Dexter Lee informs us that The Maine Community Foundation administers the Swans Island Education Achievement Trust Fund for high school seniors and college students. “The Swans Island Education Achievement Trust Fund will provide scholarship assistance to residents of Swans Island pursuing further education at a post-secondary institution. Awards will be based upon scholarship, achievement, service to the community and financial need, and may be renewable for a maximum of four years, based upon the continued performance and need of the student.” The online scholarship application is due May 1.

Lucinda Lowell plans to come to the island to conduct card classes. She reports, “Hopefully, the classes will be March 16-18. If I cannot have them that week, then it will be April before I can come. I will contact you when I know more. If you are interested in joining us for a fun night out, making five cards for $15, then just contact me. All levels of crafters are welcomed, and I will guide you along with what needs to be done.”
