermentation as a method of food preservation is an increasingly popular topic, and Dexter Dover Area Towns in Transition (DDATT) is pleased that Mary Margaret Ripley (of Dover Foxcroft’s Ripley Farm) will share her fermenting knowledge and experience at a “Kombucha” workshop 10 AM Saturday morning March 9th at Dexter’s Abbott Memorial Library.
Tired of sugary colas and artificially flavored drinks? At this hands-on workshop you'll learn how to prepare naturally fizzy, flavorful, and healthy beverages in your own kitchen with simple ingredients. Participants will find out why homemade refreshments like Kombucha, Beet Kvass, and Kefir are easy to make and good for you!
As DDATT’s mission is to help our area increase our energy and food independence and create a more stable rural economy, we are committed to skills and ideas which can help us all take better care of our natural resources.
PENQUIS - Trivia night gives community a chance to support local Hospice FUNdraiser
Pine Tree Hospice will be hosting a Trivia Night at The Commons, located at 152 East Main St., Dover-Foxcroft, starting at 7 p.m. on March 8, with a snow date of March 15. We thank our event sponsors Will’s Shop ‘n Save and Rowell’s Garage for their generosity in helping us bring this event to the community.
The event welcomes all ages as team participants, and spectators are encouraged to attend. Prizes for the top two teams, silent auctions, 50/50 raffles, snacks for team tables, and a cash bar are just part of what’s on the agenda for the evening’s festivities. Each table will consist of teams of six participants. If you have less than six team members, individual participants can join together to form a team that night, or teams may pay the full table price of $90 for up to 6 players. Admission is $15 per person and $5.00 for spectators. There will be a limited number of tables available, so we encourage teams to reserve their tables now.
Trivia night is all about breaking up a cold winter’s evening with a fun competition and maybe learning a thing or two in the process. Teams will be competing against one another for the grand prize as well as bragging rights as Central Maine Quiz Masters. The grand prize is a Whitewater Rafting trip with Northeast Whitewater. Second place finishers are entitled to an 18-hole round of Golf at Foxcroft Golf Club. Along with raffles throughout the evening, we will also be having several "Silent" Auction items (a photo session with Brenda Shultz Photography, dinner for two at The Quarry, Diane Laurie Needlepoint, Dove Tail Bats, and a gourmet gift basket from Chloe’s Collections) available for people to bid on.
If you are interested in reserving a table or have questions about this engaging event, please contact us at 207-564-4346 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
PENQUIS - You have so much to offer – and we need you! Would you like to help people and make a difference in your community? Pine Tree Hospice volunteers offer non-medical support to individuals and families in Piscataquis, Penobscot and Somerset counties who are dealing with progressive, life-limiting illnesses and/or grief. There is an ever increasing demand for volunteers who are willing to provide companionship and support, play games, run errands, take folks out for a ride, or just sit quietly so a caregiver can rest. There is also a need for volunteers to provide bereavement support to children and families. And you can do this by offering just a few hours of your time each month.
Our tagline is “We can’t add days to your life, but we can add life to your days.” Volunteering will add life to your days, and to the people you support! Pine Tree Hospice is offering a FREE volunteer training that begins on Thursday, March 21st, in Dover-Foxcroft. We encourage you to participate in this training and explore the possibility of making a difference in someone’s life. Pine Tree Hospice is a community-based, not-for-profit volunteer hospice that has provided service in 39 communities for over 30 years.
Call 564-4346 or email email@example.com for more information or to apply.
