Christine Dentremont has updated us on her recent artistic achievement: “In between snowstorms, I presented a final proposal for my first Percent for Art callback. It was for a tree canopy-inspired sculpture in the Fred P. Hall School in Portland. Unfortunately, I did not get the commission. Everyone called back has multiple public art installations. The stained glass fish in the Bass Harbor ferry terminal is done by one of the artists chosen. I am honored to be pooled with that group for a recall. Thanks to everyone that helped with input and encouragement.”
Emmie Sawyer has shared Easter information with us: “The Easter sunrise service will be held at 6 a.m. on Sunday, April 1, at the Atlantic Fireponds, toward the shore. An Easter sunrise breakfast will be at the Church of God fellowship hall following this service (approximately 6:45 a.m.). All are welcome and remember to dress warmly!”
Gloria Green has invited us to a joyous event: “We are hosting a baby shower for Jodie and Nick Mauger at 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 14, at the Swan’s Island Church of God, 77 Rose Hill Road. They are expecting a baby girl at the end of May and are registered at Walmart.com under ‘Jodie Mauger.’ We also will have a diaper raffle. This is how it works, you bring a box of diapers, and your name will be put into a jar. A winner will be randomly picked at the end of the shower. The winner will receive a $25 gift card. Please join us for games and snacks and help us celebrate the soon-to-be parents!”

We extend our condolences to the family and friends of Barbara Matthews (Gumma) who recently passed away. She is missed by many.
Happy birthday to Jessica DeFrenn and June Rabatin.
