Blue Hill Public Library
The Blue Hill Public Library is starting a new monthly series of discussions on issues affecting our community, the state and the world: the “Blue Hill Community Issues Forum.” The series will be organized and moderated by retired history professor, Dr. Gregory Bush, with the goal of stimulating in-person civic dialogue about important but sometimes overlooked issues on the Blue Hill Peninsula, in Maine and across the nation. Events will be streamed online via Facebook, with additional pre-event information and a post-event blog provided at www.sites.google.com/view/bluehillforum.
The first event in this series will be on Wednesday, February 13 at 6:30 PM, a panel discussion on the topic “Home Safety Challenges on the Peninsula.” This forum will examine issues of crime, fire safety, and aging in place as they impact households on the Blue Hill Peninsula. Including local experts and longtime residents, panelists will assess the dangers, resources, and unique challenges of our rural/small town area. Members of the audience are encouraged to bring their own perspectives and speak out after the initial presentations.
Speakers include Scott Kane, Hancock County Sheriff; Denny Robertson, former Blue Hill Fire Chief, Harbor Master; Ann Schroth, Program Coordinator, Healthy Peninsula; and Kara Janes LMSW, Program Manager, At Home. This event is sponsored by the library, and is free and open to everyone. For more information contact the library at 374-5515.
