Music in April is THE signature fundraiser for People Plus. It enables us to serve over 1300 People Plus members who represent an ever-increasing population of retirees and elders on the Mid Coast. This non-profit could NOT do it without the income from Music in April – which has become a signature event in our community. The Center has raised over $650,000 from the event over the last 20 years. These last few years have demonstrated exactly how vital People Plus is to the lives of the older adult populations. In addition to hundreds of classes, clubs and meals held safely at the Center, we made over four thousand deliveries of groceries, food pantry boxes, meals and prescriptions – and provided over 30,000 miles of transportation – just last year, keeping seniors safe!
People Plus serves the greater Brunswick community by offering a variety of activities to support engaged, healthy and independent lives for older adults, as well as hosting the Teen Center where young people can meet safely to explore creative outlets, eat a healthy meal, and develop into well-rounded adults. People Plus also provides outreach and transportation services, and offers many volunteer opportunities.
People Plus wishes to thank Lead Sponsors Coastal Landing Retirement Community, Mid Coast-Parkview Health Maine Health, Bill Dodge Auto Group, Rusty Lantern Market, Bowdoin College, Priority Real Estate Group, Bangor Savings Bank, Bath Savings Institution, and Maine State Credit Union. Also sponsors Brackett Funeral Home, Off Their Rockers, Spectrum Generations, Norway Savings Bank, Maine State Music Theatre, Goodwin Motor Group, The Times Record, Darling’s Ford, Dead River Company, Kennebec Savings Bank, The Highlands, Thornton Oaks, Avita of Brunswick/Sunnybrook, Atlantic Federal Credit Union, Flight Deck Brewing, Brunswick Instant Print, Maine Community Bank, Insurance and Retirement Solutions, Developers Collaborative, Edward Jones Brunswick & Topsham, and Topsham Tractor & Manchester Motors.

Join Cathance River Education Alliance and Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust for a virtual presentation to learn more about this spectacular river in our backyard, including its geography and inhabitants, how dams affect the river system and its fish populations, and ongoing efforts to restore the river to health.
The dam on the Androscoggin next to the bridge connecting Brunswick and Topsham has long been a part of the landscape. What do you know about its role in the river’s ecological health? You’ll learn about all of the above and more, including how you can support efforts to influence upcoming dam relicensing to ensure the river’s continued recovery.
Charlie Spies will be our guide to the Androscoggin River. He and his wife, Bonnie, raised their family in the Androscoggin River Valley. Charlie has an MS in Forest Biology from the University of Maine and currently serves on the board of the Merrymeeting Bay Chapter of Trout Unlimited. He lives on the banks of the Androscoggin at Head of Tide in Brunswick and is on or near the river every day. These connections have led to a deep interest in the health of the river and its surrounding environment. He will be joined byBowdoin Professor of Biology and Environmental Studies Emeritus John Lichter, who researches the ecology of the river system, andMaine RiversPresident Chuck Verrill, who has experience with river restoration elsewhere in Maine.
This is the second of a three-part series that focuses on the Androscoggin River. Check out Part One, Shimmying Shad and Splashing Sturgeon, to learn about research on fish populations in the Androscoggin. Learn more about Part Three, A New Look at an Old Fish: The Amazing Sturgeon, scheduled for May 23, 2023.
