Enjoy the festivals this weekend and next.
The Pemaquid Oyster Festival is Sunday. Have an adult beverage (or a regular beverage) and slurp down an oyster or a dozen for a good cause.
The Damariscotta Pumpkinfest kicks off with the weigh-offs this weekend. Will Maine pumpkin growers continue to break records in Damariscotta?
You can find details of both events elsewhere in this edition.
Congratulations to the town of Damariscotta on its receipt of a $1 million pledge toward its waterfront improvements. We look forward to the completion of this project.
While we’re at it, congratulations to Sheepscot’s own Brie Wajer, a walk-on to the Villanova Wildcats basketball team. It’s a major accomplishment and Brie offers some great words of inspiration to young athletes.
Don’t forget about our first of three candidates forums ahead of the 2018 general election, at the Wiscasset municipal building from 6-7:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 4.
