Cancelled: August 23 Community Block Party Supporting Meals on Wheels in Lincoln County
|Aug 23, 2013|
Due to unforeseen circumstances, Spectrum Generations (your Central Maine Area Agency on Aging and Aging and Disability Resource Center) has had to make a very difficult decision regarding the Old Fashioned Community & Neighborhood Block Party that was scheduled to take place on August 23 from 5:30 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. This event has been cancelled. The Coastal team offers its apologies to community members who had planned on attending in support of the Meals on Wheels program in Lincoln County as well as the resources which are needed in order for us to continue to provide quality programs, services and activities to area residents across the generations. With thanks and appreciation to the three community members, although wishing to remain anonymous, who sponsored the block party advertisement, event necessities, and who were going to provide funding for the Breakers Jazz Band. Additionally the Coastal team would like to thank Camden National Bank for being willing to loan us their popcorn machine, Colby & Gale for being willing to loan us their fundraising van, Darling’s whose fundraising ice cream truck was going to make an appearance at this community event and Sheepscot Valley Brewing Company, Sweet Grass Winery and Savage Oaks Winery from whom the beer and wine would have been purchased.
. As a result of sequestration for the first time in its 40 year history, Spectrum Generations has instituted a waiting list for Meals on Wheels recipients. Seventeen Lincoln County residents are currently on this list. A $720 contribution to Meals on Wheels will pay for Meals on Wheels for one of these individuals for a period of 6-months. At the end of the 6-month period the person that a community member or organization sponsored will continue to receive their meals no matter how long the waiting list has grown. “So No Senior Goes Hungry”, this is your opportunity to provide 5-nutritous meals to a homebound community member who just might be a neighbor or yours.
For community members who are still interested in supporting Lincoln County’s Meals on Wheels and Community Dining programs as well as the other services and resources that Spectrum Generations Coastal Community Center contributes to the health and wellbeing of aging and disabled individuals, the caregivers, neighbors and friends who live in the Central Maine communities that Spectrum Generations services donations can be mailed to: Spectrum Generations Coastal Community Center, 521 Main Street in Damariscotta, 04543.
