I am a relative newbie to Alna — six years — but I am a Mainer, if that helps. I consider myself fortunate and blessed to have found this little town in which to reside in retirement. I have found people here to be engaging and helpful as we have assimilated into the community. Despite my relatively recent arrival, I think I share an investment in and a commitment to the community with those that have lived here much longer.

For the first time since we started in 2015, there will not be a formal diaper drive this year. We are still distributing diapers and appreciate continuing support for this effort. We still welcome donations, mailed to the Ecumenical Diaper Bank, c/o Midcoast Friends Meeting, P.O. Box 714, Damariscotta, ME 04543. Checks should be made out to Damariscotta Baptist Church with “diapers” on the memo line.

We, the visionary progressives of America, do not feel defeat. Unlike many of my colleagues, friends, and family members, I have not felt an ounce of despair in facing the reality of Bernie Sanders’ suspended campaign.
During these challenging times, postal employees are working hard to ensure residents stay connected with their world through the mail. Whether it’s medications, a package, a paycheck, a benefits or pension check, or a bill or letter from a family member, postal workers understand that every piece of mail is important. While service like this is nothing new to us, we need our communities’ help with social distancing.
I would like to publicly thank Reilly’s grocery store in New Harbor for its wonderful service.
I have been a selectman for the town of Newcastle for the past 10 years and this is the first time in my tenure that we have needed to fill two coming vacancies. Ben Frey and Caroline Hatch have both decided to step down.

We find ourselves dealing with an unprecedented health crisis. While plans are changing rapidly, the most important and consistent part of the plan is social distancing. COVID-19 is in our community, so we want to remind folks that we can all help by promoting social distancing.
Like hospitals and health care providers across the state, LincolnHealth has been working since the earliest reported case of COVID-19, or coronavirus, to prepare for a response when it is needed.
