Dedication Ceremony for Trails at Kanokolus Bog Preserve. 1:00 pm The community is invited to a dedication ceremony of the trails at Sebasticook Regional Land Trustís Kanokolus Bog Preserve in Unity. After a brief dedication ceremony and refreshments there will be guided walks with forester Dylan Dillaway along Cobís Way, the woodland trail named in honor of Crosby Packard. The Packard Family gifted the property in 2011 so that others would always have "the freedom to be in the woods." The preserve trailhead is located on the Albion Road, 3.6 miles south of the village. In case of inclement weather the SRLT will post event status information on its voicemail (948-3766) and at www.SebasticookRLT.org.

Sebasticook Regional Land Trust hosts its annual Local Foods Feast followed by the film DamNation at the Unity College Center for the Performing Arts. Dinner sourced from local farms and producers and SRLTís annual meeting at 6. Film to follow at 7:30. This powerful film explores the growing awareness that our own future is bound to the life and health of our rivers. DamNationís majestic cinematography and unexpected discoveries move through rivers and landscapes altered by dams (including in Maine), but also through a metamorphosis in values, from conquest of the natural world to knowing ourselves as part of nature. $25 for dinner and film, or $10 for the film alone. To reserve tickets call 948-3766 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
James Macdonald: "Illustration in Wood".
A showing of marquetry embellished wood designs at the Unity Center for Performing Arts. November 6th to December 5th.
An opening reception will be held November 6th from 4:30-6:30pm. Refreshments will be provided. The reception is free and open to the public.
James Macdonald's "llustration in Wood" brings together designs created throughout 26 years of work in his Burnham Studio. Initially enthused by the Art Nouveau and Art Deco movements of the early 20th century, Macdonald has taken their concepts of surface embellishment and applied them to marquetry and inlay on his own work. Thin veneers cut from species of trees from around the world become his palette of colors and textures creating, in essence, a painting in wood.
