posted by Tammy Tarling

At our February 10th meeting, we honored our Greely Student of the Month, Kaiyla Delisle, a sophomore at Greely who lives in Cumberland with her parents, Darren and Moriah Yorkey.


Kaiyla plays basketball and football at Greely and works with children on basketball fundamentals for the rec program. She takes classes in art and enjoys painting and drawing. She also recently participated in Greely’s Poetry Out Loud event.


She is being recognized for her service as Captain of the Greely Civil Rights team. Among other things, Kaiyla has organized a day of welcome in support of immigrants, sponsored a harmony dance for all students, set up a school Civil Rights bulletin board, and hosted a speaking event for Martin Luther King Day. In addition, she is the Greely representative in a town wide Civil Rights Leadership Committee.

WOW and congratulations Kaiyla!

Skyline Farm Carriage Museum: 200 Years of Runners & Wheels: Celebrating Maine's Bicentennial

posted by Tammy Tarling   [ updated ]

Skyline Farm Carriage Museum’s current winter exhibit “200 Years of Runners & Wheels: Celebrating Maine's Bicentennial” highlights vehicles used circa 1820 in Maine. It is rare that a museum would have one vehicle 200 years old or older; however, Skyline has many, including three four-wheeled Pleasure and Comfort Waggons (old spelling), a two-wheeled doctor’s Riding Chair used in Cornish, Maine, and a Boston Chaise. Also featured are many early sleighs including the Rudyard Kipling rattan sleigh, early Albany & Portland styles, Rural Mail, Booby Hut, Hearses, Doctors, and a School Bus.

 

The museum, located at 95 The Lane, North Yarmouth, is open for public viewing on Sundays, from February 23–March 29, 1-4 p.m. or by appointment. Free admission; donations are appreciated. Dress warmly as the museum is not heated.

 

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


Horse-drawn vehicles, including some from the 1820’s.
