Hello Everyone, I hope the beginning of school has been good. My Frisbee team is trying to raise money for the Maine Special Olympics. There is a tournament the 15th and 16th of October, which my team is attending. The tournament is all about raising money for this cause. Every team attending raises money, it’s a great cause and gives many people opportunity’s they might not otherwise have. If you can donate money to this cause it would be greatly appreciated. I will leave an envelope in the office at both the High school and the Lower schools. Checks can be made out to Maine Special Olympics.Thank you, Sierra Jeffers (10/04)
ISO Small utility trailer: Few things would make our family feel more complete than a small utility trailer—to borrow for barter or to go in on with one or more families who could use one, too. We haven't the room to store it, but a trailer we could tow to the dump, to camp or to fetch compost would sure come in handy from time to time. If you have one to loan, or you'd like to share in owning one, let us know! Michael Stefanakos / 917.279.4646 / email@example.com (10/04)
