PENQUIS - From 10 to 11 AM Saturday morning April 14, Dexter Dover Area Towns in Transition (DDATT) will host a skill-sharing event at the Abbott Memorial Library in Dexter on the basics of sharpening a chain saw. When you understand the geometry of a chainsaw tooth and how it works in concert will all its neighbors, you can do a better job in keeping it sharp. And when it’s sharp, the saw works so much better, relieving stress on your body.
Usually sawchain is sharpened while on the saw, but participants to this free workshop should leave their saws at home (the Library is not a place for oily and odiferous motors) and bring their dull chains (and bars), appropriate files, filing gizmos, patience, and good humor to learn and share knowledge about this important rural tool. (If you have a small, clamp-on vice to bring, that’d be greatly appreciated.)
As DDATT’s mission is to help our area reduce our use of fossil fuels and create a more stable rural economy, we are committed to skills and ideas which can help us all take better care of our natural resources.
For more information on DDATT and future events, email firstname.lastname@example.org to get on email news list, or call 277-4221 or 924-3836.

DOVER-FOXCROFT - Pine Tree Hospice and The Maine Humanities Council are sponsoring a FREE family movie with popcorn and water on Sunday, April 8th at 2:00 pm at the Center Theater in Dover-Foxcroft.
We Bought a Zoo is charming and very sweet family film loosely based on a memoir by Benjamin Mee, who must rebuild his life after the untimely death of his wife. Matt Damon plays a widowed father who purchases a dilapidated zoo and rises to the difficult task of remaking it with his 2 children - his 7 year old daughter and teenage son. Along with an eccentric staff and animals, it’s the perfect place for Benjamin and his children to learn to be a family again without their mother.
Grief resources and materials will be available by Pine Tree Hospice, SeDoMoCha and Thompson Free Library for those interested.
For more information, please call Pine Tree Hospice at 564-4346 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
