CEAH Newsletter September 2020

Welcome!

As Portland’s warmest summer on record draws to a close, we look forward to the brisk air and beautiful colors of the fall. We live in stressful, uncertain times. I find calm and comfort in the natural beauty of Maine. Like many, I long for the day when we can gather together, unmasked, and share the fellowship that has come to define our Legacy Scholars Program. Our online outreach continues with a terrific fall schedule featuring the scholarship of our faculty and new friends. Join with us; invite your friends. I look forward to seeing you online in the months to come, and in person when the time is right.
