Portland SWEAT Project
FREE OUTDOOR WORKOUT

there is no better way to wake up and say good morning than with a group of strangers who all happen to be in one place because of an early morning workout

WHO? Good People. [age, athletic ability, social status, ethnicity – not applicable] In other words, this is for EVERYONE.

WHAT? FREE outdoor sweat session. Workouts are scalable and FUN. The sweat session will challenge you, the atmosphere will change you.

WHERE? Various locations in Portland (Baxter Boulevard/Back Cove Trail, Eastern Prom, City Hall.). See www.facebook.com/PortlandSweatProject/ for each week’s location

WHEN? Wednesdays at 6:29 AM – Rain or Shine

WHY? Because sometimes we need a reminder to wake up and get moving. It’s your accountability, motivation and reason to get in shape.

All you have to do is lace up your shoes and show up.
See you there.

Winter Solstice Lantern Walk @ Houghton Graves Park
Dec 21 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Winter Solstice Lantern Walk @ Houghton Graves Park | Harpswell | Maine | United States

Friday, Dec. 21, from 5-6 p.m.
Houghton Graves Park, 1714 Harpswell Islands Rd, Orr’s Island

Celebrate the winter solstice with a lantern walk and bonfire. Welcome the lengthening days with light, song and community. Walk along a short, easy trail lined with lanterns and luminaria. You are encouraged to bring a lantern to carry. At the end of the trail, warm up with songs, fire, hot cocoa and sweet treats.

All are welcome at this free, family-friendly event. Advance registration is requested to help us plan. Click here to register or contact Julia McLeod at outreach@hhltmaine.org or 207-837-9613.

Bring warm clothes, a flashlight, your lantern (optional), and a travel mug for your cocoa (to help us use fewer disposable cups). We will provide LED lights to place in your lanterns.

You are welcome to show up at any time during the hour. The lantern walk is self-guided. There will be cocoa, cookies and a campfire for the whole time, and there will be music for at least the first half hour.

Thank you to the Harpswell Community School PTO for co-sponsoring the event and to Lowe’s for donating the fire pits.

Come to a lantern making workshop on Saturday, December 8 from 9:30-11:30 a.m. at the Orr’s Island Library, 1699 Harpswell Islands Road, Orr’s Island.
