"With the cold weather season upon us, as well as the holidays, local food pantries will have an increased demand for food supplies," said Jennifer Therrien, education director. "At just $20 per bag, we suggest that people buy a bag for themselves to enjoy and purchase an additional one to give to their local pantry, to help those in need. Challenger benefits, food pantries benefit -- this is a total win-win-win opportunity."
To purchase potatoes, please call Challenger: (207) 990-2900 ext. 3, or order online with a convenient form: astronaut.org. Payment by check is preferred (payable to: Challenger).
Tree identification walk
BANGOR – Calling all tree lovers! Join in for a tree ID walk through Central Penjajawoc Preserve with tree expert Steve Sader on Oct. 4. The walk will cover a little more than a mile on a loop trail and should take about an hour and a half. The walk starts at 10 a.m. from the parking lot off of Essex Street.
Directions: The kiosk and parking lot are on Essex St about two miles north of the Stillwater Ave intersection and 1/4 mile south of Burleigh Rd. Look closely to the right as you approach Burleigh Road – it is easy to miss.
