Midcoast Maine's Got Talent hit a home run on May 18, raising money for the Community Fund and also encouraging local talent to take the stage.

Gordon Allen, who died just before Christmas. Since then John Rice, one of Gordon’s former parishioners has done the honors. The Club approved $5000 from the Ray Jones Fund to replace 12 windows at the Portsmouth Discovery Center. Ray’s wife Marlene was on hand to receive the Christmas Ornament marked #1. This has become a club tradition. Back in the day, Ray outbid everyone to own the First Ornament.
