Veterans receive cookies

The Maine Veterans Administration Health Care System partnered with Girl Scouts recently to help with the distribution of cookies to veteran residents of the Togus Community Living Center.

The scouts distributed some of the 1,168 cases, or 13,944 boxes, of Girl Scout Cookies that Maine residents purchased for them during the 2012 cookies sales campaign.

Library donation

The Kennebunk Free Library has received an original illustration by Kennebunk artist Steve Hrehovcik to display in its Maine Children’s Book Illustrators Gallery.

The pen and ink and pastel illustration is of a page from the children’s book “Julie’s Climb,” written by Wells author David Morse.

The illustration will be on permanent loan to the gallery, which is located adjacent to the Children’s Room on the lower level of the library.
