Help Sarah and Pamela Support Cancer Research! Pamela Smith and I are walking in the 5K Champion the Cure Challenge to benefit research and clinical trials at the Lafayette Center in Brewer. As a participant in one of the clinical trials for colorectal cancer, I know how valuable it is to be able to take part in this research without going to Boston. There are currently 55 adult trials and 20 children's trials in Brewer!  If you would like to support this research, as well as those of us dealing with cancer, we would greatly appreciate it.  You can go to and select "sponsor a participant", type in Sarah Flynn and "search". That will bring you to a donor page that you can fill out. Thank you all for your support of all kinds. It all helps! Sarah

Monday, August 3 at 5 PM

Ephron Catlin and Chloe Hatcher star in this brilliant one act play comprised of letters exchanged over a lifetime between two people who grew up together, went their separate ways but continued to share confidences. It is “an evocative, touching, frequently funny but always telling pair of character studies.” Chloe has performed this many times on MDI with Phil Fox who died two years ago. This performance will be in Phil’s honor and all of the voluntary admission proceeds will go towards a long-awaited and much needed air conditioning system for ART. One performance only. Don’t miss it!!
