For the approaching winter months…
If you must open your windows, please open them from the top only, to keep pipes from freezing. Thank you!

Veteran’s Day 2015

Veteran’s day is Wednesday, November 11th. This year, it has special significance, as 2015 marks the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II, arguably the single most defining event of the twentieth century. This war, and the events surrounding it, shaped the lives of an entire generation, both here in the U.S. and abroad.

Over one hundred thousand Mainers served in World War II, including many of our Schooner Estates residents. We offer our thanks on this special anniversary Veteran’s day, and all throughout the year. Also, join our own Judy Kuhn in a Veteran’s Day sing-a-long in the Village Green at 10:30 a.m. on November 11th.
