EAC Island Institute Fellow Tarah Waters will be hosting a new program for youth this winter at Eastport Arts Center. On the third Saturday of each month, the group will meet to do a food activity and watch a movie. Movies chosen will all have a connection with a book, so that families can read the stories before or after the screenings. Each featured book will be available at Peavey Memorial Library in Eastport. For the December meeting, to be held Saturday, December 16 from 10 am to 1 pm, the group will do a cookie making activity, enjoy hot cocoa and watch The Polar Express.
Event is by suggested donation of $2/person. For more information, email Tarah at email@example.com. The Eastport Arts Center is at 36 Washington Street, Eastport and is handicapped accessible. Please visit us at eastportartscenter.org to learn more.
Just in time for the holiday season is the Dickens’ classic, A Christmas Carol. As a staged reading it features readers from Machiasport to Eastport. In the spirit of the story and time of year, all proceeds will benefit three area food pantries: The Garrapy Food Pantry of Eastport, the Lubec Community Food Pantry, and the Campobello food bank.
Director Sarah Dalton Phillips says, “I love Charles Dickens for his humanity, humour and ability to tell wonderful stories. I also feel that the thesis of A Christmas Carol -- we are all human beings of value who really ought to take better care of each other -- is especially important in this age and at this time of year.”
