Cash Mob in Camden!

Cash Mob in Camden!

Camden, Maine will hold its first Cash Mob on Monday August 20th at 4:30PM in the Village Green.  Participants will learn at that time which store is being “mobbed” and then proceed to shop at that business.  Camden Development Director, Brian Hodges, first created the Facebook page for Cash Mob Camden on Friday July 27th and within 2 weeks, nearly 200 Likes have been acquired.  “I’m so pleased with the level of support and enthusiasm being shown for this.  Cash mobs have been successfully held in other parts of Maine, and around the world, so it seemed like a natural fit for Camden to start one in this region of midcoast Maine.”

Cash mob is a new trend in which people use social media to plan organized events, providing a way to join together and support local businesses.

The 80th Anniversary Season at the Ogunquit Playhouse kicks off with Always, Patsy Cline

The 80th Anniversary Season at the Ogunquit Playhouse kicks off with Always, Patsy Cline, on stage from May 23 through June 16. This show is told through the letters of star-struck fan Louise Seger, portrayed by Emmy Award winning actress, Sally Struthers. This popular musical, which has enjoyed great success both off-Broadway and across the nation, is based on the true story of Cline’s friendship with Seger, who befriended the star in a Texas honky-tonk in l961 and continued a correspondence with Cline until her death. Featuring the unforgettable hits of the Country Music mega-star, this funny and touching tribute celebrates the career and life of the singer who died tragically in a plane crash in 1963.

Better Than an Advent Calendar: Elf on the Shelf

Better Than an Advent Calendar: Elf on the Shelf

We were visited by a pixie elf the day after Thanksgiving this year. It’s the third year in a row he’s showed up. His name is Elfie.

My oldest son, G, named the elf. He was sent to us by Santa Claus himself. He comes every year the day after Thanksgiving. He’s even made appearances in New York City and Massachusetts when we were traveling for the holidays.

If you haven’t figured it out. I’m talking about Elf on the Shelf.

The rules are simple.
