Sixth-grade girls are raising worms, specifically Red Wriggler Worms that eat the bacteria that grows on decaying fruit. The girls have been collecting uneaten fruit and peels from middle school students and teachers left over from snack time. The fruit is weighed, cut up and put into worm bins kept in the science room. So far nearly 42 pounds of food that would have gone to waste has gone to feed the Red Wigglers, which then turn it into compost. If you’d be interested in some of these worms for composting at home contact science teacher, Mrs. Stevick at nancy_stevick@fivetowns.net.

Library’s Sneak Peek

At Lincolnville Community Library’s first event last week, Henry Lunn presented a re-enactor’s story of Benedict Arnold’s March on Quebec, which was followed by an energetic, toe-tapping fiddle and mandolin playing duo – Velocipede. The house was packed, which in this case means just about 50 people, the building was warm, light, and inviting, and the flush was, well, flushing. Imagine what that represents in money raised, in engineering a difficult parcel of land, and all the work of many townspeople and tradesmen, most working for nothing -- it's amazing. And, by the way, at no cost to the town. The library will officially open the first week in February.
