A look at our communities through photos.

The Crutches 4 Africa collection truck resides outside Wilbur’s of Maine Chocolate on U.S. Route 1 in Freeport. Through the Freeport Rotary Club, Tom Wilburn, co-owner of the company, has started a local chapter of Crutches 4 Africa, which sends used crutches and other mobility devices to people in Africa and other parts of the world. Lynn Plourde, who writes children’s books, dressed for the occasion as she read to children last Thursday at the Freeport Community Center. Freeport Community Services and L.L. Bean partnered for the Literacy Day, as children from pre-kindergarten to second grade, as well as older siblings, attended. While some people were out shopping in winter coats and scarves last Thursday in Freeport, spring flowers outside a vacant building, next to The Gap, presented a warmer picture. Chris Shaw, general manager of Freeport Grill Restaurant & Pub at 175 Lower Main St., stands next to the raised beds the restaurant will use to grow fresh produce for its meals this summer. Freeport Grill is the new name for the eatery, formerly known as Freeport Seafood Company.
