All students deserve a safe and welcoming school environment. Please join us in making this a reality.

All UMM faculty, staff, students, and local community members are invited to attend this training, designed to increase awareness, knowledge, and understanding about the LGBT community and the issues that surround the community. By participating in Safe Space training, we will become more effective non-LGBT allies as we confront discrimination against the LGBT community on campus and beyond. Safe Space training provides an active, safe learning environment for participants within the institutional setting, including discussion, activities, and informational materials.

A free panel discussion about the Washington County food system will be held Wednesday, December 11, 6-7:30 p.m., at Kimball Hall at the University of Maine at Machias.

Much of the food we consume is imported into the area from other counties, states and countries. This has impacts on local land use, the environment, employment and economics.

Panelists include Kevin Athearn, associate professor of environmental and community economics at the University of Maine at Machias; Carly DelSignore, co-owner and operator of Tide Mill Farm in Edmunds; Inez Lombardo, founder and coordinator of Machias Marketplace online farmers market; and David Thompson, store manager of the Machias Hannaford.

Following each panelist’s presentation, audience members will have an opportunity to ask questions. The event, which is open to the public, will be streamed live over the Internet and archived online (machias.edu/umm-live).

This is the third panel in the Food and Community Series sponsored by Psychology and Community Studies at UMM, UMaine Extension and the Libra Foundation.

MACHIAS, Maine — The Thespis Players, a student theatre group at the University of Maine at Machias, will present Mark Twain’s “Is He Dead?” on December 13-14 at 7 p.m. and on December 15 at 2 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center.

Set in the 1840s, the play revolves around French artist Jean-Francois Millet (played by Ryan French) as he struggles to pay his loans. His greatest desire is to bring comfort to his love, Marie Leroux (Amy Dowley). But this is nearly impossible due to his evil patron, Bastien Andre (Daniel Qualls), who also wishes to wed Marie. Desperate, Millet discovers his best option is to fake his own death so his artwork becomes more valuable.

With the help of his friends and students Chicago (Andrew Henderson), Dutchy (Alex Lonsdale), and O'Shaughnessy (Bob Gledhill), Millet disguises himself as his own widowed sister. Comedy ensues as Millet desperately attempts to portray a woman to his friends and admirers.

The play also stars UMM students Cheyenne Robinson as Papa Leroux, Greta Brown as Cecile Leroux, Genevieve Athearn-Hess as Madame Bathilde, Cassandra Day as Madame Caron, Eddie Socker as Thorpe/Riviere/The Sultan of Turkey, Brittany West as Charlie/The Emperor of Russia, and Danielle Daly as The King of France.

“Is He Dead?” is directed by Andy Siegler with Maggie Aubin as stage manager and Dylan Katon, Amanda Dickey, and Tyler Sheltry as technical crew.

Admission is free for UMM students and children ages five and under. Children ages 6-12 and seniors are $5, and all others are $7.

For more information, contact Andy Siegler at andrew.siegler@maine.edu or 207-232-0190.
