In order to get the Searsport column in the Republican Journal, your information has to get to me by Friday noon (today). This is a change from getting it to me by Sunday night.

On Tuesday Sept 19th from 6 pm to 8 pm at Union Hall we will be offering a viewing and discussion of the film "Resilience: The Biology of Stress & The Science of Hope." This is part of a project by Broadreach Family &Community Services to bring information to communities about the long term effects of "toxic stress" in childhood. It is an award-winning documentary film, which in 2 prior showings locally, has generated a lot of significant discussion.

I am attaching a project summary and a flyer to this e-mail. I am hopeful that you can help me "get the word out".

Friends of Sears Island to Host Branch Weaving Outdoor Art Workshop

Join Friends of Sears Island for a branch weaving workshop with Sandi Cirillo on Sunday, October 1st, from 9am-12pm. She will lead program attendees on an exploration of Sears Island while gathering natural materials to create a weaving, suitable for display in your home or a child's room. We'll look for a small but sturdy branch and then learn how to weave on found items. Everyone on this outing will learn more about the environment on Sears Island and how important it is to protect it. Registration is required for this event- please call 975-3878 to sign-up, as space is limited. This program is free and open to ages 7 and up. Children must attend with an adult who will be responsible for their supervision.

Sandi has been a fiber/mixed media artist for over 25 years and is a retired art educator who gives many different fiber workshops in the Northeast, North Carolina, locally at her home studio in Searsport, and through Bucksport Adult Education. Visit her website, to see examples of Sandi’s work and a list of available workshops.

Sears Island is on Sears Island Road off Route 1 just east of Searsport. Participants should park along the causeway at the end of the road and meet at the kiosk near the island gate by 9:00 am. Please bring a beach blanket to sit on while weaving and a pair of sturdy scissors. Also wear sturdy shoes, suitable clothing for hiking, and bring a snack, water, and bug spray if desired. Please no pets for this event. For more information and updates in the event of inclement weather, visit,, or call Ashley at 207-975-3878.

"Fling into Fall" will take place on Saturday, October 7. A complete program of events will be put out later. If you or your organization would like to participate, contact the Town Hall for further information (548-2868).

Feel free to pass this on to interested people
