Not all children know exactly what they want to do when they grow up, but Thursday, Oct. 3, some local professionals visited Searsport Elementary School to give students a few ideas.

Second graders gathered in the school gym where several local volunteers had set up stations detailing the type of work they do in the community. Throughout the two-plus-hour event, students tried their hand at photography and learned all about clamming and lobster fishing. The youths also spoke to an officer with the U.S. Coast Guard and had a question-and-answer session with two members of Maine Search and Rescue Dogs, Jay Holweger and his canine, an eight-year-old chocolate Labrador named Maddy.
