Maine Premiere – California Typewriter documentary

$10 ticket – to benefit Curtis Memorial Library

 The Curtis Contemporaries are thrilled to once again partner with Frontier for the Maine premiere of the documentary film, California Typewriter.

In this magnificent filmic essay, director Doug Nichol explores the mythology attached to the typewriter, as cultural historians, collectors and various obsessives (including Tom Hanks, John Mayer, David McCullough, the late Sam Shepard, and others) celebrate the physicality of the typewriter both as object and means of summoning the creative spirit.

It also movingly documents the struggles of California Typewriter, one of the last standing repair shops in America dedicated to keeping the aging machines clicking.

 A fascinating combination of history and emotional narrative plunges us into the mysterious, bittersweet moment in which a beloved technology faces extinction and delivers a thought provoking meditation on the changing dynamic between humans and machines.

 Arrive early for a TYPE-IN event, and sample several vintage typewriters from the 30s and 40s on loan from Cosco Technologies in Winthrop, Maine.

Buy tickets here.

Location: The historic sanctuary of First Parish Church

                                                              _____________________
Bill Green is a lifelong Mainer. Born in Bangor (1953) he was educated in Bangor schools (Bangor High 1971) and the University of Maine (1976). As a freshman at UMaine, he worked as a cameraman at WLBZ 2 on Eddie Driscoll’s “My Backyard” and “Dialing for Dollars” shows.

Bill recalls, “The first night I worked, March 17, 1972, I was asked to stay late and run camera for the news. As they played the opening music, and the camera light came on, I remember thinking, I’m going to do this until I’m 65.”

Bill debuted as a sportscaster on WLBZ 2 in 1975. He moved to Portland in 1981 where he anchored weekend sports statewide on WCSH 6 and WLBZ 2. During this period, Bill began to flourish as a feature reporter and developed an expertise in recreation and the outdoors.

In 1993, Bill came off the anchor desk to produce feature stories and documentaries, including 10 documentaries on Maine and the environment under the banner “Color Me Green,” in addition to his weekly features, “Green Outdoors” and “My Hometown.”

In 2000, Bill Green launched an original series, “Bill Green’s Maine.” This program airs Saturdays at 7:00pm and has become the most-watched show in its time period. Among his many interesting life experiences which include climbing Katahdin three times, parachuting and SCUBA diving, Bill was a bone marrow donor to a young girl who lives Michigan. He is also a Registered MaineGuide. Bill and his wife Pam reside in Cumberland. They have two children, Sam and Emily.

You can find Bill Green’s Maine on Facebook here: Bill Green’s Maine

Free comprehensive money management class

Starting Monday, September 11, New Ventures Maine will offer My Money Works, a free five-week class to help you gain the skills and confidence to stretch your money, pay your bills, reduce your debt, find money for savings, plan for retirement, and set personal financial goals.

Register today, as space is limited to 15 people to ensure a small-group experience:

newventuresmaine.org/schedules/my-money-works-70

The class will be held on Mondays from 5:30-8:00 PM, meeting for four sessions from September 11 through October 2. Classes take place in Orion Hall at the University College of Bath/Brunswick at 12 Sewall Street in Brunswick Landing.

Pre-registration is required, and there is no fee for the training. For more information or to register, contact Erica Quin-Easter at New Ventures Maine at 386-1664, email erica.quineaster@maine.edu, or register online at newventuresmaine.org/schedules/my-money-works-70.

My Money Works is open to individuals, couples, and people of all ages and incomes. Anyone who is interested in gaining greater control over your money is welcome.

Erica Quin-Easter, trainer for the class, says, “This course helps you take control over your money, instead of your money controlling you. Whether you are trying to make ends meet now or planning for your long-term goals, you will leave this class with a plan to achieve greater financial stability.”

Participants in recent classes say about My Money Works:

  • I have a much better grasp on the things that are important to think about and keep track of and plan for my money. After the last class, I opened three new savings accounts so that I can reach my goals of being more stable throughout the year (short term savings), have an emergency fund (long term), and save for paying my school bills.
  • I feel like I have the tools I need now to be more financially responsible. I plan on refreshing my budget and sticking to it. I also plan on starting an emergency fund.
  • Thanks to this training, I will be able to repair my credit and move forward to improving my financial health.
  • Everything taught in this class was all new to me, and yet it’s all important information that I need to know in life and will be able to pass onto my spouse and kids.
  • The “real life” way everything was presented in the class made a difference. It made it easy to relate.
  • The group was supportive and respectful, easy to talk to. It was a great class with a wealth of information.
  • Taking the class has made me more positive about my financial future.

Successful completion of the My Money Works class also meets one of the requirements for the Rainy Day Savings program, a matched-savings program that enables eligible individuals and families to double their savings with a matching grant of up to $300 for emergency expenses, as well as requirements for the Family Development Account program, a matched-savings program to save for business development, your college education, first-time home ownership, car purchase or repair, home repair, or emergency savings.New Ventures Maine logo

  • The class used real world examples, meeting the group members where they were and respecting that no matter what.

UUCB Concerts for a Cause: under the song tree

A rare reunion concert of “under the song tree,” a trio of three of Maine’s favorite singer-songwriters who have not performed together in over 10 years: Dan Merrill, Anni Clark, and Lynn Deeves. Their concert features acoustic guitars, flute, harmonica, a variety of percussive instruments, and stellar three-part harmonies.

In 2000 the trio got together and recorded a CD, “under the song tree LIVE.” The CD clearly demonstrates their talents as seasoned musicians and songwriters, and their strength as a trio of performers who are passionate about music. In 2002, NH’s Jam Music Magazine readers voted them “Folk Artists of the Year.”

Lynn Deeves DrummingMaine singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist Lynn Deeves honed her early musical and stage chops on the New England, high energy rock scene and has since released 4 independent CD’s. After 17 years of singing in the top-40 club circuit, receiving Maine Female Vocalist of the Year, Lynn Deeves began writing her own songs with folk, blues, and gospel influences. Rich, soulful vocals combined with a sharp wit, and dynamic stage presence, have created a continually expanding NE fan base. The Portland Press Herald says “…5 star stage presence…this gal’s got a set of pipes…” Deeves has opened for Cheryl Wheeler, Janis Ian, Catie Curtis, Ellis Paul, America and many others.

Anni ClarkAnni Clark is part folk, part blues, sometimes pop, but all parts original. For over 20 years this Maine native has pleased audiences nationwide with her captivating voice, mindful lyrics, and excellent guitar playing. She has received Female Artist of the Year on multiple occasions. Clark is a Maine native who has recorded seven successful albums and shared stages with international acts including Shawn Colvin, Richie Havens and Cheryl Wheeler. The Kennebec Journal wrote “what I love about Clark is that she can have you laughing one moment and close to tears the next with the honest emotions in her material.”

 

Dan MerrillDan Merrill creates intimate, honest lyrics and soaring vocals set to pop, funk, acoustic rock, folk and singer-songwriter styles. During his acoustic beginning in the 90’s, Dan won the coveted “Newfolk” songwriter’s award at the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas in 1995. In 2000, in addition to playing with Under the Song Tree, he joined forces with the Pennsylvania progressive rock band, Simon Apple which yielded the band’s first U.S. Top 10 single in 2005 – “Hold Me” [Like A Lover] written by Dan. He was also awarded JPF (Just Plain Folks), “Male Vocalist of the Year.”. And now, it all comes full circle with Dan returning to his acoustic singer/ songwriter roots in his latest CD “Tomorrow to Yesterday”

TICKETS:
$12 in advance, $15 at the door, $6 Students/Children

Participants in previous career planning classes with New Ventures Maine say:

  • This class made me accountable on action steps to pursue a new job. I went home each week feeling energized and hopeful.
  • Thanks to the class, I have a far greater idea how to proceed and succeed in finding and obtaining the career I want.
  • The blend of approaches was helpful: handouts, PowerPoint, white board, conversation, and special guest speakers.
  • The workbook, combined with classroom instruction, relevant homework, and classmate camaraderie, kept me on task in devoting more time into proactively thinking about my career, instead of reacting to whatever is available.
  • I benefited from the supportive environment, encouragement from classmates, tools and job search sites, and goal setting.
  • The class used real world examples, meeting the group members where they were and respecting that no matter what.
  • I do not feel so alone and confused about my job search and interests. I have hope for the future and that I can do it.
  • I incorporated my lessons from the class into my job interview – and got the job!

The month-long My Next Career Move course will connect class participants with guest speakers from various sectors as well as community resources to support further education and training.
