Searsport grad writes Rockin’ Out column

By Roxanne Moore Saucier, BDN Columnist

Dear Readers,

For six years, Emily Burnham has been writing her popular Rockin’ Out column for the Bangor Daily News. Music aficionados know they can count on Emily, who graduated high school in Searsport, to let them know where the cool stuff is happening around the state.

What’s even better is that the BDN has moved Rockin’ Out to Tuesday’s Maine Living page, which will give readers more time to plan to attend events of interest. For example, the Portland band Theodore Treehouse will perform in Bangor this weekend. Want to know more? Read Emily’s column under Living on the BDN website at http://www.bangordailynews.com.

The Bangor Daily’s Health page has generated so much interest that it now is running twice a week, on Tuesdays and Fridays. The Sept. 16 edition will include a column by Noelle Merrill, executive director of the Eastern Area Agency on Aging in Bangor.

An active senior, Noelle has written this week about what started out as a sailing trip and wound up including a rewarding hike to the Thuya Gardens on Mount Desert Island. Read Noelle’s column under Health at http://www.bangordailynews.com.

It’s time for Donn Fendler’s annual program at the Cole Land Transportation Museum at 405 Perry Road, Bangor.

Now 85, Fendler is still remembered as the 12-year-old Boy Scout from Rye, N.Y., who survived nine days on Mount Katahdin in 1939 and co-wrote “Lost on a Mountain in Maine.” He has visited countless schoolrooms around the state to share his adventure with youngsters, and the public still turns out by the hundreds to meet this gentle man who summers in Maine.

Fendler will sign books beginning at 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 17, in the covered bridge next to the Cole museum; give a program at 1 p.m. in the museum conference room, seating first come, first served; and sign more books afterward.

Thanks for reading the Midcoast Beacon.
