IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT 2020 IPP PLANS
I've been informed that the leader of our IPP program has been receiving a fair number of emails from camp owners inquiring if they or their child can join the team for this summer. Many have stated they'd like to do this because summer internships or summer camps have been cancelled. This is not the role of the IPP.
IPP activities this summer will be severely curtailed as we cannot ensure appropriate social distancing, and scheduling of the appropriate training class to learn the science and aquatic botany for new team members is also not possible.
Under normal circumstances, the IPP would welcome those with a legitimate interest in aquatic science and lake preservation, not just wanting 'something to do'. If you are one of those persons with a strong interest, we ask that you check back next spring.
The Center Theatre has announced that the 2020 Maine Whoopie Pie Festival has been postponed until October 3, 2020.
In response to the State of Maine's plan to restart the Economy and our own desire to ensure the safety of all the participants of the Maine Whoopie Pie Festival, we will be postponing the 2020 Maine Whoopie Pie Festival until Saturday, October 3rd. The Center Theatre and Piscataquis Chamber of Commerce will be contacting bakers, vendors, and festival contractors to coordinate around the new new date.
We plan to have new activities and contests centered around the new date. . . Pumpkin Whoopie Pie bake-off anyone?
From everyone here at the Whoopie Pie Festival, to everyone out there dealing with the COVID 19 pandemic, please stay safe and enjoy a whoopie pie. We'll see you in the October.
