ROCKLAND — Penobscot Bay Language School is hosting a summertime fundraising event “The Maine Way: Celebrating Maine culture, history, the Maine way of life, and a new international destination for people
to live, work, and call home!” Proceeds benefit PBLS’ intercultural community programming.
The event takes place Friday, August 12, 2022, from 5:30 – 8 pm, at Penobscot Bay Language School, 28 Gay Street, Rockland.
Explore Maine art, artists, local Maritime history, the many heritage industries and how the Pine Tree State is attracting new residents from around the globe.
“Participate in riveting discussions with a diverse group of panelists from the Midcoast region, discussing topics from the working waterfront, to the major workforce shortage we are facing now, and the ebb and flow of the Maine economy (past and present),” said PBLS, in a news release. “Engage in networking opportunities with Midcoast Mainers from home and away, bring the family for lawn games, and enjoy a delicious Maine delicacy from Luke’s Lobster.”
This event is an all-around Maine-inspired evening for all ages (free entrance for children under 12), according to the release.
“Come eager to learn about our wonderful State and the unique place many of us call home Midcoast Maine,” said PBLS.
Proceeds support the school’s Free ESL of New Mainers program–offering English Language classes and support to all New Mainers.
Registered guests will enjoy mini lobster rolls from Luke’s Lobster, panel discussion with industry and community leaders, Maine treats, games, trivia and so much more. The entire program will be set on the back patio and gardens of Penobscot Bay Language School, in Rockland.
Cost: $35 (or a donation that fits your budget)
