This. This. This!

Regardless of how we personally interpret or experience the Holy.  Regardless of which individual causes we are most inspired to dedicate time to.  Regardless of where we place our priorities on our day-to-day lives.  When any among our human family are adrift in turbulent waters of life, spiritually or physically, we are each Called to form such a chain as this.  Because we are each other’s saviors.  That is why we are here together on this planet.

 

Pittsfield’s 45th Egg Festival 2017

July 10th – July 15th, 2017 Pittsfield Maine

The Central Maine Egg Festival has traditionally been a celebration of the brown egg industry and is held annually in July at Manson Park. Activities are held in and around the downtown area for the five days preceding the festival, with a parade and the Kiwanis Karnival held on Saturday. Local civic groups collaborate by participating to host events or as vendors in Manson Park. The Kiwanis Karnival is a highlight of the event.  The week’s fun  also includes an Early Bird Breakfast, cheesecake and quiche contest (judged by Pittsfield’s Town Councilors), a lively street dance, music in Hawthorne and Manson Park, craft fair, fireworks and parades.  Be sure to look for the rainbow flag as Pittsfield’s own Rev. Scott Jones walks each year in solidarity in support of the LGBTQ community.

This may be the last official Egg Festival for Pittsfield as many residents are requesting the creation of a new theme for the entire July event.  So be sure to visit Pittsfield this week to join in the festivities. And if you have any ideas about a fun theme that will appeal to the community and engage economic development, please contact one of Pittsfield’s Town Councilors. At THIS LINK
