Island students earn honors



Congratulations to all the Swans Island students who made the Mount Desert Island High School second quarter honor roll. Emily Banks, Dori LeMoine, Ashley Tapley, Mary Joy, Jacob Lemoine, Brandon Davis and Will Smith made honors level, while Amara Joyce scored high honors. We are very proud of each one of you.

Jeanne Hoyle informs us that the Maine Sea Coast Mission is planning a special trip on Sunbeam for anyone who would like to go to Great Cranberry for Palm Sunday church service on March 29. Please let her know if you are interested in going with them.

The application deadline for Maine Community Foundation, Island Institute and Maine Sea Coast Mission scholarships is right around the corner. One more possible source of funding for our students is the Shaw Fund for Mariners’ Children. The fund provides short-term financial aid and will offer assistance to those who qualify for heating fuel, energy costs, college books, medical bills and other expenses. Please call the Bangor representative at 990-1776 for more information.

Dr.Timothy Oh and the staff from Caring Hands of Maine Dental Center will offer dental services on Friday, April 3, at the Health Center. Both current and new patients may call their office at 667-6789 to schedule an appointment.

We extend our condolences to the family and friends of Theo McCormick, who passed away on Friday, March 13, owing to complications from pneumonia. I will post more about this special lady after receiving information regarding her funeral arrangements.

Happy birthday to Monica Cease, Jamie Matthews, Jaime Rose, Niamh Annie Stinson and Mimi Rainford. Anniversary blessings to Leslie and Rhonda Ranquist and Tom and Bev McAloon.
