Time for Coastal Cleanup

All the information and data sheets you need are on the bulletin board at the Lodge.  Take a walk or paddle along the shoreline and pick up trash, bottles, and stuff and bag it.  Record what you find on a data sheet as you go.  Leave the bag and the data sheet behind the Playhouse in the designated spot.  The bags will be taken to the Transfer Station on Saturday morning September 23rd.  The past 3 years MacMahan has had the largest haul of all those left at the Georgetown Transfer Station.

Thank you for helping keep the oceans and shoreline clean.

Chowder Picnic

We are looking for volunteers to help clean up after the chowder picnic. There is always a large crew of early morning helpers but we’d like to have a few more people help at the end.  Clean up is right after the picnic (putting away food, tables, etc), around 1 pm.

If you are planning to come to your usual 9 am shift (choppers and peelers) or 10 am shift (stirrers and set-up) or would like to join one of the three shifts (9am, 10 am, 1 pm), we look forward to seeing you!

See you at the picnic on the 18th,
Becky, Heather, Cathy, Holly & Henny

Adopt a 24’ Sailboat

For the last few years I haven’t had the time to sail Manana, my 24 foot Columbia.  It would be wonderful if someone on the island might take possession—with one string attached: that being I might sail her once-in-awhile.  The mainsail and furling genoa are in excellent shape. She has a bit more sail than a Sprite and the deck is a few inches higher off the water.  The 8 horse Evenrude has low hours.  She could use a paint job, but otherwise she’s old (196?) but sturdy and a perfect day-sailor.

I’m on and off the island through September.  Contact me by calling 207 841 9418 or email rdvseymour at gmail.com.
