Welcome to August. Summer is in full swing, and there's a lot to do!

A reminder that the selectmen meet every other Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at the Town Office. These meetings are open to the public and everyone is welcome — they value your input. Please see the calendar on the town website for specific dates.

There will be a mass care exercise at the Mount View complex on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 9 and 10. This includes Shelter/Pet First Aid Training at 9 a.m. on Saturday. Please contact Olga Rumney of the Waldo County Emergency Management Agency at 338-3870 for more information.

The agency is also looking for a group of six to 12 people who would be interested in being on a county feeding team. The participants should be willing to take some training that would lead to a certification. It would be one day, and free. This team would be used when we have to open an overnight shelter, and most likely, once a year for a large exercise. Training cannot be set up unless there are participants. Again, contact Olga Rumney at the above number.

Marsh River's Got Talent

The Marsh River Theater has an annual variety show coming up in September and is currently looking for more acts. Please contact Mike Switzer at 323-8316, or see him or myself at Ralph's Cafe. This is a fun show and we'd love to have you! We are also looking for musicians for "Gypsy" who can play a small, handheld instrument. This show opens in October. "The Revolutionists," directed by Frank Champa, opens in a few weeks. More information to follow.

I hope everyone has noticed the new roof on The First Congregational Church of Brooks, UCC. The trustees are planning to shingle the steeple in the very near future.

The Mount View High School class of 1969 is preparing to celebrate the 50th anniversary of its graduation at Young's Lobster Pound on Sept. 21, 4 to 7 p.m. The class of 1969 was the second class to complete all four high school years at the original set of buildings. More information can be found on the Facebook page "Mount View High School Class of '69."
