Old time community picnic and auction
Next up in this summer’s roster of events to Move It! is a picnic and auction at the Center Schoolhouse, Sunday July 22, 5-7 p.m. Featuring slow-roasted pulled pork on homemade rolls, thanks to Arabella, Rose & Peter Thomas’ wood-fired oven, and lots of hot weather salads, cookies and watermelon, the picnic will be followed by an auction of local items and gift certificates. Bid on a cord of firewood, a private cruise on the Penobscot, even the right to have a character with your name in Liz Hand’s next novel.
Speaking of moving it, a very animated Center School, complete with hairy legs and pulled by three little girls, danced down Main Street in last Saturday’s Strawberry Festival parade. If you weren’t there, it’s a pretty sure thing a repeat performance will be arranged for the Fall Festival parade at the Beach. Don’t miss it!
The Pond Association meets Saturday, July 21, 9 a.m. to noon at Whitney Oppersdorf’s studio on Brawn Road. Fire protection for pond property owners will be the featured topic.
Be sure to stop by the museum with visitors in tow, if you have them this summer. Hours are M-W-F, 1-4 p.m.
