Our regularly scheduled meeting this month is on Wednesday the 19th, beginning at the usual 6:30 PM time. It will be another of our wonderful pot luck meals with great entrees, veggies, bread and rolls and a dessert table to drool over! We will also draw our monthly Booster Club winners.

Family Fishing Day is June 1st this year. That is the date when Maine allows everyone to fish with or without a license. Norway stocks trout into the outlet of Norway Lake at Butters Park, and a net “fence” keeps them there for the kids. We help the kids bait hooks, cast their rods (we supply them if they don’t have any), help them land the fish if necessary and even help them clean them and cook them if they want. in the last few years we have literally given away hundreds of rods and reels and tackle boxes with lures and gear.

Our Youth Field Day is June 22nd this year. We invite no more than 40 kids ages 10 through 15 and their parent our guardian to come for a full day of exciting outdoor education. In groups of 10, they will rotate through various outdoor disciplines including things like .22 rifle education and target practice, archery education and target practice, map reading and compass use, tree identification, survival and first aid, as well as a few new things added this year. There is NO CHARGE for this fun and educational experience, which does include lunch and snacks. For more information, or to sign up, contact Cindy Ouellette at 485-6347.

The winner of the annual College Scholarship will be awarded the $500.00 prize this month. Our club his honored to be able to help our youth get an education.
