Master Maine Guide to discuss book at Maine Historical Society

Yarmouth, Maine (October 2010) - Master Maine Guide Randy Spencer, author of "Where Cool Waters Flow: Four Seasons with a Master Maine Guide," will speak about and sign copies of his book at noon Tuesday, Nov. 16, at Maine Historical Society, 489 Congress St., Portland.       

In his book, Spencer puts readers in the seat of his Grand Laker fishing for salmon and takes them out on the trails, lakes, rivers, and roads of Grand Lake Stream. He also introduces the history of the well-known sportsman’s paradise. His writing reveals a place where people go to decompress, connect with nature, and escape the pressures of modern society.

"Where Cool Waters Flow" is Spencer’s first book and is published by Maine-based Islandport Press. Spencer is a Master Maine Guide, certified by the State of Maine to guide clients on fishing, hunting, or recreational adventures.

About the Residency 
 
It was the wish of Jack Heliker and Robert LaHotan that their home  and studios on Cranberry Island in Maine continue to be used by artists. To this end they left their estates to the Heliker-LaHotan Foundation, with a mandate to operate the complex of buildings on Cranberry Island as a place for artists to live and work.

The Beadin' Path of Freeport, ME named 2010 Merchant of the Year

The Beadin' Path of Freeport, ME named 2010 Merchant of the Year

The board of directors of the Maine Merchants Association recently chose The Beadin’ Path of Freeport, ME, as its 2010 Merchant of the Year.  The award will be presented at the Maine Merchants Association 77th annual meeting on October 27th at the Augusta Civic Center in Augusta, ME.

Although a number of qualified merchants were considered, The Beadin’ Path was chosen because of its commitment to Maine as a local, women-owned business; its leadership in using cutting edge social media to expand their marketability beyond the Maine border and for their tireless commitment  in supporting the community. 

The Merchant of the Year Award has three main criteria: continued growth in employees or sales; commitment of company resources to community projects; and creation of a positive work environment for all employees.  The Beadin’ Path exceeded the criteria on all counts.
