Good Afternoon SRS Family,
2018 Kennebunk Variety Show
Middle School of the Kennebunk’s 8th grader, Maggie Nelson, didn’t have to put a lot of thought into her required community service project. For years she’s wanted to put on a talent show for all ages and this project was a great excuse to light up the stage. She didn’t even have to give a second thought to where the proceeds would go. Having volunteered at the front desk the previous summer, she knew what a vibrant community The Center was and knew it could use her help. The Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit located in Lower Village. It serves the towns of Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, and Arundel. Its mission is to be a warm and welcoming environment for adults 50 and older. It offers programs and volunteer opportunities that foster healthy aging and meaningful contributions to the community. The Center fundraises over 60% of their budget every year and less than one percent comes from municipal support. While volunteering, Nelson watched as seniors in her community engaged in various activities like bridge and yoga. She learned about the community outreach programs the center has that support the seniors in the three towns. She asked questions and learned about The Center’s need for support from local businesses, members, and donations from the community at large. She also learned that according to a 2016 census, 51% of Kennebunk’s population is 50 years or older. It was then she realized that she could use her idea for a talent show to help support this population. “When I learned how much money they have to raise on their own and how much they do for our community, I knew I wanted to help,” said Nelson. “This is the most fun place I have ever volunteered. Every penny made from the show will come right here. We need community support to make this happen.” In 2017 volunteers donated over 6,000 hours of their time to The Center. They served over 700 individuals. Nelson is excited to be a part of that and to bring the Seniors together with the younger population.
The Variety Show takes place on Saturday, May 19 at 2PM in the cafeteria of the Middle School of the Kennebunks, 60 Thompson Road, Kennebunk. Admission is $5 per person with a $20 family limit. Performers get in free. There will be an intermission with snacks available to purchase.
The show is open to all ages and everyone is encouraged to participate. While there have been 2 audition dates already, one more date has been opened. You can audition on Friday, May 4 from 3-5 at The Center. To schedule your audition or, if you are an established act or have a video you could submit instead of an in-person audition, you can do so by reaching out to Nelson by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also call her mother, Mandy, at 508-410-9754. Tickets can be purchased at the door on the day of the event or you can pre-purchase at The Center starting on May 1. The Center hours are Monday-Thursday 8:30am – 4pm and Friday 8:30 am -1pm.

Graves Library Marhapps
Matt Tavares was born in Boston, and grew up surrounded by books and reading. From the time he was very young, his mother read to him every night, and his family made countless trips to the public library. Years later, as a studio art major at Bates College, he rediscovered his love for picture books, and decided to try to make his own. For his senior thesis project, Matt wrote and illustrated a story called Sebastian’s Ball, about a boy who caught a magic foul ball at a Boston Red Sox game. Three years later, after much revision, Sebastian’s Ball became Zachary’s Ball, Matt’s first published picture book. Zachary’s Ball went on to win a Massachusetts Book Award Honor, and was named one of Yankee Magazine’s 40 Classic New England Children’s Books. Since then, Matt has published eighteen more books and has won several awards, including three Parents’ Choice Gold Awards, an Orbis Pictus Honor, and two ALA Notable books. His artwork has been exhibited at the Museum of American Illustration, the Brandywine River Museum, and the Mazza Museum of Picture Book Art. When Matt’s not working in his studio on his latest book project, he travels the country speaking (and drawing) at schools, libraries, conferences, and bookstores. He has presented at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Eric Carle Museum, the White House Easter Egg Roll, and he’s even done a few book signings at Fenway Park.
Matt lives in Maine with his wife, Sarah, and their two daughters.
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.
