Maine Coast Men plan annual gathering May 3-5

Apr 04, 2019

Linconlville — Maine Coast Men will welcome all area men to its 58th biannual gathering, with the theme “Healthy Risk Taking,” on Friday night to Sunday afternoon, May 3 to 5, at Tanglewood 4-H Camp in Lincolnville. The program is coordinated, led and supported entirely by participants.

The theme of Healthy Risk Taking asks the question, “How do we take chances in our lives that break us out of our daily habits and open us up to new experiences and revitalize our thoughts and experiences?” Men come together to challenge themselves and create a safe environment for each other to open up, share of themselves, take a chance.

The weekend will start with a potluck dinner, followed by a circle of men of all ages, at which each may speak about what he hopes to do or accomplish for the weekend. For those who have not attended before, a “buddy” will be available on Friday night to check on their needs when they arrive and show them around the place.

Food is planned by past participant volunteers who coordinate a small cooking crew for each meal. Everyone contributes by cooking, washing dishes, moving firewood and tending wood stoves.

Saturday night will feature a variety show, where men who want to can show off what they know, or maybe have fun with what they don’t.

Cost is $100 for the weekend to cover event expenses, and support can be arranged for those who have special needs. Advance registration is required for planning; for more information and to download a registration form, go to mainecoastmen.net. Discounts are available for for registering early, and the first three new-to-MCM men to register get in for free.

To talk with the registrar, call John at 785-2032.
