Shared Bounty community garden in Dexter needs volunteer help.
Not only is this a busy time for YOU as the winter grudgingly gives way to a Spring (of sorts) and we dash around trying to get plants into the ground, but the large community garden in Dexter also needs help. Saturday mornings from 8 to 11, the small band of volunteers who grow the vast array and amount of food for free distribution to area seniors all season long invest their sweat and love into the project, and could happily use assistance in weeding, planting, harvesting, bagging and any other of the myriad chores involved. Please consider coming on any Saturday morning even for a short time to lend a hand.  The garden is on Rt 23 at Fred Sherburne’s place on the Ripley road just a mile or so South out of Dexter, on the left side of the road going up the big hill; you can’t miss the sign.  Call for more info:  Deb Burdin 924-6538, John Gornall 924-5232

July 1, 2016 – First Friday Film at 7 to 9 PM public discussion on “The role of civil disobedience to change unethical laws” at the Abbott Memorial Library in Dexter.
Just because a law is legal does not mean it’s just or ethical.  For instance it used to be legal to own another human being.  It used to be legal to deny women to vote.  It used to be legal to deny civil rights to people because of their skin color.  These laws were changed when enough people decided that they were not right and rose up to force the change.
It is currently legal for corporations to have more influence on the political system in the USA than individual citizens.  These corporate influences have dramatic effects on our environment, economy, and self-determination.
Laws are created by people and can be changed by people once there’s enough will to make it happen.  But when the legal deck is stacked against the individual, how can individuals make a difference? Civil Disobedience is an American response to such a condition.  We will briefly look at the history of this method of protest, then open the facilitated discussion to see how it may apply to our present day situations. Please join us! 277-4221 for more information.

August 6, 2016 – The Dexter Sunrise Kiwanis Club will be holding its 2nd Annual Cruise-In on Saturday, from 4:30 PM TO 8:00 PM in the Municipal Parking Lot behind the Bangor Savings Bank on Main Street, Dexter. Rain date will be August 27th.  Proceeds will benefit the many Kiwanis activities in our area.  There will be music, food & non-alcoholic drink and of course, “doughboys”!  The event will feature “The Wildwoods Band” and our super “DJ”.  Contributions will be $5 per car (occupants free) and $2 for walk-ins.  Proceeds support our Kiwanis programs and activities.
Although classic car owners’ personalities are as varied as their prized possessions themselves, there are certain attributes like commitment, respect and even curiosity that make ownership less daunting and better able to meet the challenges of such ownership.  After all, these vintage vehicles are frequently older than their owners and need lots of TLC.
So come and have a blast and meet ALL the “personalities” at our second annual Dexter Kiwanis Cruise-In on August 6th 4:30 PM to 8:00 PM in the Municipal parking Lot, Rain Date August 27th.
