Outdoor Track 2014 Season Summary
Outdoor Track 2014 Season Summary
The Eagles capped off their season with a 6th place finish for the Girls and 8th place for the Boys. There were several outstanding individual performances at the KVACs. Kelly Lynch finished first in the 1600 Meters and Justin Pierce and Andrew McCracken won the High Jump and the Pole Vault with Andrew setting a new school record in the process. All these athletes competed at the States and Andrew went on to the New Englands where he finished 9th with another new school record vault of 13-03.
There were more than 60 athletes on the team so there was plenty of depth. Coaches Fournier and Goodwin did a great job bringing this team along with the majority of athletes showing major improvements from season start to season end. You can't ask for more than that.
We'll start with the Throwers. Has it really been four years since Katie Frizzle arrived on the scene and dazzled us with her form, technique, and strength in the Shot Put and Discus. Katie closed out her illustrious career with several first-place finishes during the course of the season and a 5th place finish at the KVACs. Katie was awarded the Outstanding Senior Award at the Spring Sports Awards Night. We will miss Katie, but younger sis Haley proved she will be a suitable replacement and will give us our Frizzle fix for the next three years. She will be joined by McKenzie Weathers, who increased her distance in the Shot every single meet and won the Freshmen states at Waterville. Keep an eye on these two girls. A big shout out to Senior Carly LaVallee, who has been the Eagles top Discus thrower the past several years. Her season was curtailed early in the season when she blew out her shoulder. Abbey Morgan was the other shot putter, but she gained her renown more in the Javelin, where she enjoyed several top five finishes. Jesse Doyle and uber athlete Tori Pelletier also excelled in the Javelin including a 3rd place finish in the KVACs where Tori hurled the jav more than 20 feet
further farther than her previous best. The Jav seemed to be the popular event with Senior Nicole Ross and Lauren Grant both trying their hands at it mid-season and being quite successful.
The Girls enjoyed quite a bit of success in the Jumps. Senior Meaghan O'Leary along with sophomore Brianna Hamilton and freshman Sara Napoleon staged quite an intra-team competition among themselves as they pushed each other to higher heights. All three girls consistently placed in the top 5 in the regular season. Brianna peaked toward the end of the season with a season-best leap of 5-00 feet at the State Championship. In the Pole Vault and the Long Jump, freshman Lauren Labbay was the torch-bearer for the Eagles. Ashley Parker, Alyssa Scannevin, and Emily McCracken drew their silhouettes in the sky in the Pole Vault and multi-talented Nicole Ross performed well in the Long Jump. Lauren Grant displayed her expertise in the Triple Jump all season long. She finished with a season-best leap of 30-10 at the State Championship.
In the Hurdles, let's start with Maggie Broughton (my favorite tuba player!) and thank her for her four years of dedication. Maggie participates for all the right reasons and although she never won any events, she had fun and we all benefited from her quiet enthusiasm. There were a gaggle of youngsters lured into the thrill of the Hurdles - speed, excitement, and technique all rolled into one. Summer Gray combines a unique form of arms and legs akimbo that belies her fluidity and gracefulness that made her the team's top hurdler. The Burch sisters seem intent on dominating both hurdle events and they made steady progress toward that goal. Lauren Grant also exhibited speed, coordination, and mastery in both events.
In the Sprints, Senior Nicole Ross has been turning heads on the track since her freshman year when she was the answer to the question "Who's the girl in the pink shoes?" Nicole reved up her engines one final time and ran her season best time at the KVACs in the 200. Alyssa Scannevin continued to tear up the track and was a consistent point scorer in both the 100 and 200. Ashley Parker and Angle Ortiz also performed well in both events. In the 400, Sophomore Summer Gray showed why she will be an elite runner. She ran a scintillating 1:02 at the State meet, which was three seconds faster than her previous best. Classmate Brianna Hamilton along with freshmen Sara Napoleon and Kathleen MacDonald should provide Summer with plenty of competition in the coming years.
In the distances, three seniors will be leaving us: Alicia Caterina, Emmie Cox, and Kelly Lynch. All three girls are dedicated runners who have all participated in four years of track competition. Alicia has a stride as sweet as her personality. Emmie has been a solid performer over her career and is a team leader with a fun-loving side to her. We will miss the silky smooth stride of Senior Kelly Lynch. Kelly won the KVAC 1600 Meter Championship by lowering her time be almost 20 seconds over her previous best. She went on to shave additional seconds off her time at the State competition where she came in 5th. Kelly was also a force in the 800 and 3200. Kelly was awarded the Coach's Award at the Spring Sports Awards Night. Look for Tori Pelletier, who posted the best time for the Eagles in the 3200, to fill the void next year along with developing runners Lindsey Papa and Rebecca McLaughlin.
Let's start with the throwers seeing how they are usually listed last in the results and often don't get the respect they deserve. Let's start with the seniors first. Caleb Balsar finished out his career with another season of solid performances in all the strength events. He showed contined improvement over the course of the season. Mike Potvin may be the most under appreciated and underrated athlete at Mt Ararat. Tall and lean, Mike excelled in all the throwing events. DeShaun Ulrickson, whose season was cut short by academic difficulties (come on guys, you have to do the work), still was able to qualify for the KVACs. Ben Wade, our top Javelin thrower, and potential KVAC top five choice, was disabled by a broken arm. Ben still provided us with many thrills with his throws and upbeat personality. Dominic Burich was enjoying a fine season till he incurred a severe case of senioritis and chose work over play. Sophomore Kelton Rose laid a strong foundation for future years with a good season in both the Shot and the Discus.
The Boys excelled in the Jumps with two of the top performers in the State. Senior Justin Pierce was consistently clearing 6-00 in the High Jump and showed that his athleticism was not one dimensional. Justin also developed as one of the top 400 runners in the State and qualified for Nationals Sprint Medley at Greensboro NC along with Ty Veno, Stefan Peters, and Hiro Soya. Justin was winner of the Coach's Award at Spring Sports Award Night. Andrew McCracken systematically improved his lofty position by setting a new school record early in the season and then tieing or breaking it four times. His season culminated with another record vault at the New Englands at 13-03. Andrew also excelled in the 100 and 300 Hurdles with a series of first place finishes and a sixth place finish in the 100 Hurdles at the KVACs. Devon Drew, Andrew's wing man, also put up some impressive numbers in the Hurdles and Pole Vault.
In the horizontal jumps, Nick Rancourt and Nick Courant were consistent scorers in the Long Jump and Hiro Soya was a late comer to the event, but made an immediate impression with a team best leap north of 17 feet. Chris Cooper was another late comer to the Triple Jump this spring. Chris won the Freshman States in his first foray at the event.
The Eagles had plenty of depth In the Distance events. Sam Wood was on his way to being one of the top runners in the State, before succumbing to the call of the great outdoors (mountain and rock climbing in the West - no one said that distance runners were normal). Isaac Bradshaw burst onto the scene and developed into one of the premier runners in the KVAC with a 4th place finish at the Championship. His hard work and progress earned him recognition as winner of the Outstanding Senior Award.
Seniors Shea Nelson and Jake Papa enjoyed 12 season's of running under the tutelage of Coach Fournier. They provided a lot of memories. Shea came a long way from the stud muffin he was as a freshmen when they use to toss him in the air as part of the Boys pre-race ritual and Jake Papa displyed varying hair styles during his career. Both Shea and Jake were effective runners who truly epitomize the karma of running for running's sake. Juniors Matt Gott and Steven Johnson both had outstanding seasons and should continue to develop into the elite class next season. T. J Ackerman, Ted Burns, and Eric French provided depth and turned in respectable results over the course of the season. The Eagles had an outstanding freshman class of distance runners. Eagen Eldridge, Chris Cooper, and Cam Meier all made major contributions. Eagen finished second in the 800 Meters and 1600 Meters at the Waterville Freshman Invitational. Chris won the 1600 at the same meet and finished 3rd in the 800. Cam Meier is a competitor who is fun to watch. Chris will be moving out of state next year and we are sure he will succeed wherever he goes. We wish him well.
Moving to the sprints. Senior Ty Veno was the leader of the pack. He closed out a stellar career at 73 Eagles Way with a podium performances at the KVAC. Hiro Soya, a transfer student from Japan, followed up a great Indoor season with an even better Outdoor season. Then we have the trio of Nicks, equally representing the Senior, Junior and Sophomore classes with equal class and style. Alex Halliday, Josh Furgeson, Stefan Peters, William Goller, and Quentin Chard all had good season spanning the 100 to 400 Meters.
The Freshmen speed merchants all showed promise for the future. Justin Milne ran every event from the 100 to the 1600 before focusing on the 300 Hurdles where he showed potential. Jimmy Pelletier, Jacob Burnette, Andy Stratton, and James Soucy all ran well the entire season.
2014 Season Summary
The Girls stitched together one of their best season in recent years. They entered the playoffs seeded 4th and quickly dispatched Bangor 5-0 in the Quarter finals, before losing a close 3-2 match to Hampden in the semis.
The Eagles were led by captains Amy Segars and Izzy Leon. Amy played in the #1 spot all year. Amy relied on her foot speed, positioning, and powerful cross-court forehand for her success. Junior Christine Levesque, the Eagles #2 player, generated astonishing pace on her ground strokes and combined those with deft net play that got her named to the KVAC All Conference team. #3 seed Alison Melcher is a tall, agile talent whose erudite approach to the game leads to excellent shot selection that allows her to control games.
It was so much fun to watch Double partners Eliza Hodge and Priscilla Whitney play together. They were great planners and communicators and definitely seemed to always know where their partner was and what they were thinking. Of course, they were able to combine these intuitive instincts with shot making ability. The second Doubles team consisted of Eva Jensen and Izzy Leon. Their matches were characterized by commitment and concentration.
At the Sports Awards Night ceremony, Coach Bohlin presented the Coach's Award to Eliza Hodge and the Outstanding Senior Award to Izzy Leon.
Also a shout out to Seniors Marie Ring, one of the most multi-talented girls I know, first year player Julia Kaletka, and exchange student Aeysha Siddequel. Hannah Herrick and the Huey sisters gained plenty of experience in exhibition play and look ready to step up next season.

2014 Boys Lacrosse Season Summary
The Boys once again posted a solid season finishing with a 9-5 record. They were seeded fourth in the playoffs and beat Cony 8-5 in one of their best-played games in the Quarterfinals before succumbing to eventual Regional Champion Brunswick in the Semis.
The Eagles were particularly strong and deep on defense. Connor Read had a superlative season in net chock full of ESPN hi-lite reel saves. Connor was also extremely adept at making long and accurate outlet passes that facilitated the transition from defense to offense. Seniors Sean Bolduc, Nick Graney, and Chandler Field formed a formidable back line. Sean had the quickness to stay with the swiftest of attackmen and the speed to outrun them on clears. Nick provided the muscle with his bone-rattling checks and Chandler was one of the best high school defenseman stick handlers I have seen at the high school level. Together, they all combined to form a tight-knit, well-integrated group that communicated well and limited the opposition's opportunities. Long stick mid-fielders Devon Monteiro and Zach Curtis add to the defensive mix with superior speed, good ball-handling skills, and the ability to perform at both ends of the field.
On offense, Jack Mickels switched between his normal midfield position and attack. Jack was the best all-around player on the team. He played all facets of the game well. He could run, change directions, use both hands equally adeptly, pass and shoot. Plus he was aggressive on ground balls and had a little bit of a tiger in him when in a crowd. He ended up leading the Eagles in scoring with a balanced stat sheet of 17 goals and 13 assists. Jordon Castonguay was the prototypical two-way player. He did all the little things that often go unnoticed but contribute to victories. A special shout out, to Nate MacKenzie, a relative new comer to lacrosse, who saw limited playing time. Nate's a great teammate who was appreciated by his mates as they made sure he got a goal against Oxford Hills.
All of these Seniors will be missed.
The Eagles will have to reload next year and it looks like they have the ammo to do it. Charlie Gill looks ready to take over in goal and his enthusiasm and levity will ensure that the games are fun. Mike the Train Tran saw plenty of playing time this year. He is, as Bear Bryant used to say, "mobile, agile, and hostile". He is also intelligent and skilled. Freshman Steven Schuman saw some varsity action this year and has an impressive set of skills. He is a player to watch. Nate Sprague and other members from the JV will be competing for the other defensive positions.
At midfield, Juniors Jake Schoenberg, Kellen Radulski, and Ben Bishop form a solid nucleus for next year. All these players demonstrated speed and stick handling skills in the offensive end as well as tenacity and attitude in the defensive end.
Sophomore Eliot Pressman led a talented group of sophomores. Eliot excelled at face-offs and showed his all around skills at midfield. Eli Timberlake and Deamonte Stupinski also showed flashes of brilliance that will continue to develop. Freshmen Orion Sargent, Hank Gilson, and Nick Cantor all saw significant playing time and should provide a solid foundation at midfield over the coming years.
On attack, Kyle Lussier was the Eagles' leading goal-scorer with 18 goals. He has a laser like shot and a quick release. Freshman Matt Abreu, who was not listed on the Varsity roster at the beginning of the season, took advantage of an opportunity for more playing time and showed he is no shrinking violet. Mark fit right in with the offense and showed poise and skills beyond his years. Kyle Benjamin also provided depth at the attack position and has a bright future.
2014 Boys Tennis Season Summary
The Eagles reached the State Finals for the first time ever. And they did it in the most improbable way. Entering the play-offs with a so-so 7-5 record, and having beaten none of the teams seeded above them, no one would have been disappointed had they lost in the first round. But the Boys reeled off three successive upset victories over #4 seeded Mt Blue, #1-seeded Bangor, and #2-seeded Hampden to win the Eastern Regional Championship. At the State Finals, they lost to Falmouth, a team that sported two of the top players in the State, by a slim 3-2 margin.
Of course, Mt Ararat had its own top player in Nick Mathieu, who spearheaded the Eagles team and lifted his teammates' game over the course of the season. As an incoming freshman, there were expectations of Nick, and as Coach Fournier would say "potential is a heavy burden". Nick more than exceeded the highest expectations with a second place finish in the States Individual Championships and his loss in the Individual Championship were the only two sets he lost all year. Nick's game is not overpowering, but he does everything exceptionally well from set-up to hitting the ball early and moving the ball around. He had a great season and there is no reason to believe that he won't get better.
Mike Crawford, who joined the team last season as a walk-on only because they needed players, has shown what a talented athlete he is. His game continues to improve with solid ground strokes and court positioning. His competitiveness remains his biggest asset. In the #3 slot, Joe Thomas, hoopster and soccer player like Mike, brings height and wing span to the court that translates to court coverage. He has a powerful serve, good movement and shot selection.
It always fun to watch a Doubles team whose members are on the same page. Eric Knight and Trevor Mayo fit that description and bring added shot making abilities to the mix. Paired together about midway through the season, they continued to establish a rapport that carried them through the play-offs without losing a set. They were a big reason for the Eagles success. Jon Roux and Joey Reed, the #2 Doubles team continued to improve and they gained valuable seasoning and playoff experience.
Damien Eddings and Hudson Bird saw a lot of exhibition play and they are waiting in the wings to move up to varsity play next year.

2014 Season Summary
The Girls season ended with a 9-8 loss to #2 ranked Messalonskee in the Quarter Finals. The game was a microcosm of the Girls' season. Although the Girls ended up with a 6-7 record, two of the losses were by one goal, one was by two goals, and two more were by three goals. Parity has arrived in the KVAC Girls Lacrosse.
Let's start with a nod to the seniors. Sierra Gilley, the undersized, over-achiever, was the Eagles' leading scorer with 34 goals and 11 assists. She is a clever stick-handler, can play right or left-handed, and she has an accurate shot. She is the team leader on and off the field. Carly Raymond was the Eagles second leading scorer with 30 goals and 9 assists. She is a three-year starter and owner of a star-studded resume that includes many game tieing and game winning goals in Field Hockey, Hockey, and Lacrosse. She has always stepped up when the team needed her most most most. They even named a TV show after her - Everyone Loves Raymond. Both Sierra and Carly were named to the All Conference 1st team. Libby Davis is a girl who is ahead of her time and plays the game the way it will be played ten years from now. Meaning a game where defense is allowed and physicality is part of the game. In the meantime, we just have to enjoy her all out style of play and her friendly personality. Bailey Sullivan was egregiously overlooked as an All-Conference selection. I don't understand how because she had one of the best seasons a goalkeeper could possibly have. She has quick reactions, solid positioning, speed, and great outlet passing. She Bailed out the Eagles in several games and was directly responsible for stealing a game or two. She will be missed. She is smart too and was named to the All Academic team.
Connie Hodge was a stalwart on the back-line throughout the season. Connie along with Danielle Palmer and Danielle Krause, was named to the All Academic team. Danielle Palmer was winner of the Outstanding Senior award and Danielle Krause received the Colin Roy Award. Ashlyn Black and Samantha Hamilton saw limited playing time but had fun and were valued teammates.
Rebecca (She's Only) Schuman style of play is reminiscent of a whirling dervish - aggressive, relentless, pesky - oh yeah, and effective. She was a catalyst at midfield and led the Eagles in assists. Her personality can best described as a Human Hallmark card. Alison Nolan brings her hockey-playing persona with her to the Lacrosse field. She has an edge to her game to go along with her competitive enthusiasm and her fun-loving nature. She was a leading scorer on attack and will be a team leader next year. Kaitlyn Volk has an impish quality about her that belies her aggressive style of play on defense. Always smiling, she has the ability to move the ball quickly from defense to offense as well as shut down the opponent's attack. She was the recipient of the Coach's Award that was given out at the Spring Awards banquet. Savannah Parry saw limited action this year, but should contribute added depth next year. I love Laren Williams' game. She is a hard worker, a field leader, and a girl who gets the most out of her extensive abilities. She is fun to watch play.
The Eagles were generally a young team and play of the sophomore and freshman classes should bode well for next season and beyond. Erin Tome is a multi-talented athlete who showed hints of dominating skills - speed, mobility, agility, stick-handling and shot making. Eva (G-Line) Jerome immediately stood out for her command of lacrosse fundamentals. She was excellent on ground balls and has speed, ball control, and shooting abilities. Jordan Chase made an impression last year as a freshman and she continued to develop this year. She has that intuitive lacrosse know-how that you can not teach. Ronni Pelletier is a budding star who gained valuable experience as a swing player between Varsity and JV. Eleanor Skinner has big shoes to fill with the departure of Bailey Sullivan, but Coach Chard did a nice job of easing her into varsity games as well as being the regular JV starter. She looks more than capable of stepping up.
I guess it's obvious that if you are on the Varsity as a freshman, you are a pretty talented athlete. That's true, but it's still amazing that Anna Manuel, with no prior lacrosse experience, was able to step up and be a consistent, reliable starter on defense. Besides relying on her athleticism, Anna is a student of the game and has an intuitive understanding of positioning and is technically sound in the fundamentals. I don't see her future on defense, but taking a more active role on offense in coming years. Magan Copland-Thomas is tall, strong, and athletic. She was outstanding on face-offs and should be a potent force on the crease. Yes. Plant her there and get her the ball - Unstoppable! Finally Isa Blessington saw more and more playing time as the season progressed because her play deserved it.
2014 Baseball Season Summary
Coach Bob Neron was pleased with the effort his team put forth in a season that ended with a 2-14 season. Despite their record, the players remained upbeat and worked hard. The Eagles were a team filled with
characters character. They had a solid pitching staff, but struggled at times at the plate. The hi-lite of the season was a 7-4 win over #1 ranked Messalonskee. Kevin (Magna) Carter pitched an outstanding game and had a great overall season both on the mound and at the plate.
Let's start with a nod to the seniors. Griffin Stockford III and Bru Abreu provide strength through the middle. Bru had a rocket for an arm and he gunned down many a runner trying to steal a base. Grif played a solid center field and had a nice stroke at the plate. Bru, whose first name is actually Michael, along with Elison Etnier, were named to the All Academic team. Elison split duties on the mound and in the outfield and delivered some key hits along the way. Dakota D'Orio and Riley Kons, two free thinkers for sure, provided some effective innings for the Eagles. Riley was an effective junk-baller while Dakota relied on smoke. Riley also took a regular turn at the hot corner where he fielded impeccably and had some pop in his bat. Caleb Hall and Zack Miller saw limited action, but provide good depth on the bench, not to mention some needed levity.
The Eagles have a solid base for next year with returning juniors Liam Brannigan, Kevin Carter, and Dylan Johnson. All three are talented offensively and defensively and all have lively arms. Sophomore Harper Moutal had a successful year with some big hits. He has power to all fields and can play multiple positions (although not all at the same time). Two freshman vied for rookie of the Year honors. Jacob O'Neill showed poise beyond his years on the mound and Cam Cox was probably born wearing a baseball cap and glove. Both are talented athletes with unlimited potential.

2014 Softball Season Summary
The Softball team fielded a very young team with only two seniors and a bevy of freshmen. They ended up with a 4-14 record. They were on the giving and receiving end of several mercy-ruling games as well as some tightly-contested games. There were some flashes of defensive brilliance and solid play as well as some costly defensive lapses. The pitching was of high quality and the innings widely (and wisely) distributed. At times, the bats showed some pop and at times they went plop. First season co-coaches Allen Graffam and Brooke Cox showed that job sharing is a workable model. All the girls got to play and most of them got to play multiple positions. There was plenty to like about this season and, if experience is an effective teacher, the future looks bright.
First, let's give a nod to our seniors. Devon Hutchins, a three-year starter, was the Eagles leading hitter with a .392 average. She also led the team with 10 stolen bases while playing a stalwart third base and shortstop. She was selected to the All Conference 2nd team and received the Outstanding Senior Award at Sports Award night. Along with Kim Leslie, she was a true team leader. Kim was also a three-year starter. For the past two years, she had pitched every inning of every game for the Eagles. This year she got some relief from some freshman hurlers whom she graciously helped develop. When she wasn't pitching, she was playing a solid second base and delivering some key hits throughout the season. Kim was selected as the recipient of the Coaches Award at the Sports Awards Banquet. A special mention goes to Hannah Reis, a junior who graduated a year early. She emerged as a premier player this year with appearances behind the plate and in the outfield. She was a catalyst on the base paths and ended up second on the team in stolen bases. Good luck to these girls. You will be missed.
Piper Ingle played a mean center field and can flash the leather with the best of them. She improved markedly at the plate from last year, and there is every reason to suspect she will hit better next year. The first thing you notice about Maggie Vaillancourt is that she has a major league stretch - and she knows how to use it. The pitchers have got to love her for it. She saw more and more playing time as the season progressed and displayed some power in her bat. Maddy Wade, Abby Andreasen, Chelsea Scharold were all victims of the numbers game, but they all proved themselves to be valuable bench players and supportive teammates.
Sophomore Maddy Alexander returned after a solid freshman year and suffered from a mild case of the sophomore slump. But she is a player and she should return strong next year. Sara Lamb played her first varsity season and was a team leader on the field and on the bench. She played a solid second base and shortstop and her bat started coming around toward season end.
There was an outstanding sextet of freshmen who all made major contributions while gaining varsity on-the-job training. All are versatile, all-around talents who can pitch, hit, field, and run. They make the next three years of softball look very enticing. Let's start with Alana Weaver. Alana is a wisp of a girl who looks like a strong wind might blow her over. Her appearance belies her whip-like arm, her smooth delivery, and her ability to challenge hitters by mixing fastballs with off speed stuff. She pitched the majority of innings for the Eagles this year. She also totes a pretty healthy bat and can play in the outfield when not pitching. Rhiannon Hersey made an impression in Field Hockey with her athleticism and it showed on the diamond. Coaches Graffam and Cox developed her slowly, but their patience payed off as she pitched effectively and ended up with some good at bats and showed some power. Samantha Gonyea also came along slowly, but she showed her versatility and a very respectable bat. Sam can play first base or the outfield and shows promise of speed, power, and range.
Finally, there is the dynamic duo of Katelyn Cox and Kate Guerin. If you don't know who these girls are, you haven't been paying attention. Both can leap tall buildings in a single (well, maybe two) bound, The represent the yin and the yang of this team. Katelyn is the prototypical scrappy, competitive hustler and Kate has the more laid-back, nonchalant attitude that exudes her "No big deal - I can do this" state of mind. Beneath their veneers, they are both extremely talented and competitive. Only 279 days until Spring training!

Senior Girls Cross Country Video Tribute
Here is a long overdue video tribute for the Senior Girl Members of the 2013 Cross Country Team.
April 12, 2014 - Batting Cages Opened
Saturday morning, the volunteers and members of the Mt Ararat Baseball team christened the new batting cages that greet students and visitors as they drive along Eagles Way en route to the High School campus. The cages are a joint venture between local businesses and volunteers who provided financial help, materials, and sweat equity to get the cages built.
Parent volunteers and financial contributors Jeff Kelly and Mike Moody had the deserved honor of throwing the first pitches to their sons Cole and Garret respectively. The crack of the bats resonated over the field and signified the true arrival of spring on a beautiful sunny day.
A big thank you to Atlantic Regional Credit Union, Enterprise Electric, Downeast Energy and Hancock Lumber for their generous support. The cages are open for use by the public.
