Hosted by Spectrum Generations Coastal & Knox Community Centers on the Grounds of the Historic Kavanagh Mansion in Damariscotta Mills.

WDAM’s Inaugural Radio Show featuring Spectrum’s Down Home Memory Players: Live on stage will take place on August 20, 2014 beginning at 5:00 p.m. on the grounds of the historic Kavanagh Mansion in Damariscotta Mills.

Honorary Chair Charles Richards and Gala Chair Kate McCormick invite you to put on your fancy summer frocks, dapper duds and fancy hats as we take a trip back to the golden years of radio with games, ads and auction items. Local musicians and actors playing old radio stars of the 1930’s and 40’s will perform vintage radio scripts, adapted by Mike and Beth Rowe and friends for you our “live studio audience”.

The summer gala dinner buffet, catered by Cohen on the Meadows, a division of Spectrum Generations, featuring chicken and beef tenderloin kabobs and grilled summer vegetable skewers, elegant salads, assorted dessert bars and a complimentary glass of wine courtesy of Savage Oaks Winery in Union is being served under St. Andrews Episcopal Church’s big yellow and white tent. Should the weather become difficult, the event will be moved to St. Patrick’s Church. During the “Who’s on First” segment of the radio show a Joe DiMaggio commemorative picture will be on the auction block.

Creating Livable Communities for all Ages: Proceeds benefit Spectrum Generations programs and services for older and disabled adults and their families in Knox and Lincoln County. Net proceeds generously matched by an anonymous donor.

Our mission is promoting life-long learning, health, wellness, nutrition, community engagement and social well-being of all older and disabled adults.

Based on the premise that the ability to live in one’s own home and community safely, independently and comfortably regardless of age, income, or ability level, enables a person to live a more physically and socially healthy life.
