Veteran’s Day Program

On Thursday, Nov. 11, at the Waldoborough Historical Society, community members are invited to attend the annual Veteran’s Day program at 10:30 a.m., to salute all veterans who have served our country over the years.

The 100th anniversary of the Unknown Soldier Memorial, established in Washington D.C., will be observed, and the names of well-known citizens of Waldoboro who became a part of General George Washington’s Personal Guard at Valley Forge will be listed.

Waldoboro veterans Kyle Santheson and Jan Griesenbrock will complete the recognition by tolling the bell for one minute for all who lost their lives, and they will ring it for two minutes for all who served and returned home.

The Armistice signed after WWI is a long-remembered date from their study of American history, and is often characterized by the words, “the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.”

Though many years have passed since the day of that signing, many Americans still remember the numbers of citizens who “gave their all for all of us.”

Join other Waldoboro citizens in this observance.

Island Institute online event: Superpowers of Seaweed 

The Island Institute in Rockland will host an online event Nov. 17, from 6-7 p.m.

In Maine, marine biologists investigate a way to protect shellfish from the damage caused by one of the lesser-known consequences of climate change, namely, the rising level of carbon dioxide in the ocean.

CO2 makes seawater more acidic and damages shells. Their experiment is to raise mussels in close proximity to seaweed, which takes CO2 out of ocean water.

Sam Belknap will be the moderator, with Susie Arnold (Island Institute), Nichole Price (Bigelow) and Bri Warner (Atlantic Sea Farms) on the panel.
