My BFF Laurel Wolph and I took some of our dog pack to check out the Waldo County Trails Coalition’s Hills to Sea Trail near MOFGA on the Crosby Brook Rd, right beside Northern Solstice Alpacas. It was so beautiful and we got to see the amazing work MOFGA is doing on their American Heritage Orchard. There were great places for the dogs to swim, and even though the stream was only a foot deep or so, I think it must still be on the high side of normal because the current was strong.  Even our best swimmers struggled against with it. The Hills to Sea Trail continues to grow, and when it’s complete, the entire trail will reach from Unity to Thorndike, Knox, Freedom, Montville, Waldo and Belfast. Visit www.waldotrails.org for more info and a map of the trail.

A Celebration of Joe Dupere's Life

Saturday, May 10 at 1:00pm

Please join Joe's family and friends on Saturday, May 10th at 1 PM, as we celebrate the life of Joe Dupere. The potluck event will take place at MOFGA, home of the Common Ground Fair. Joe loved the tradition of Maine potluck meals, so please bring some favorite food to share, whether it be a main dish, side dish, salad, or dessert. In celebrating Joe's life there will be music, speeches, and photographs, as well as time for reminiscing. We will be encouraging any who are interested to say a few words, be it memories shared or stories of what Joe meant to you. As we, the family, struggle to move forward we want nothing more than to hear about Joe. We would like the celebration to reflect Joe's joy, humor, and general good-naturedness, and would ask that attire reflect this. And PLEASE, spread the word and invite any who would like to be here; Joe was involved in so many groups and organizations that we would be remiss to not have everyone here. www.sunnywoodfarm-maine.com/index/joe/0-41
