Sparkle 2014 will take place on Saturday, November 8th at the St. Martin’s Function Hall on Main Street in Palmyra.
Joining the Stetson Historical Society will be the Newport Woman’s Club, Newport Cultural Center’s Friends of the Library, the Maine Central Institute Alumni Association, Penobscot 4H Livestock Club, the Sebasticook Valley Federal Credit Union Ending Hunger Program and Hartland St. Albans Lions Club.

FUNDRAISING EFFORTS BEGIN FOR NEW VETERANS MEMORIAL
A fundraising campaign has been initiated to assist in the relocation of the VFW Veterans Memorial in Newport. Authorization was granted from the Newport Selectboard to the VFW Post# 11191 that will result in a new home for the Veterans Memorial currently located on the property of the Newport Cultural Center. The new location will be at Burke Park beside the town’s Riverwalk. The relocation to the park will set it adjacent to the Sidney Skidgel Memorial Bridge and will provide excellent visibility. The placement will also enable a better opportunity for the honoring of veterans. The Newport Cultural Center Board of Directors have the VFW’s greatest appreciation for the use of their property to date.
Work and plans are underway with volunteers coming forward to assist in this community project. Limited ground construction started on Saturday, September 20th. The Newport Public Works Department has adopted the project and has been assisting. The park project also includes relocating the gazebo, enlargement of the park, and many other activities.
To assist in the cost of the relocation VFW Post# 11191 is initiating a $15,000 fundraising campaign. There will be a sign displayed on the future site that will depict the $15,000 goal as well as the status toward that goal. Donations can be sent to the Newport Town Office at 23 Water Street, Newport ME, 04953. All donations will be documented for donor recognition once the goal is met.
