Fall is here, and it is a great time to begin new hobby. Do you have an interest in learning to play bagpipes or pipe band drumming? Youth or adults in Charlotte or Washington County, who are interested, may call Dana at Charlotte Dial A Ride 466-4414 or 466-5855 for more information. We also need additional volunteers to help teach. Who knows?

Library News

I find myself agreeing with visitors to the Calais Free library that this is the best time of year the state of Maine has to offer.  Our gardens are still yielding vegetables.  The air has cooled and has a nice comfort level.  Everywhere we look green remains the color of the day.  Throughout these crisp days, our minds begin turning to new activities.
