Summer 2017 Publisher's Note

When we think of Summer in Maine, we think of our natural beauty which of course includes our mountains, forests, ponds, lakes, rivers, and our magnificent coastline. Most of us will also think of lobsters.

In this issue we have a story about a multigenerational family who make their living as lobstermen. The Hawkes family of Cundy’s Harbor share their passion for this great Maine heritage.

Maine is also very fortunate to have inspired world class artists who have captured so much of our culture, beauty, and more. In our story on Jamie Wyeth, we have a glimpse into the world of the most famous family of Maine artists. Jamie shares with us that his grandfather, NC Wyeth, his father, Andrew Wyeth, and Maine’s natural beauty, have all been an inspiration to his art.

As an artist, Jamie has become an iconic part of Maine and its promotion, as much as LL Bean and Down East Magazine have been in their respective ways.

We all have plenty to enjoy and be proud of here in the Great State of Maine. Yet, our greatest asset is Senior Power.

Maine has the highest volunteer rate in the nation, due to the high level of participation of our senior population. You, our senior partners, serve as mentors, are the philanthropists, and ensure that Maine continues to have its small-town, friendly, community way of life. Senior Power is Maine’s greatest natural resource!

To all of our senior partners, thank you and enjoy the summer.
