Happy August!

As I write, the sun is beaming down outside. The Abbe's annual archaeological field school is happening this week, and what beautiful weather it has been! News and photos have been pouring in from the field, and it sounds like they've uncovered several exciting artifacts already. Visit our facebook page for updates and photos.

August at the Abbe is a happening time; we are offering several programs each week and, beginning August 12 and running through September 6, the Abbe will host our first ever artist-in-residence program: a birchbark canoe build with David Moses Bridges, Passamaquoddy, and Steve Cayard. Our Park Series, offered in collaboration with Acadia National Park, continues this month and next with demonstrations in beadworking, working with birchbark, ash pounding and several concerts. For our complete schedule of public programming, visit our calendar page.

We look forward to seeing you at the Abbe this August, as we all celebrate those last beautiful days of summer. Looking ahead to fall, we are excited for the second Pecha Kucha MDI event in September and then, before we know it, Tea and Popovers will be rolling around again! Happy August to all.
