Project presentations in Rockland and Searsmont, Maine

Ben Angulo presented the Amazon Pueblo project at two location during the months of October and November.  The first was at the Rockland Public Library.  While this was a small crowd (only 9 people) it did generate leads for the selling of handcrafts for the project and cash donations (thanks!).

The next presentation was for the Historical Society, located in Searsmont.  Ben was joined by another of the project's directors (Julie Russo) without whose help the presentation would not have been possible.  This was the best-attended of our non-school presentation, with over 30 people participating.  Many great questions were asked.  After the presentation we met for delicious baked-goods and apple cider.  Thanks!
