Three Sisters under one roof


How wonderful is this? Three sisters have all made Schooner Estates their home.  Irene     Delorme (far right) and her sister Theresa Deschenes (middle) and their husbands lived across the street from each other in Auburn for 59 years. Their sister Florence Raymond also lived in Auburn with her husband and brought up five children in the family homestead where she was born. When Florence and Bert moved to Schooner recently, the three        sisters were     reunited and still all live in     Auburn. We are happy to have them here!


Entertainment Galore


Schooner Estates is a great place to live.  Our community offers its residents a wide variety of entertainment and socializing events to make each day fun filled and interesting.  Take a look below and you will see what I mean!

Schooner is proud to be hosting a Thursday afternoon performance of Russian pianist Ksenia Kostelanetz, on August 28th at 2:30 p.m.  Ksenia is thirteen years old.  She was born into a musical family of Russian Immigrants and  started her piano studies at the age of four. She is currently a student of Stephen Swedish and Frank Glazer.


On Thursday, July 10th we welcomed two    amazing classical pianists:

Mark Demidovich, a native of Kostroma,      Russia. He has been warmly received by Schooner Estates residents during the past two seasons.  And Vasily Panteleev, 24, from Ukraine, his first trip to Maine. Gifted in languages as well as in music.
