I Know ME is gaining steam. On November 29 there will be an informational meeting about the program at Mount View Middle School at 6 PM. If you know a 7th grader at Mount View who might be interested please contact Stephen Colby at 338-6447 for more information. Seventh graders and their families who are not able to make the meeting can still apply. Please contact Stephen for more information.

One of the many fun activities the I Know ME kids will be doing this year is “adopting” a food festival. The ultimate decision about which festival they should attend is up to the kids but we would like your opinions as well. Here is a list of just a few Maine food festivals. Which one do you think they should attend or should we add your favorite to the list?

  1. Wild Blueberry Festival in Machias
  2. Whoopie Pie Festival in Dover-Foxcroft
  3. Moxie Festival in Lisbon
  4. Red Hot Dog Festival in Dexter
  5. Clam Festival in Yarmouth
  6. Lobster Festival in Rockland

Kids will do more than enjoy great food and entertainment, they will also be volunteering at the festival to help organizers achieve success and understand the need for community involvement at all levels.
