Medicare Patrol Volunteers Cut Fraud and Waste

Want to provide an invaluable service to your community? Join Spectrum Generations volunteer Senior Medicare Patrol team and make a difference by cutting down on Medicare fraud and abuse. 

Spectrum Generations, in collaboration with Legal Services for the Elderly, is holding its next 3-day Senior Medicare Patrol training from 8am to 2pm on Thursdays, August 7, 14 and 28 at Spectrum Generations Southern Midcoast ADRC Center located at 35 Union Street in Brunswick (with-in the PeoplePlus building).

This “train the trainer” workshop will give you the tools you need to teach people how to navigate the complex Medicare system and prepare you to do public presentations, provide individualized counseling on Medicare Part D, and in general educate the public about Medicare fraud and abuse.  Breakfast snacks and refreshments will be served,  but we ask that you “brown bag it” for lunch.

Moosehead Lake Yacht Club Sponsoring Centennial Boat Show

Events that occur every 100 years are rare but when they are in your area, they are NOT to be missed!

Come to Greenville the weekend of August 15-16 and help us celebrate the 100th birthday of the SS Katahdin, oldest product of Bath Iron Works that is still in service.  She proudly serves as the centerpiece of the Moosehead Marine Museum's mission as well as the flagship of the Moosehead Lake Yacht Club.

The Moosehead Lake Yacht Club is sponsoring the Centennial Boat Show featuring Katahdin as a 100 year old vessel and inviting any other boats/canoes to come to Moosehead Lake to participate in our Centennial Boat Show and receive special recognition.  It is expected that we will have many antique boats on display as we have previously enjoyed during our Bi-Annual Antique Boat Show, but with some centennial gems as well, floating or on a trailer.

"Little Italy" Monument Dedication

There may be hundreds of "Little Italys" across the nation and across the world, but for Millinocket folks who bear such familiar Italian names as Manzo or Colangelo or Brigalli or DiCentes or Pasquine, there is only one "Little Italy" - the one that began in 1899 on Prospect St. and York St. in Millinocket - the "Little Italy" that now lives on mostly in peoples' memories.

This week, fourth generation Millinocket descendants of the original Italian laborers, brick layers and masons, whose back breaking labor built Millinocket's Great Northern Paper mill, will gather to celebrate their heritage and to honor their fore bearers with a special dedication ceremony at 10 a.m., on Saturday July 5, at the Millinocket Cemetery.
