Yes, there’s going to be a “Friends of Hog Island” work week in 2004, and you’re invited! We’ll be gathering June 13-18 for another round of fellowship, good times, and some fulfilling pre-season work in behalf of the Audubon Camp in Maine. This year, our session will be a bit more “bare bones” than in previous summers, with a more modest array of “learning” sessions during the week and perhaps a few more chores for us around meal time … but your cost will only be $400, a substantial savings over 2003! After a long, hard winter, won’t it be good to get back to Hog Island in the warm June sunshine?
And this year you’re in for a special treat — on Wednesday June 16, we’ll be staging a gala “Fish House” production of “A Sense of Wonder” (based on the life of author and Hog Island supporter Rachel Carson), starring Broadway and television actress Kaiulani Lee. This may just be Hog Island’s first major theatrical event, and we’ll be inviting our local friends and neighbors to join us for an evening of fine food and theatre in this one-time special evening fund-raiser for Hog Island.
The best part of the deal is that your registration for the FOHI week guarantees you a ticket at no additional cost!
Take a peek at what Bates College recently had to say about “A Sense of Wonder” and Miss Lee’s moving performance.
We’ll be saving you a seat on the aisle this June!
Come join us for the “Friends of Hog Island” work week this summer!
