It’s time for the Swans Island P.I.K. Fall Festival. P.I.K. (People Interested in Kids) is “a nonprofit community-based organization whose main focus is to enhance Swans Island school programs and social experiences through creative and fun memories.” Karen Ann Martin has excited us with details of this fundraiser; held on Friday, Oct. 27, from 6-8 p.m. at the Swans Island Odd Fellows Hall, there is a strong possibility for a spooky haunted house. Come support our kids while having some great family fun.
Donna Wiegle has notified us that Dr. Timothy Oh and the staff of Caring Hands of Maine Dental Center will be on the island for a dental clinic on Friday, Oct. 27, at the Mill Pond Health Center. New and existing patients are welcome. Call their office at 667-6789 to schedule an appointment.
