Welcome to spring at the farm!

Spring has a magical property of energizing us and cheering us up with hope and new beginnings. We now are finding plenty of chances to get outside into the fresh air and sunshine to ride.

This month we would like to highlight Sabrina Harriman. Sabrina has worked as a custodian since 2019 in The Searsport Region. Since the start of her employment at OEI, she has shown what a hard worker she is! She is the first to jump in and tackle any project and is never afraid to get her hands dirty. Sabrina is not only a hardworking, dependable team member but most importantly she shows up to work every day with a smile on her face! Thank you Sabrina for all you do! We are proud to have you as a member of the OEI Family!

April recap:

In April, we all got outside and did our part to clean up our communities, planted trees or flowers, and learned about ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle!
