Throughout the day children of all ages will enjoy the amazing informative and lively activities organized by Fields Pond Audubon Society, Maine Discovery Museum, Windover Arts Center and University of Maine Students.
Participants will be able to browse among more than 60 organizations working for social change and sustainability. You will be able to gather information, buy buttons, bumper-stickers and crafts and sample delicious food for sale by local vendors.
The highlight of the day will be an exciting and multi-faceted keynote by twelve community members sharing One Thing that participants can do to create a better world. Organizations will also have DOTs with an action to promote their vision at their table and encourage participants to choose and post on a Wall of HOPE.
A powerful “Connect the DOTs” ceremony will conclude the day as the Alamoosic Singers drum.
The festival is free because volunteers donate time to plan and organize the festival and on the day itself. Let us know if you are willing to help with putting up posters in your community before the festival.
We also need lots of help on the day itself. Can you help with setting up, cleaning up, helping in the children’s area or at the food concession? If you can help, contact the Center at 942-9343 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join us and Do One Thing to make this year’s interactive festival the most exciting ever!
