The Savage Family Turkey Trot 5k ( Run/Walk) @ Bug Light Park
Nov 22 @ 9:00 am
The Savage Family Turkey Trot 5k ( Run/Walk) @ Bug Light Park | South Portland | Maine | United States

What’s more fun than a holiday race?? Racing the Second Annual Savage Family Turkey Trot 5k at Bug Light, on Thanksgiving morning !!! This going to be a fun family event !!! This is the second annual run of the Turkey Trot to honor Nathan Savage. Nathan was an avid runner, biker, triathlete and family man. He lost his life to a fatal heart attack on July 2, 2016. This was just three weeks before he was set to compete in his first full Ironman event, and just months prior to his 40th birthday. This year’s event will fall on November 22rd.

The proceeds will stay local and be given to the Nathan Savage Memorial Fund, a fund created by the Savage Family with the South Portland Community Center that gives financial assistance to any child wanting to participate in one of their youth development programs. One of Nathan’s dreams was to help kids get off the couch and get out there and be active and healthy and we thought this was the perfect way to honor his dream. So, prepare to have that extra helping at dinner, or that second ( or third) piece of pie and join us!!! Run, walk, bring your friends, your family and maybe even your well behaved dog ( on leash, of course). Start your Thanksgiving day off and support an amazing family and a great cause.

T-shirts to all those donating $20 or more before 11/15/2018.

New Moon Yoga Weekend @ Mt. Chase Lodge
Jan 4 – Jan 6 all-day
New Moon Yoga Weekend @ Mt. Chase Lodge | Patten | Maine | United States

Start the new year with a weekend full of reflection and quiet adventuring. Move inward with optional sunrise practices, enjoy gourmet meals, and bring your snowshoes for a guided nighttime trek.

You will travel outward, turn off your headlamps, and experience some of the darkest skies and brightest stars around.

New to yoga or an advanced yogi? This weekend is suited for all levels and the limited size of the retreat means there will be plenty of personalized attention. Take some time for yourself and enjoy a weekend of yoga, positivity, and intention-setting.

Guests will arrive Friday afternoon and depart on Sunday afternoon, with ample unscheduled time in between.

Private or shared rooms available. Rates include two nights of lodging and meals.
