Irish step is back at Merriconeag: As many of you know, Cristina Post won't be able to teach Irish step this year due to her daughter's imminent arrival. However, we are VERY lucky to have Bridget Burns stepping in, an Irish dance teacher from the Kennebunk area. She will be offering an 8 week session of classes on Tuesday nights in the Community Hall this fall. Beginners (dancers with 0-1 years of experience) are from 6:30-7:30, and continuing (more than one year of experience) are from 7:30-8:30. Classes start on October 18th. For more information, email either Bridget (questions about class info or pricing) at firstname.lastname@example.org or Cristina (questions about your dancer) at email@example.com. (10/11)

If you are the kind person who lent Megan Murphy a child carrier back when she went to China, it has been returned to the Early Childhood Center. Megan has moved and she dropped the carrier off here with heartfelt gratitude, but she was unable to recall exactly who had lent it to her. Call ext 105 or stop by the ECC to claim it.
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)
The Barham family is looking to rent a 1- 2 bedroom condo/camp near Sugarloaf a few weekends this winter. If you have any leads for us or have a rental available, please contact David at firstname.lastname@example.org or 433-0124. Thanks so much. (10/04)
