More than 100 college students interning this summer with some of Maine's top companies enjoyed a three-course dinner this evening with two dozen CEOs and top executives from those same companies. The dinner was part of the Libra Foundation's Summer in Maine program, which promotes internships in Maine and provides each year's summer interns with networking and recreational events.

Tonight's party took place at the Portland Country Club in Falmouth. Speakers included Bill Ryan, the retired chairman of TD Bank, part owner of the Maine Red Claws and trustee for numerous organizations, including the Libra Foundation.

We also heard from Jonathan Ayers, the chairman, president and CEO of IDEXX. The speeches took place during the salad course, allowing the interns to chat with the CEOs seated at their tables during the main course. As many people pointed out, it was the kind of high level access that students aren't likely to find at a big city internship.

Be sure to pick up a copy of the July 1 edition of the Maine Sunday Telegram, where I'll have more photos and details from the party.

Until then, I hope to see you out and about.
