Hi Friend of The River Fund Maine,
Crisp mornings, bright foliage, and a bustling village. All precursors of the winter season soon to come. With school back in session, we’re delighted to have two students from Gould Academy donating their time and resources for their “Senior Four Point”. Gould Academy’s Four Point Program starts in the ninth grade and ends upon graduation. For their final year, students choose an independent service project that they are passionate about.
Sofia Stasinos, a Summer 22’ volunteer with The River Fund Maine has a strong passion for alpine sports. Spending her winters skiing and boarding with family & friends being some of her fondest memories. Making sure more young people in our community have the opportunity to be on snow is why she’s trying to collect and donate 100 pairs of gloves/mittens and 100 neck warmers/hats from her school community to make sure local youth receiving the Community Access Pass have weather appropriate clothing for the winter season.
This Fall Festival Gould Academy Senior, Lily Winch, is fusing her artistic talent and affinity for the mountain to create upcycled trail map origami. Lily’s artwork will have its own booth at the South Ridge Craft Fair this Fall Festival, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting The River Fund Maine programs.
Thank you, Lily & Sofia for your thoughtful and creative contributions to our community!
