FEMA CLASS – UNTIL HELP ARRIVES @ Louis T. Graves Memorial Public Library
Oct 24 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

 

Kennebunkport Public Safety Campaign Trains Citizen How to Save a Life Before Professional Responders Arrive.

Join your neighbors and attend FEMA’s new class “Until Help Arrives” at the Louis T. Graves Memorial Public Library 18 Maine Street, Kennebunkport, ME 04046

Kennebunkport Public Health and Kennebunkport Emergency Management are happy to offer this new free class to you on Tuesday October 24th, 2017 from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. This hands-on training focuses on actions citizens can take in life threatening situations before first responders arrive

Citizens who are interested can visit the Kennebunkport Public Health website at www.kennebunkportme.gov/public-health-department  to learn more about the program.

The training covers a number of key areas including how citizens can effectively communicate with 9-1-1 operators, stay safe in a dangerous situation, stop life-threatening bleeding, position the injured, Hands Only CPR, provide emotional support and more. With these basic skills, citizens can play a part in being a part of the solution during an emergency. At any emergency scene, especially before first responders arrive, we want citizens to be very aware of their safety. This training will teach citizens to have situational awareness if they are trying to help others and how to keep themselves safe until help arrives. The program, Until Help Arrives, is a partnership between the Kennebunkport Emergency Management, Kennebunkport Public Health and Graves Library based on a national curriculum developed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the US Department of Health and Human Services. The program is free and advanced registration is requested

To register, please contact Kennebunkport Public Health office at 207.967.4401 or email at akenneway@kennebunkportme.gov.

PASCO LECTURE with KATHERINE HALL PAGE @ Louis T. Graves Memorial Public Library
Nov 19 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Katherine Hall Page is the author of twenty-three previous Faith Fairchild mysteries, the first of which received the Agatha Award for best first mystery.  The Body in the Snowdrift was honored with the Agatha Award for best novel of 2006. Page also won an Agatha for her short story “The Would-Be Widower.” The recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award at Malice Domestic, she has been nominated for the Maine Literary Award, the Edgar Award, the Mary Higgins Clark Award, and the Macavity Award.  She lives in Massachusetts and Maine with her husband.

 

 

For most of her adult life, resourceful caterer Faith Fairchild has called the sleepy Massachusetts village of Aleford home. While the native New Yorker has come to know the region well, she isn’t familiar with Havencrest, a privileged enclave, until the owner of Rowan House, a secluded sprawling Arts & Crafts mansion, calls her about catering a weekend house party.

Producer/director of a string of hit musicals, Max Dane-a Broadway legend is throwing a lavish party to celebrate his seventieth birthday. At the house as they discuss the event, Faith’s client makes a startling confession. “I didn’t hire you for your cooking skills, fine as they may be; but for your sleuthing ability. You see, one of the guests wants to kill me.” Faith’s only clue is a sinister birthday gift the man received the week before-an empty casket sent anonymously containing a 20-year-old Playbill from Max’s last, and only failed, production-Heaven or Hell.  Book on sale date – December 5, 2017.

The Pasco Lecture Series is sponsored by the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation, Kennebunk Savings Bank, and the Graves Library Snack Team.  The Library is located at 18 Maine Street, Kennebunkport, Maine.  Please call the Library at (207) 967-2778 for information on this event or other upcoming programs.  Light refreshments will be served.
