This event is part of a series of similar community discussions in the Midcoast Region. The first was held in Rockland on April 17th with more to come. Please be in touch if you’d like to engage more deeply with future events!

Using the books of Barbara Kent Lawrence (“Islands of Time” and “The Other Island: Ben’s Story”) as a springboard for discussion, participants will look at how our population, whether summer or permanent, multi-generational or “from away,” have formed the base for a vibrant year round community. We’ll also look at the some of the stresses, challenges and opportunities for a continued, bright future.

While participants are encouraged to read the books in advance of the conversation, it is not a requirement to attend the event. Nancy Smith, Executive Director of GrowSmart Maine and Barbara Kent Lawrence will frame the evening and attendees will participate in the discussion.
