    This month's Celebrate CTL! Auction was a big success! Faculty, caregivers, and community members enjoyed an exciting evening connecting as a community and raising funds for the Center for Teaching and Learning. We raised $9,625 with the silent and live auctions, $660 in Bucks for Books, and $1,260 from the ever popular Summer Fun Basket Raffle (congratulations to raffle winner Maria Jenness) for a total of $11,545!  We could not have done this without the generosity of local businesses, families, and teachers.  

    We are grateful to our donors, many of whom are local organizations and business owners: Boothbay Harbor Memorial Library, Boothbay Harbor Shipyard, Boothbay Harbor Yacht Club, Boothbay Railway Village Museum, Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, Cozy's Dockside, Crow Point Yoga, Eventide Specialties, Farnsworth Art Museum, Homeport Supplies, In the Clover, Lincoln Theater, Linekin Bay Resort, Maine & Ivy, Maine Island Trail Association, Maine Maritime Museum, Mexicali Blues, Monkey C Monkey Do, Newagen Seaside Inn, Chewonki Campground, Perch Pilates, Portland Sea Dogs, Knits by RYKS, Rock Paper Scissors, Sandcastle Entertainment, Sarah's Scoops, Sherman's Maine Coast Book Shop, Skidompha Library, Split Rock Distillery, Stonewall Kitchen, The Beach Plum Company, The Kingfisher & the Queen, The Tipsy Butler Bed & Breakfast, Tidal Transit, Tin Top Cider, Treats, and Women of Substance. We encourage everyone to support local organizations, shop local, and take advantage of all the services and experiences our local community has to offer.
