Although the season of leisure is fading into memory, opportunities to gather and celebrate are going strong. Many of our members are holding events over the next couple of months to share in success, achievement and joy. These celebrations are so well-deserved, and we encourage readers to read more about these events here.
Over the past few months, I have been thrilled to attend events hosted by our member groups and see the community impact they make in person. I visited events connected to Maine Council of Churches, Maine Audubon, and Maine Women’s Lobby. I look forward to attending more member events around the state as it is safe to do so! Please read on for more about these events, other member updates, and an upcoming MaineShare event!
That mythical Maine time of year is upon us– the short-lived season we swoon over, yearn for, share memories about. Summer in Maine is like a beloved short story we get to read again each year, and hold close to our hearts, hoping its verse will warm us on the deepest winter days. The days are lighter, the energy brighter. The work our member groups do makes our communities brighter all year long. They continue to work tirelessly for gender justice, environmental justice, affordable housing, support of new Mainers, LGBTQ+ advocacy, and much more. Please read on to hear about recent distributions to these groups, updates from them, and information about our fall Workplace Giving Campaign.
