The Chamber Chatter
Lots of happenings at 49 Franklin, featuring the “90’s Club MTV Dance Party” (no cover charge) on Saturday and the “Special Occasion Expo” on Sunday (businesses specializing in weddings, parties, etc. with free admission). Saturday is a “Dance Party Night” and will start at 8 p.m. (21+).
On Wednesday, February 27, the Hope Association is presenting Aimee Cecile-DesRoches from the Maine Autism Society starting at 3 p.m. There will be a meet and greet first at 2:30 p.m. at the Hope Association on 85 Lincoln Ave. in Rumford. With the state continuing to cut services for many this presentation will help plan for the future for young adults 14-21 so that the services for them will not “fall through the cracks”. (Maine Autism Society is www.asmonline.org). FMI call 364-4561 or www.hopeassociation.org.
Add another day on to the end school year thanks to this “historic” storm (not my words but meteorologist quotes but doesn’t pertain to this area). I believe that brings the last day of school in RSU#10 to June 13! (originally June 6). What are the chances we won’t get hit again?
Just a reminder of the “Living with Alzheimer’s for Care Givers” event at Rumford Community Home at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. Bill Kirkpatrick, program director for the Alzheimer’s Association, will be presenting.
The first annual Scrapbooking–Crafting benefit will take place at the Hope Association on Saturday, March 16 from 7a.m. (doors open) to 10 p.m. There will be door prizes, silent auctions, a swap table and a 50/50 raffle.
