North Nobleboro Community Association members recently held their final planning meeting for North Nobleboro Day. This year, the festivities will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 11 at the community grounds on Upper East Pond Road, or until the chicken runs out. This will be the 46th year that members of the community have joined together to organize a great day of fun for their neighbors while raising money to benefit the local area.
This year, members are pleased to present live music from Debbie Myers from 10 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Myers was the recipient at the 2006-2007 Maine Academy of Country Music Awards of the Best Female Vocalist and Entertainer of the Year awards, and this will be her 14th year at North Nobleboro Day. Also, expect to find the hall filled with “trash and treasures” and a live auction of donations from local businesses starting at 1 p.m. As always, there will be a large selection of delicious food, including pies, fudge, cakes, and cookies, and an unbeatable chicken barbecue.
Proceeds from North Nobleboro Day are used to support donations to local organizations. Examples of past donations include funds given to Nobleboro Central School for its library and yearly financial assistance offered to qualifying students. Donations are also made to the Nobleboro and Jefferson fire departments and for the care and upkeep of many local cemeteries. Funds are also used for the ongoing maintenance of the community hall and basketball courts. As the hall is used year-round for group meetings, weddings, and suppers, the profits used for upkeep of the facility are tremendously valued. Those who live in North Nobleboro and wish to donate an auction item or volunteer should call Hilary Petersen at 485-7410.
