Maine 200

No updates.



Our October 5th road race has been named in the honor of Robin Emery:  Robin’s Run - Lamoine Four Miler.  Robin and Gordon shared their plan for the event.  The race committee will meet to finalize details for the race and BBQ.  Skip Smith needs to be notified about the change in date.


Publicity and PR

Carol needs videos for our YouTube Chanel.  We need a person to coordinate videoing 150 events.  Gordon will check with Stu to see if there’s someone on the town’s tech committee who would be interested.


The July Quarterly will have information about our logo reveal and a calendar of our first three months of events. (Gordon)


Cynthia and Miranda are working on postcards to be sent to everyone in Lamoine(900 mailboxes).  They plan to send the first one out in June after the logo reveal.  Each postcard will have Lamoine 150 events for the next three months and feature either the logo winner or one of the other logo entries.  It was decided to order the postcards online.


Logo Contest

We have several submissions.  Jo will convene the judges by May 23 or 24 to make a decision.  Miranda will post entries in a Facebook album.  The winning logo will be revealed on Saturday, June 15 at noon.  This will happen at the Town Hall with press invited.  Miranda will send invitations to the participating artists.  They do not have to be present.  The logo winner will not be notified ahead of time. Carol and Miranda will not be able to attend as this is the last student day of school, and they have to work.


Lamoine 150 Memorabilia


Carol emailed all our town contacts. 

Lamoine Little Children’s group can sell baseball caps for adults and children.

The Lamoine Historical Society will sell their annual calendar and a new book about Lamoine.



We reviewed our revised calendar.


Carol and Miranda are working on the road rally scavenger hunt for Saturday, September 28.  It was decided not to make this a timed event.  Participants will receive clues about different locations in Lamoine.  Once they find the location, they will take a group picture to document their success. 


Carol has a small committee (Wynne Guglielmo, Faith Perkins, Diane Sanderson) who are working on a Lamoine Poetry/Music Festival.  It is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, February 8, 2020, at the Grange.  Carol is going to ask LCA to cosponsor the event with us. 


The Grange is interested in hosting a cribbage evening.  The date has not been determined.


Gordon shared an updated schedule for the Lamoine 150! Anniversary Evenings.  He has confirmation for most of the programs.



A few items and costs were added.  We need to prepare a draft budget.


Next Meeting

There being no further business, the meeting adjourned at 4:43 P.M.
