League of Women Voters Downeast — Upcoming Events

Hello, everyone —


a reminder that tonight is the night we’re sponsoring Candidate Forums in in Ellsworth.  The forums begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Ellsworth City Hall Auditorium and feature candidates for District Attorney, State House of Representatives, and State Senate.  Co-sponsors include AAUW, BPW, the Ellsworth American, and the Ellsworth Area Chamber of Commerce. 

Also mark your calendars for the following:

  • From 7 – 9:00 p.m. on Friday, October 22, “the nerve” and friends will play a benefit concert for Maine Citizens for Clean Elections at the Fisherman’s Friend, 5 Atlantic Ave, Stonington.  Suggested donation $5.  

  • On Saturday, October 23, Reel Pizza in Bar Harbor will screen the movie, Casino Jack and the United State of Money to benefit Maine Citizens for Clean Elections.  This new documentary offers a probing investigation into the lies, greed, and corruption surrounding D.C. super-lobbyist Jack Abramoff and his cronies.  That’s 2:00 p.m., Reel Pizza, 33 Kennebec Place, Bar Harbor.  Suggested donation, $6.

  • On Wednesday, October 27, we’ll get together for the next Current Events Discussion Group from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. at the home of Margery Forbes in Blue Hill.  The discussion group is interesting and a lot of fun.  Bring an article or news story to discuss with the group.  Call 374-2068 to RSVP or if you need directions.

  • On Friday, October 29, the Maine Humanities Council is sponsoring a day-long program, “Coming to America: Historical and Contemporary Perspectives on Immigration,” at The Grand in Ellsworth.  Here’s a link for more information.  


hope you can join us for one or all of these get-togethers.  See you soon!
