Disc Golfing: Family, friendly, fun!

Disc Golfing: Family, friendly, fun!

If you are looking for something to do outside this summer with your family, make sure you check out Pleasant Hill Disc Golf in Scarborough. "What is disc golf?", you ask? Disc golf is golf, but with discs! It's easy to learn and very affordable. They are independently owned and operated. Their 18-hole, 40 acre course, which is a former traditional ball golf course has plenty of wide opened throwing areas [perfect for those of use that may not have the best aim ;)], as well as some fun water hazards! They welcome all playing levels, from beginner to pro as well as dogs! Yes, that's right, you can bring your fur baby! But of course, only well-behaved, socialized, and non-aggressive dogs are allowed and you must pick up all poops. ;)

They are opened 7 days a week from 9:00AM to 8:00PM.

Be prepared for a head on collision between cultures when a conservative bride runs away from the altar and runs into a VW Bus full of hippies from Haight-Ashbury, in the East Coast premiere of Summer of Love, on stage June 22 to July 16 at the Ogunquit Playhouse. With a little help from the hippies and dropouts of San Francisco, she comes to realize she has to make her own kind of music! This new musical by Roger Bean showcases the powerful music of the late 1960s by some of the most influential artists of the love generation including The Mamas and the Papas, Donovan, Janis Joplin and Jefferson Airplane, with songs that include: “Dream a Little Dream of Me,” “Get Together,” “Piece of My Heart,” “White Rabbit,” “Spinning Wheel,” “Happy Together” and many more! Take a trip down memory lane, remember your glory days and most of all enjoy the music!

CUMBERLAND: Patriot Flag Display

CUMBERLAND: Patriot Flag Display

On Thursday, June 23rd, from 7 a.m. to noon, the Town of Cumberland will be displaying a 30 ft. by 60 ft. flag on our ladder truck at Moss Side Cemetary at the Veterans Monument.  This flag is part of a nationwide tour that will be displayed in all 50 states and will conclude in New York City at ground zero on September 11th.  The intent of this display in each state is to remind all of our citizens to "Never Forget" the tragic events that happened to our country ten years ago.
 

There will be public safety staff, veterans, and anyone else that had a part of the terrorist attacks (both directly or indirectly) present.  The Patriot Flag tour has been featured on the CBS evening news and has grown in public awareness since the tour initiated last September.
