The Mid-Coast Recovery Coalition, whose mission is to reduce the rates of drug addiction and its consequences in Midcoast Maine, is hosting its inaugural Disc Golf Classic Sunday, June 18, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Samoset Resort. This event is being held to help “build community” though social activities, bring more public attention to this public health crisis in our neighborhoods, and help raise needed funds for MCRC to fulfill its mission.

Participants will enjoy light-hearted disc golf competition with teams to see who will win the top three prizes (a fully assembled gas grill donated by Home Depot will go to the first-place winner). An experienced guide will teach newbies how to play the game.

Fun activities for children of all ages will be offered and fresh pizza will be cooked and served by Kerry Altiero, owner of Café Miranda. Music will be provided by Blind Albert. Attendance is free to the public.

To play a round of disc golf, participants 12 years and older will be charged $7 per person. All proceeds will go to MCRC. For more information, call 701-1182 or email
