High school students and their parents are invited to an informative, interactive, and entertaining presentation to help families understand the role essays, interviews, extracurricular activities, sports, and other factors play in the admissions decisions colleges make.

Thompson served on the admissions staff at Bowdoin College from 2000-2012, where she evaluated thousands of applications. Her college and independent school admissions career spans thirty years. She conducts college planning workshops and has helped students navigate the college search and selection process since 2003.

Adult Coloring Group
Wednesday, May. 23, 10:30-11:30am
Think coloring is just for kids? Think again!

Why all of this fuss over coloring books?  First of all, it’s just plain fun!  But current day research also indicates that coloring de-stresses and lessens anxiety in adults, providing a healthy break from our highly scheduled, technology-dependent lives.
 
The Freeport Community Library is providing a dedicated space every Wednesday morning for anyone 18 and older who would like to drop-in at 10:30am and color for an hour or so.  The library provides an assortment of materials including highly detailed coloring book pages for you to choose from, colored pencils, and a large assortment of crayons.  Or, bring your own coloring book pages to copy and share with the group, which numbered eight coloring enthusiasts at the first meeting!
Wednesday, May. 23, 6:30-7:30pm

The High Winds Flute Choir, directed by Nan White, is made up of retired educators and serious amateurs hailing from coastal and inland towns from Yarmouth to Damariscotta.  The present group, playing piccolo, concert, alto and bass flutes, came together for the joy of sharing and the opportunity to experience firsthand the exciting emerging repertoire of pieces being written or adapted for flute choir, from Baroque to contemporary.  They have performed at libraries, retirement communities, and for civic organizations, and love sharing the history of their music and their instruments.

 

Nan White earned her B.A. in Music at Smith College with an emphasis on flute and conducting.  She spent one semester as a special student with Rene LeRoy of the Paris Conservatory.  Nan earned two M.Ed. Degrees and had a career in Special Education, returning to music fulltime after her retirement.  She has conducted many vocal choirs over the years.  High Winds is her first return to instrumental conducting.

This event is free and open to the public.
