Maine Credit Unions ‘Keep ME Warm’ With $30,000 Contribution

In response to an urgent need to help offset cuts to the federal low income Home Energy Assistance Program, known as LIHEAP, Maine’s credit unions made a collective contribution to the “Keep ME Warm” Program of $30,000.  The Keep ME Warm Program is a collaboration of the ten United Way organizations in Maine and the ten Community Action Programs.  The contribution will purchase nearly 9,000 gallons of fuel for families across Maine.

In presenting the check on behalf of Maine’s credit unions, John Murphy, President of the Maine Credit Union League, applauded the willingness of Maine’s credit unions to come together in a “cooperative effort.  Credit unions are located across Maine and have members in every community. To credit unions, helping members goes far beyond just providing financial services, it means so much more.  The opportunity to help families in communities throughout Maine heat their homes speaks directly to what credit unions are all about.

Studio Theatre of Bath to Present ‘Beyond Therapy’

Studio Theatre of Bath to Present ‘Beyond Therapy’

This February, break up the winter blues with the Studio Theatre of Bath at a laugh-out-loud production of Christopher Durang’s Beyond Therapy.  

Directed by April Joy Purinton, this farcical comedy focuses on Prudence (Christina Boyington) and Bruce (Marc Rodriguez), two Manhattanites who are seeking stable romantic relationships with the help of their psychiatrists, each of whom suggests the patient place a personal ad. Their first meeting proves to be disastrous. Bruce is a highly emotional bisexual who has a live-in lover, Bob (Bretton Harris) and tends to cry easily, a trait homophobic Prudence sees as a weakness. The two report back to their respective therapists - libidinous Stuart (Vince Shatto), who once seduced Prudence, and eccentric Charlotte (Tamara Lilly), who stumbles over the simplest of words, references the play Equus as a good source of advice, and interacts with Bruce and all her patients with the help of a stuffed Snoopy.
