Silent Art Auction to beneift students at Traip

thCAIGQLMHSILENT ART AUCTION AT THE MORGAN GALLERY TO BENEFIT TRAIP ACADEMY ART STUDENTS

 

 

More than 100 beautiful, framed watercolors by Louise Whelton are currently on display
in the Morgan Art Gallery at the Kittery Community Center.   This special exhibit is a “rolling silent auction” to benefit art students at Traip Academy : after viewing them, the public can place a bid at the Center front desk to purchase any of the works.  The auction/exhibit, which opened on April 14, will culminate on May 7 with a final  viewing and bidding from 6 to 6:45 pm, after which  the public is invited on an “art walk” from  the Kittery Community Center to  Traip Academy, where the winning bids will be announced.  

Kittery Adult Education, which is sponsoring the Whelton exhibit, hopes to raise $6000
to  create a scholarship for  Traip students interested in pursuing higher education studies in visual art.

While Louise Whelton had a natural talent for art, she attributed her ‘fine tuned’ skills to
the years of art lessons she took with Doris Rice of Kittery Adult Education, and Rhonda
Mann of Marshwood Adult & Community Education. According to friend Judith
Killen, Louise’s art “blossomed” with the coaxing of these instructors, who she considered her mentors. In spring 2013, just prior to her death, Louise demonstrated her appreciation for her instructors by donating her art to Kittery Adult Education. The funds raised by this Silent Art Auction will allow others to further their love of art through college and graduate studies.  

 

Kittery Adult Education is part of statewide system of connected learning programs and centers Kittery to Fort Kent, and offers its classes and programs at Traip Academy, 12 Williams Road.

What happened at the Council

agendaThe topics discussed at the meeting were;

Town ownership of John Paul Jones Park took another step forward recently, when the state sent a draft maintenance agreement for the town to review.

Town Manager Nancy Colbert Puff informed the KitteryTown Council on Monday night that she has received an agreement from the Maine Bureau of Parks and Land which is part of the process for Kittery to take over the Park They have managed it since 1999.

Maine Department of Transportation has owned the park since 1923 when it was part of the land acquired in the original Memorial Bridge project.

In January 2014, the Maine department of Transportation gave up its right to refuse transfer of ownership. Hopefully the process will be complete by January 2015.

The Manager updated the status of the old homestead building demolition and the security fence around the perimeter has been installed.

Preliminary approval of the Kittery School Department Budget was granted and set MAY 12th, 2014 for a public hearing.

In order to provide paving work along Route 103 as well as sidewalks along rte 103  in the future. The Town Council voted to allow the Town Manager to apply for a $650,000 federal grant. It is scheduled to be awarded in fiscal year 2017. It is for paving work along Route 103.

Kittery’s match for this grant would be $65.000. This represents 10% of the 650.000 dollar grant from the Federal Government to improve our roads.

3. Fill out the contest entry form and upload your bad road photo. (You can also send your entry, including photo to FixMaineRoads@MBTAonline.org).

From the News

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) – Maine residents can now enter a contest to find the worst road in the state for a cash prize – and serious bragging rights.

The Maine Better Transportation Association says photos and a brief description can be submitted through its website for the Worst Road in Maine Contest. Nominations that began in early April are accepted through May 15.

The association says potholes and frost heaves make state roads some of the worst in the nation. Executive Director Maria Fuentes says the prize of $296 is how much the average Mainer spends on car repairs due to poor roads.

Route 141 in Waldo County won the last contest in 2011. The nominee blamed the uneven road for aggravating her son’s back condition by causing severe pain.

Thank you to the citizens of Kittery

thCASUNNY4Thank you to citizens of Kittery, from a member of the USS Thresher family
 
April 12, 2014 2:00 AM

April 10 — To the Editor:

As I approached the Kittery traffic circle the other day, the first thing that caught my eye was the large American flag snapping smartly in a stiff breeze. The flag was illuminated by the morning sun from behind and it gave the flag an ethereal and translucent appearance. “Beautiful,” I thought.

Upon reaching the traffic circle, I was immediately struck by the solemn yet graceful granite markers engraved in large dark letters that read “USS Thresher.” Respectful and stark at the same moment, it caused me to take a deep breath.

After exiting the traffic circle, I looked over my shoulder toward Kittery Town Hall and saw the beautiful stonework with a replica of the USS Thresher on it at the Memorial Park. I thought to myself, “Wow, they actually pulled it off, our very own memorial.”

After the loss of the Thresher, my family stayed in the Seacoast and that is where I grew up. Every year, April 10 is a day of somber remembrance for those who were lost aboard USS Thresher. This date has a particular impact on the families who lost a loved one, for the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard workers and for the U.S. Navy submarine veterans.

As a young boy, then a teenager, eventually a young man, and now as an adult, there was never a monument where we could go to on April 10 to place flowers and acknowledge their sacrifice. Now we have such a place.

I would like to thank the members of the USS Thresher Memorial Committee for their dogged determination, skilled diplomacy and resiliency in the face of adversity. Your steadfastness brought this respectful and fitting tribute to life and is a great honor to those who were lost aboard USS Thresher. I would also like to express my sincere gratitude to all those who donated their time or their money to bring this to fruition. It was through private fund-raising that the monies were derived for this memorial site.

How fitting that this memorial is in Kittery. For it was in Kittery that the plans for Thresher were first laid down. It was in Kittery the Thresher was built. It was in Kittery that she was launched and commissioned and, finally, it was from the dockside in Kittery that the USS Thresher cast off her mooring lines for the last time and headed to sea on what would be her final journey.

On behalf of the family members of the USS Thresher, I say a heartfelt thank you to the citizens of Kittery for allowing this memorial tribute to grace your town.

Program targets weekend hunger

Students receive backpacks of food

dmcdermott@seacoastonline.com
April 29, 2012 2:00 AM

There are, said Kittery, Maine, resident Pauli Rines, children in town living “under the radar” — children so poor and so in need that they regularly go without food from school lunch Friday to school breakfast Monday.

In fact, in a school population of slightly more than 1,000, 62 students — or about 8 percent — fall into this category. Teachers, cafeteria staff, counselors and nurses know them from their Monday morning lethargy, or their quickness to lash out, even as their stomachs rumble.

“Everyone is amazed that there is this issue in Kittery,” said Rines, former director of Kittery Adult Education. “Some of these children are homeless, some come from grinding poverty. Yet few people have really paid attention to them.”

Until now, that is.

Rines and fellow Kittery resident Kris Lynes are coordinating an ever-increasing circle of town service organizations, churches and businesses united in making sure these students are properly fed each weekend.

They have joined End 68 Hours of Hunger, a Dover-based nonprofit organization started by retired Navy Lt. Cmdr. Claire Bloom last year. So far, there are programs in Dover, Somersworth and Kittery, and programs will soon begin in Eliot, South Berwick and Old Orchard Beach, Maine, and Rochester and Wakefield.

Bloom said she became aware of these quietly hungry children when her book group discussed a book about a highly impoverished area of the country in the fall of 2010. A member who’s a Dover teacher said, “‘We have them here, too. On the weekends, we have children who have nothing to eat.’”

Her response was identical to that of Rines, who heard about End 68 Hours of Hunger when Bloom spoke last fall to the Kittery Rotary Club: “How can that be?”

Bloom said she began to do research and found there were other organizations in the country that had recognized this same need. The model she settled on was what she called “the backpack model.”

Each Thursday, a group of volunteers gathers and readies backpacks full of food that are delivered to the school or schools on Friday morning for distribution to students identified by the school staff. The backpacks themselves are nondescript, in grays and blacks to ensure a boy doesn’t get a pink backpack, for instance.

End 68 Hours of Hunger began in the Dover school system last fall and Bloom said it’s met with great success.

“Here’s the interesting thing; it’s an invisible program,” she said. “A child may be ridiculed for saying, ‘Daddy lost his job and we don’t have any food,’ and they quickly learn not to say anything. So the only way you know is by being vigilant and watching these kids.

“The school cafeteria workers see kids come in for breakfast Monday morning, and silently eat every bit of food before them, then turn to their neighbor and say, ‘Are you going to eat that?’ That’s when you know.”

Immediately after Bloom spoke to the Kittery Rotary, Rines picked up the baton and ran with it. Rotary president Brad Hirst, minister of the Second Christian Congregational Church in Kittery, contacted local ministers and asked for help. From that, came not only volunteers and donations, but the First Baptist Church of Kittery Point offered space for workers to store the food and staples for the backpacks.

The Lions Club joined the Rotary in pledging funds and helpers, Kennebunk Savings Bank gave them a free checking account and grant funding, Home Depot in Portsmouth donated all the shelving and bins for the food, Timberland donated backpacks.

Last Monday, Town Councilor Gary Beers donated his councilor’s stipend to the program, saying, “For our own kids in our own town, this is a truly admirable effort.”

“Things come from everywhere,” Rines said. “You just never know.”

The program started only a few months ago and is beginning small, with nine backpacks feeding 14 students — some include food for a sibling. The students are all at the Mitchell Primary School, as it was determined the need for nourishing food is most acute for younger children.

The backpacks typically contain peanut butter, jelly, individual boxes of low-sugar cereal or oatmeal, fruit cups, fruit juice boxes, tubes of crackers, canned soup and pasta, nutrition bars and tuna or chicken in a can.

Teachers report seeing a difference in the children on Monday, and the students “just love it,” said Mitchell Principal David Foster.

“They’re very proud to be bringing that backpack home on the weekends,” he said. “It’s food. It’s great. They’re hungry and they’re helping their family. And, we as a school, are very thankful we have hungry kids eating meals on the weekends.”

School Superintendent Allyn Hutton said the students who are being helped by End 68 Hours of Hunger are receiving two messages, both equally important. The first is, you will not have to spend the weekend going hungry.

The second: “People care about you,” she said. “They have that intrinsic knowledge that someone cares. These kids may not always be getting that message.”

The group plans to expand to Shapleigh Middle School next fall, but as students get older they become a lot more self-conscious, Hutton said.

In fact, of the 62 students identified, most are at Traip Academy. Those students, she said, will view the backpacks in a different light than their elementary-school counterparts.

“I anticipate it will become more difficult as they become older,” Hutton said. “The older students are more sensitive to what their peers think about them.”

For instance, many teens refuse to participate in the free- and reduced-lunch program because they don’t want their classmates to know their home circumstances.

“By the time we get to that level, we’re going to have to come up with different strategies,” she said.

But overall, she said she’s thrilled that the program has started in Kittery and believes it will pay off in a big way in the years to come.

“My opinion is that this has made a big difference in the short amount of time we’ve had it,” she said. “It’s time to take care of these students.”
