Kajak! A Virtual Exhibit 10/20/20 - 12/20/21 at 12:00 am

Kajak! A Virtual Exhibit

Inspired by the full-sized Nunatsiavut kayak given to the College in 1891 and on display in the museum gallery for over 50 years, this exhibit explores making and using traditional kayaks from Greenland, Labrador, and beyond. It features over 20 model kayaks and umiaks, as well as associated equipment, historic film and photographs, and the centerpiece of the exhibit, a full size replica of the 1891 Kajak created for this exhibit.
 
You can explore the full object-based exhibit, as well as various multimedia components, online. Recordings of lectures and other virtual events during the 2020-21 academic year will also be posted here, so be sure to check back.

Midcoast CA$H, the free tax preparation service offered by United Way of Midcoast Maine, has teamed up with GetYourRefund to connect people to our IRS-certified volunteers working virtually. This year, because of Covid-19 restrictions, there are 2 options to file taxes with Midcoast CA$H, both of which are safe and secure and require no direct contact.

The first option, the fastest way for people to get their refund, starts by visiting www.getyourrefund.org/midcstme – a fast, reliable, and free service that connects users with Midcoast CA$H’s tax preparers. It is as simple as answering a series of questions, then using a cell phone or computer to upload documents for the tax preparers to review before filing. Judy, a recent CA$H client exclaimed “It’s so easy, I’m embarrassed!” after worrying it would be difficult to use the GetYourRefund website.

The second option is called Scan & Go for people without a cell phone or computer. By calling (207) 295-6340 clients will initiate the process and be sent an intake packet. All the forms needed to file the taxes can be taken to one of the Scan & Go sites in Brunswick, Topsham, or the multiple locations in Lincoln County. All the documents will be scanned into GetYourRefund for the client and immediately returned to them.

Midcoast CA$H is part of the CA$H Maine initiative and this year’s tax preparation service supported by BIW, Bath Savings Institution, Bowdoin College, CEI, Davenport Trust, First Federal Savings & Loan, First National Bank, General Dynamics, John T. Gorman Foundation, IRS/VITA, Lincoln County Regional Planning Commission, Maine Women’s Fund, Midcoast Maine Community Action, New Ventures Maine, and Norway Savings.

Willie & Chet's at Vessel +Vine 03/19/21 at 4:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Willie & Chet's at Vessel +Vine

We’re Popping Up at Vessel & Vine!

Join us for a super fun night with our gal pals at Vessel & Vine plus a special guest baker April Robinson of Ritual Bakehouse!

This is a really exciting collaboration… Vessel & Vine has all the good stuff- wine, beer, cheese, meats, snacks, cocktails…so make sure you plan some time to shop (or order from V&V online) when you come to pick up – (this will be a heat & eat, prepaid, timed pick up situation) – Nikaline will be selecting some tasty beverages to compliment what we’ve got going on PLUS you’ll find all kinds of goodies for the weekend and upcoming holidays (she even has surprisingly delicious matzoh).

We just met April- please follow her on IG @ritualbakehouse…(ok yeah a short meeting turned into 4 hours of talking about food)…her pedigree as a chef is outstanding and her desserts …ok lets just say we had a hard time picking just one thing but we’ve been jonesing for a proper éclair for a long long time, and now you get one too!!!!

We’ve been thinking about this menu for awhile now. Korean flavors find their way into our food a lot and it’s not just because they are delicious.

I was 9 years old, living on Long Island and my best friend was Jina, who‘s mother, Cho, was Korean (sadly they are both gone now). I loved when Cho cooked, she made her own kimchi, burying it the garden. I’d constantly beg her to make pajeon, vegetable pancakes for me. Those flavors are as much part of my sense memory as my Nanny’s matzoh ball soup is.

Cho was such a kind woman, we definitely tried her patience and she’d yell at us …oh would she yell, she’d get so mad she’d completely stop speaking English…and who wouldn’t yell at two very bad girls who let a pack of dogs in to the house…again (it was the 70’s us kids and our dogs ran around in packs until it got dark).

No matter how bad I was, her kitchen was my second home and for that I am eternally grateful.

This ones for Cho & Jina & Ronnie &Mickey.

You definitely want to check out the Willie & Chets Pop up Fun Page for this one…street food videos, movies, k-pop and k-drama!
