Duffers: can’t drive the ball straight to save your life? Well, just up the road a piece, you can hit a bigger ball around with your foot (now there’s a can’t-miss opportunity!).

Proceeds from this event will benefit kids and young adults with developmental challenges throughout eastern Maine. Download a printable registration form and join the fun for a great cause!

And last but not least, if sailing ships don’t float your boat…there’s the annual Maine Whoopie Pie Festival, this Saturday in Dover-Foxcroft.

Lots of fun for young and old, including a kids’ fun run, music, whoopie pie eating contest, farmers market and more! Get all the details at the festival website.
