PSA, A MESSAGE FROM SPECTRUM GENERATIONS CEO, GERARD QUEALLY

This time of year brings much change to our environment.  The leaves change color; sportsmen get ready for hunting season; and shorts and sandals get replaced with sweaters and boots.  It is also a critical time of year for Maine’s older population.  The Medicare Open Enrollment Period is from October 15th through to December 7thand Spectrum Generations is here to help older adults of central Maine stay informed and answer their questions about Medicare, Medicare Advantage, and MaineCare, Medigap and other programs and benefits that supplement Medicare.

Each year Medicare health and drug plans can make changes to things like premium cost, coverage and which providers and pharmacies are in their networks.  People in a Medicare health or prescription drug plan should always review the materials their plans send them, like the “Evidence of Coverage” (EOC) and “Annual Notice of Change” (ANOC) and if their plans are changing, they should make sure their plans will still meet their needs for 2016.

The Kennebec Performing Arts Company is pleased to announce that we are welcoming new musicians for our 2015-2016 season.   This is an exciting opportunity to join an organization with a long history of making music in the greater Augusta area. Under the direction of Charles T. Milazzo, our three ensembles – an auditioned 4-part chorus, a large wind ensemble, and a jazz band - perform in at least two concert series each year. Our musicians are your incredibly talented neighbors and fellow community members – everyone from students to music teachers; from working professionals to the retired young-at-heart.

We are seeking both vocalists and instrumentalists. The ability to read music is required.   Our chorus rehearses Monday nights from 6:30-8:30, at the Hope Baptist Church in Manchester – first rehearsal is Monday, September 14.  Our Jazz Band and Wind Ensemble rehearse in several area high schools on Tuesday nights from 5:45-7:00 and 7:00-8:30, respectively. First rehearsal is at Cony High School on Tuesday, September 1.

Please contact Chuck Milazzo at 685-9653 to learn more about how to join us.
