Easter egg hunt returns
Falmouth Congregational Church will once again host its annual Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday at 267 Falmouth Road.

Each of the 60-minute events will consist of a magic show or juggling show, followed by an egg hunt. Each attendant needs to wear a mask and bring a basket for each child.
Participants must pre-register in advance at falmouthcongregationalchurch.org/easter-egg-hunt-registration.
For more details, call the church at 781-3413.

Lessons to learn from Maine’s bicentennial
Old Berwick Historical Society will present an online lecture at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday titled “Commemorating Maine Statehood: What can we learn from the bicentennial?”
This illustrated presentation and discussion, headed by Dr. Liam Riordan, explores the statehood process in Maine that culminated in 1820 with formal separation from Massachusetts. That struggle engaged a range of challenging public issues that are still recognizable today.
Participants can register for the online lecture on the Old Berwick Historical Society’s website. Admission is free to members, with a $5 suggested donation for non-members. The lecture is open to the public.
For more details or to register, call 384-0000 or visit oldberwick.org.

New research considered in Lyme disease program
The Camden Public Library will host Rika K. Keck, of NY Integrated Health and the Global Lyme Alliance Ambassador Program, for an informational, free online presentation about Lyme disease risks and prevention at 6 p.m. March 30 via Zoom.
The program is aimed at bringing to light some of the newest studies and treatments related to Lyme disease. Keck will discuss various co-infections and viral activation that can keep many Lyme-sick individuals misdiagnosed. She will touch on the impact that COVID-19 is having on the Lyme community, and review the “2020 Guidelines for Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment of Lyme Disease,” published in November 2020. Participants in the program will also learn how to protect themselves, their children, and pets against a tick bite, and what to do if a tick is found. There will be an opportunity for audience questions at the end of the presentation.
