Stewardship Phase 4 training

BETHEL — Gem Theater, Mahoosuc Heart & Soul will host the Phase 4 training workshop from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 27.

Stewardship has taken many forms in Heart & Soul towns. Some towns have a committee that meets a few times a year to follow up with actions, but it is up to each community to decide how to carry the plan forward.

At the end of this workshop, participants will have the understanding to:

• Develop a comprehensive Stewardship Plan to continue and further Heart & Soul-related activities; 

• Create a framework that illustrates the implementation of prioritized actions and tracks the work of partnering organizations and groups towards implementation; and

• Describe strategies to continue embedding and monitoring Heart & Soul in your community’s unique context.

All are invited to attend. Persons who cannot make it to the training but are interested in becoming a member of the Stewardship Team should reach out to Cat Ingraham, 207-590-0541 or [email protected]

Scholarships offered in Franklin County

ELLSWORTH — Adult learners from Franklin County who are returning to school for post-secondary education are eligible to apply for the Hugh and Elizabeth Montgomery Scholarship.

Preference is given to students for whom a scholarship would make a significant difference in their ability to attend school. First-time applicants need not be enrolled in a degree-granting program but are encouraged to make that commitment before applying for renewal consideration.

Both Elizabeth “Betty” and Hugh Montgomery had roots in Phillips. Betty was born in Phillips and attended schools there, and Hugh summered there in the old farmhouse that belonged to his family. They both went to college, Betty to Simmons and Hugh to Harvard, and pursued careers as librarians.

The deadline for applications is Dec. 14. Complete guidelines and the application form are available through the Maine Community Foundation, www.mainecf.org.
