The 64th Annual Old Town Rotary Club Hunters Breakfast

The 64th Annual Old Town Rotary Club Hunters Breakfast will be held, as always, on the first day of the deer hunting season, Saturday, November 1, from 4 a.m. to 8 a.m. at the Waterfront Park in downtown Old Town. 

More than 600 people of all ages--hunters and non-hunters alike--are expected to enjoy the breakfast, which includes pancakes, eggs, ham, home fries, beans, donuts, coffee, and hot chocolate. The cost is $5 for adults, $2.50 for children under 12, and $15 for familes. People say that going to the Old Town Rotary’s Hunter’s Breakfast is like going home.

The men and women of the group welcome everyone—hunters, families, children, retirees, college students—basically, anyone who wants a good meal at a great price. After all, the breakfast itself isn’t a big fund-raiser for Rotary, it’s more of a tradition. It’s a time for Rotar­ians to enjoy fellowship amongst themselves and the community.

Hampden Trails Grand Opening 5-K Fun Run & Walk

A 5-K Fun Run and Walk will mark the grand opening celebration of Hampden’s newest recreational trail system, the Reeds Brook Trails, at noon on Sunday, October 19, 2014. “This will be the first public event for our trails, the result of a five-year-long project involving the school district, the town of Hampden, the Penobscot Valley Ski Club, Hampden Academy Athletic Boosters, Maine Winter Sports Center, and local Boy Scouts,” said Dustin Ramsay, who worked extensively on development of the trails. “We hope it will be used by the greater Bangor community for walking, running, biking, and Nordic skiing. It’s basically set-up for four-season, non-motorized use.” The original trail plan, which includes expansion plans for the future, was designed by Fred Bailey Trail Designs, with a majority of the forestry work by Ground Perfection Specialists, a local firm specializing in eco-friendly mulched trail ways.

Beekeepers Buzzing around Hampden Academy

Beekeepers Buzzing around Hampden Academy

More than 200 beekeepers will arrive in Hampden this month for the annual meeting and conference of the Maine State Beekeepers Association. The event brings together beekeepers and non-beekeepers alike from all over Maine to hear guest speakers, meet other likeminded folks and see some of the many vendors.

Peter Cowin, aka The Bee Whisperer, is President of Penobscot County Beekeeper’s Association. “We are very excited to be hosting the MSBA’s annual meeting and conference. We in Penobscot are a brand new club and it’s a great honor for us to bring the meeting to Hampden. This is the furthest north and east the MSBA has held its annual meeting. It is a great opportunity for down east beekeepers and non-beekeepers to go to the meeting without having to travel down to Augusta or Portland.”
