Woodlot owners in Maine manage their land for several different reasons: aesthetics, firewood, maintaining health and value, recreation, wildlife and forest products. This 5-week class, sponsored by the Maine Forest Service, will help you define your goals and make decisions on how to sustainably manage your woodlot for years to come. The class is being presented by Adam Cates, District Forester for Maine Forest Service. We will discuss forest management plans, tree identification, how forests grow, forest health, and options for timber harvesting. Guest speakers will also address topics such as wildlife habitat, non-timber forest products, working with loggers and foresters, and other information and assistance available for small woodland owners. Speakers and handouts will provide landowners with contacts and resources for future assistance. There will also be an optional field trip to visit a managed woodlot. Adam Cates is a District Forester for the Maine Forest Service, serving Piscataquis and northern Somerset county.

In both sessions, we will follow techniques that allow you to accomplish a lot in much less time than you ever imagined. Forget about thoughts of “I don’t have time” or “I’m not creative” and we’ll just do it! Memory Keeping books make great gifts, or keep it for yourself! Please bring your own scissors and wet/dry adhesive (Tombow mono adhesive is suggested), and printed photos of a single event/vacation/theme as your book must have a narrow focus. Please bring 40-50 photos for the first session and 50-60 photos for the second session. Cathy Jones is an LPN and Medical Assistant and has worked as an Ed Tech in the past. Scrapbooking has been her hobby for over 10 years. She joined Stampin Up as a demonstrator last year. Cathy says digital photos are great, but remember, we don’t have 8-tracks anymore!

Numerology Intensive: Your Life’s “Blueprint” Afternoon Session Fall 2018

$27

with Susan West

Calendar Sep 11, 2018 at 1 pm, runs for 1 week

If you have ever pondered the questions “Who am I really?” and “What is my true purpose in this lifetime?”, then this two hour intensive is for you! Numerology is the science of numbers, translating the letters of your birth name as it appears on your birth certificate (whether incorrect or later changed), and numbers of your birth date, into the single digits 1-9, requiring only rudimentary addition skills (including reduction… reducing double digits to single by adding them together.) Armed with just these few “basics” it is mere child’s play to return to, redirect, and/or balance priorities as your dreams and aspirations shift, change and unfold with the passage of time. Who on Earth does not want to live a life filled with Purpose and Intention, Passion and PURE JOY! Named Susan Danforth West at birth by her parents, and born a skeptic on November 29, 1947 in Dover Foxcroft, Maine, your guide to Numerology has been a student of the Science of Numbers for 50+ years! Her intro to “numbers and other dreaded math” occurred in the Virgin Islands town of Frederick, St. Croix in the early 70’s when she discovered a paperback entitled “The Secrets of Numbers” by Johnson and Wommack… and the rest is history! Please join her for an enlightening and revealing tutorial while she shares with you the secrets of the numbers themselves and their amazing vibrational and cultural correlations underlying and enhancing every aspect of your incredible journey here on Planet Earth!
