PLANS FOR THE NEW YEAR
The 2016-2017 C.A.R. year in Maine is underway under the leadership of State President Lydia Sprague and Senior State President Susan Dennison. Look for information about the Summer Packet Meeting, State Conference, and other exciting State and Local Society upcoming events on the Member Login page as they become available. Dates without detail will also be posted on the Calendar page.
SUCCESSFUL STATE CONFERENCE
Despite a rather unexpectedly intense snowstorm on the morning of the business meeting, Maine enjoyed a fun Annual State Conference. Members, guests, and Seniors visited the Planetarium at the University of Southern Maine on Friday evening where they all learned exciting new tidbits about the solar system. We even got to see what the stars would have looked like on the night of Paul Revere’s ride! Games and pizza were then enjoyed in the hospitality suite, including a very unique and hilarious round of Headbandz. On Saturday, State President Madison Snaith led the State Conference and business meeting, with several National guests in attendance, including National First Vice President Connor Jackson.
MAINE C.A.R. MEMBERS ATTEND NEW ENGLAND REGIONAL MEETING
Members and Seniors from across New England and the country had a great time at the 2015 New England Regional Meeting in Providence, Rhode Island, with Maine State President Madison Snaith reporting on the activities in Maine and taking part in the National Program skits (and she was Wonder Woman!) and Adam Bartow as the Senior National Vice President of the New England Region. Look for more pictures in the Photo Gallery section of this site.
Continue to send pictures from Society events to the Senior State President. We want to see your smiling faces on our site!
