Montville Town News
A funny thing happened to me this week. I was was half-paying attention to the late night news this past Tuesday when I said to my wife Sharon, that kid has a shirt just like Isaac (our son). I know that gray camouflage shirt anywhere. Well, it turns out, it was Isaac and the news was doing a story on his after-school club "Hactivate". He hadn't told us, well, I guess he hadn't told me. It was a great surprise! His group gets together on Mondays after school and works on computers, programming and building stuff with computer parts. Check it out: http://wabi.tv/2014/03/25/hacktivate-inspires-social-activity-electronics/. For more information on their after school and summer-camp programs visit, http://hacktivate.org/ and www.hackmaine.org/.
