Job opportunity The Yarmouth Historical Society has a job opening for a rising senior who is interested in majoring in History or a related subject. This is funded by a grant. The total amount of the grant is $1500 and this will go directly to the student who is chosen. A resume is required along with a cover letter. The successful applicant will be given the chance to work in collections, education and development. The rate of pay is $9.00 per/hour at 20 hours per week. This amounts to 8-9 weeks depending on the schedule that the student and I work out. It is the goal of the grantor and the staff at the History Center to give the student employment that will stand out on an application as well as an insight as to how the History Center works. A love of history helps as there will be plenty of opportunity for research and writing. Thank you, Amy Aldredge Executive Director Yarmouth Historical Society 118 East Elm Street Yarmouth, ME 04096 (207) 846-6259 www,yarmouthmehistory.org

Community Service Opportunity An Easy/Fun Opportunity to Earn Credits For Community Service WHEN? Saturday morning, April 9, 2016, 9:15 to 11:15 WHERE? First Parish Church, 116 Main Street, Yarmouth WHAT? Packaging vacuum-sealed meals for hungry children in northern rural Maine. Sitting or standing at an assembly line and pouring, for example, a cup of macaroni or soy into a plastic bag with 44 other people: men, women, adults, and students. WHY? One out of four children in Maine worry about not having enough food to eat each day. Northern rural towns in Maine have few, if any, food pantries; transportation and spoilage create huge problems. July and August are critical months, because hungry children in northern rural Maine have no breakfast or lunch available at school. Usually it takes until age 25 for one’s brain to develop fully. With so many hungry children, what does this say about their brain development? What about the quality of Maine’s high school graduates? For only 25 cents, Kids Care Food Program can provide supplies for a nourishing meal. The meals are vacuum sealed; therefore, the shelf life for the meals is two years. There are three options for Kids Care meals: a vegetable/rice casserole, a bean/rice meal, and a macaroni and cheese dinner. All meals are fortified with protein, vitamins, and minerals. Actually, 45 people can package 10,000 vacuum-sealed meals in two hours. Later, the Good Shepherd Food Bank will transport the packaged meals to its Brewer warehouse for distribution in northern rural Maine, specifically in July and August, when the children there have the least amount of food to eat. To register, or if you have any questions, please email Barbara Horton bhre77@myfairpoint.net Thanks so much!
