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 to 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 is now 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.
You may have heard that local chambers of commerce on the coast have combined to create the new Penobscot Bay Region Chamber of Commerce. Its members certainly know all about the latest toboggan, lobster or Windjammer Festival.
But there’s something else Executive Director Dan Bookham wants you to know: “Around here the people who propel the local economy slow down to connect with their neighbors.” Read Dan’s column in the Midcoast Beacon at http://www.midcoastbeacon.com.
And thanks for reading The Weekly.
