Skyline Farm Carriage Museum: Ladies and Gentlemen - June 30th

posted May 29, 2019, 1:23 PM by Tammy Tarling

Skyline Farm Carriage Museum’s current exhibit “Ladies and Gentlemen” shows how horse-drawn vehicles were designed and built specifically to match various sizes, classes and genders of their occupants. This exhibit shows the “finer” lighter vehicles which were generally built for women and the “bulkier” heavier ones for men. As you walk through the exhibit, you can have fun guessing who the vehicle was originally built for, and the answers are on each podium.


“Ladies and Gentlemen” also highlights the Boston chaise and three new Studebaker vehicles added to our collection: a lovely parasol top Basket Phaeton and two dusty road water sprinkler wagons.

 

New collections of bridle rosettes and bog/marsh and lawn shoes (think summer snowshoes) are on display, too.

 

The museum, located at 95 The Lane, North Yarmouth, is open for public viewing on Sundays through June 30, 1-4 p.m. or by appointment. Free admission; donations are appreciated.

For more information, contact Greg Cuffey at (207) 892-0188 or info@skylinefarm.orgSkyline Farm is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization.

Read With Me summer reading program

posted May 23, 2019, 5:08 AM by Tammy Tarling

The Maine Mariners launched their new “Read with ME” initiative on Wednesday, a summer program that will incentivize students across the state of Maine to read, with the chance to win Mariners prizes. All Maine students enrolled in grades K-8 are eligible and the program is completely free.

“Read with ME” is an hours-based reading program that will allow parents to track the amount of hours read by each student over the summer. If a student reaches 500 minutes, he or she will receive a Mariners bookmark, pencil, and a kids ticket voucher to a 2019-20 game. At 1,000 minutes, a Mariners sticker and an additional kids ticket voucher is added. The maximum prize level of 1,500 minutes includes all of the above plus a team signed card and third kids ticket voucher. Upon registering online, a tracking form will be sent via email, and must be returned to the Mariners office no later than August 30th in order to be eligible for prizes. Students who are located a great distance from Portland are eligible for a substitute prize for the ticket vouchers, if desired.

“We are excited to kick off the ‘Read With ME’ program to get kids reading over their summer break,” said Mariners V.P. of business operations Adam Goldberg. “Reading a variety of stories will help create new and different passions for the kids to start their school year with. I’m looking forward to hearing about the books kids read over the summer at a Mariners game next season.”

The Mariners believe reading is the foundation to success and hope to help youth in Maine cultivate a life-long love of reading. The “Read with ME” program focuses on volume based reading with the hope of helping students with reading proficiency and comprehension. The registration page can be found at MarinersOfMaine.com/read-with-me.

The second season of Maine Mariners ECHL hockey will begin in October. Full and half season ticket packages are available by calling 833-GO-MAINE or visiting the Mariners front office located next to the Cross Insurance Arena at 94 Free Street. Beacon’s Kids Club has also launched for the 2019-20 season, with great benefits for Mariners fans ages 2-12. More information can be found at MarinersOfMaine.com. The Mariners are also asking fans for feedback from their inaugural season. A survey can be accessed here.
