The American Red Cross, due to a shortage of

The Attic Thrift Shop
When we were just having a bad rain storm at the
shop last week little did we know what the rest of some of the local
communities were getting. The destruction was just awful and that's
when we hope that our help can come into play. If you were a victim
of the storm, we at Out Of The Attic Thrift Shop, at 345 Suncook
Valley Road in Chichester will help you with whatever we have
available that you need. Bonnie works with the Red Cross and that's
what we're all about - HELPING!! We help all communities, so if we
can help give a CALL to Ruthi at 435-9339. Tues., Wed., Thurs. from
8-4 or Saturday ask for Bon or Daryl, 10-4.
We are continuing to accept any donations of all
kinds as usual. We are also working on our backpack projects for
school and we expect there will be more needing them this year with
the economy, so if you can help in any way, please do. If you own a
business, imagine if every employee brought in just one item to go
in our back packs what a sight that would be. Imagine the delight on
a child's face who thought he wouldn't have a new backpack for
school and he gets one all filled with all kinds of goodies so he or
she can have what all the other children have. We work with school
nurses to know where the real need is.
Wish List: Canning jars and equipment.
University of Maine at Farmington Announces
Dean's List for Spring 2008 Semester
University of Maine at Farmington has announced
its Dean's List for the Spring 2008 semester. UMF maintains a Dean's
List each semester for those students completing a minimum of 12
credits in courses producing quality points. A student whose grade
point average equals or exceeds 3.8 will be listed with high
academic achievement. A student whose grade point average for the
semester is less than 3.8 but equal to or greater than 3.5 will be
listed with academic achievement. Any incompletes must be
satisfactorily completed before the student is honored with Dean's
List status. Academic achievement awarded at commencement is based
on all course work taken at UMF.
Established in 1864, University of Maine at
Farmington is Maine's selective public liberal arts college. Offered
in a supportive and collaborative campus setting, the University
features high-quality baccalaureate programs in the arts and
sciences, human services, and teacher education and the recent
addition of a Master of Science in Education graduate degree
program. With enrollment limited to just 2,000 students, it is about
the same size as many of New England's most selective private
colleges and offers many of the same advantages, yet at an
affordable price. University of Maine at Farmington has built a
national reputation for academic excellence by placing students
first and foremost. Small class sizes, a close student-to-faculty
ratio, and valuable outside the classroom learning opportunities are
the keys to its success. In its 2008 guide, U.S.News & World Report
named it "One of America's Best Colleges" for the eleventh
