Thank You!
Because we were unable to thank outgoing President Linda Dunn at the Annual General Meeting, a small gathering was held to honor her along with other ASC volunteers who have worked so hard this past year to present lively and engaging classes and presentations.

At the gathering, Linda was presented with a creative and outrageous hat crafted by Sydney Roberts Rockefeller which is usually given at the annual art show reception which was also canceled.

Thank you, Linda, for your expert leadership over these past three challenging years.

Also honored were:

Retiring Events Committee chair Jeff Dunn (wearing his medal, also from Sydney) for coordinating a wonderful array of interesting and thought-provoking presentations these past few years.

Retiring board members Gail Conrad, Nat Fenton, and Dan Poteet for their service and fine contributions.

2021-2022 Instructors, without whom we would not have had classes!
With any luck, a larger gathering for all ASC members will be planned later this summer or in the fall. Stay tuned!

ASC in the Maine Senior College Network Newsletter
The July issue of the Maine Senior College Network has some terrific summer offerings, along with ASC member Thayer Fanazick's photos from Bonnie Chase's spring class, Printing and Dyeing with Spring Botanicals. These were also in our June newsletter, but it's fun to share with the other colleges.
While we take a break from classes and presentations during the summer, if you are looking for summer learning opportunities check out the listings in the MSCN newlsetter. As members of Acadia Senior College, you are eligible to register for classes offered by other senior colleges in Maine, space permitting, paying only the course fees. Most of these are offered by Zoom.
Happy Summer!
