Emerson celebrated his 6th birthday on Friday at the Orono Fair. He enjoyed all the activities. Milking a cow was definitely a hit. Friday was ‘Farming Fun Friday’ featuring fun educational activities for our homeschool community, preschoolers and parents.


Tracking the flight of the Monarch

On Saturday September 10, over 100 area residents joined the Samuel Wilmot Nature Area Management Advisory Committee to collect and tag Monarch Butterflies before they set out on their 4000 km journey to a patch of forest in Mexico, to which they’ve never been.


Triumphant return

Wow. What a fair.
Prior to purchasing the paper, I worked for 15ish years in resource development for non-profit and charity organizations. Part of my role involved volunteer recruitment and training. I was always in awe of the talent and dedication that would brighten my world. The first year we owned the paper my heart swelled. The level of volunteerism in our communities was unsurpassed.

Although many organizations are finding it tough bouncing back after the last two years – fundraising and volunteer recruitment being the two main hurdles, the level of excellence that occurred during the four days of the Orono Fair was beyond compare.
