Red Friday at Hammond Lumber

Hammond Lumber Company will be initiating a company wide effort to support Wreaths Across America in their mission to Remember the Fallen, Honor Those Who Serve, and Teach Our Children the Value of Freedom. Wreaths Across America, based in Columbia Falls, Maine, is a national nonprofit organization founded in 2007 by Maine businessman, Morrill Worcester. Each December, on National Wreaths Across America Day, this three-prong mission is carried out by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as at more than 1,400 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea and abroad. In 2017, 1,560,000 wreaths were laid at 1,433 participating cemeteries.

Our employees will be proudly wearing co-branded RED t-shirts or sweatshirts each Friday from November 9th to December 14th. Family members, friends, and customers can also join us and receive one RED t-shirt apparel item by making a $25 donation. All funds will be used to purchase wreaths for distribution at the Veterans’ Cemeteries in Augusta on National Wreaths Across America Day, scheduled for Saturday, December 15th, 2018. Wreaths can be sponsored “in honor of” a living veteran, or “in memory of” a fallen hero.

On Saturday, December 8th, the Hammond Lumber Company chip trailer will travel to Wreaths Across America’s home office in Columbia Falls to collect the wreaths and participate in the first leg of the Wreaths Across America convoy to Arlington. After making stops along the route, the day will end with a rally at the Augusta Civic Center. The Hammond chip trailer will then return to Belgrade where the wreaths will be stored until they are distributed on National Wreaths Across America day, December 15th.

On Saturday, December 15th, anyone wishing to participate in the convoy and/or laying of the wreaths can gather at Hammond Lumber Company in Belgrade. We hope to visit the Togus National Cemetery in Togus (5,373 headstones), the Central Maine Veterans Cemetery on Civic Center Drive (543 headstones), and the Central Maine Veterans Cemetery on Mount Vernon Road (150 headstones). We are waiting for more information from the Augusta Area Coordinator as to which sections of the cemetery we will cover. However, if you have sponsored a wreath and have a loved one in any of these cemeteries you may opt to personally place a wreath at their gravesite.

Hammond Lumber Company is also making a donation of in-kind of materials needed to renovate what will be the WAA hospitality house for Gold Star families, veterans and volunteers who wish to visit the WAA headquarters. We will provide you with more details as the events draw nearer. This is our opportunity to show our veterans and their families, by our actions and support, that we will not forget their sacrifice. This year’s Wreaths Across America efforts will represent the 2018 theme: BE THEIR WITNESS.

From all of us at Hammond Lumber Company, we thank you for your support and participation. Visit any of Hammond Lumber Company’s 21 store locations for more details and to make a donation.

Dawnland: Documentary Film Screening and Discussion

For most of the 20th century, government agents systematically forced Native American children from their homes and placed them with white families. As recently as the 1970’s, one in four Native children nationwide were living in non-Native foster care, adoptive homes, or boarding schools. Many children experienced devasting emotional and physical harm by adults who tried to erase their cultural identity.

The Maine Wabanaki-State Child Welfare Truth & Reconciliation Commission, the first government-sanctioned truth and reconciliation commission (TRC) in the United States, was established in 2012 to investigate what happened to Wabanaki families in Maine’s child welfare system. Dawnland follows the work of the five Native and non-Native commissioners as they travel across the state to gather testimony and bear witness to the devastating stories of Maliseet, Micmac, Passamaquoddy and Penobscot children whose cultural identities were nearly erased.

With exclusive access to the groundbreaking process and never-before-seen footage, the film reveals how state power continues to be used to break up Wabanaki families, and how the TRC seeks to plot a new direction.

In 2015, Bowdoin College became the official repository of the archival records of the Maine Wabanaki-State Child Welfare Truth & Reconciliation Commission. Following the screening, Adam Mazo, one of the filmmakers, and Esther Anne, a participant in the film, will be on hand to discuss the making of the film, the work of the TRC, and the ongoing importance of documenting the commission’s process and telling and retelling the stories of the Wabanaki people.

Co-sponsored by the Student Center for Multicultural Life, the Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum and Arctic Studies Center, Bowdoin College Library, and the Departments of Sociology & Anthropology and Cinema Studies, with support from the Blythe Bickel Edwards Fund. This event is a part of this year’s Native American Heritage Month programming.
