Masterpieces and Messages Japanese Cherry Blossom Spring 2020


with Angie Butler Welch, Piscataquis Valley Adult Education Cooperative

Calendar Mar 3, 2020 at 12 pm

Ever Done a Paint and Sip? Angie puts her own little spin on it! Not only will she walk you step by step through your painting, giving you a variety of choices on colors and even canvas size, BUT because Angie is a professional Medium and Psychic, everyone will receive a mini intuitive reading / messages based on their painting! It’s amazing the insight, healing and guidance that comes through, just from YOUR painting! All materials are provided. 

Instructor Bio: From a very early age I was able to see and connect with angels and people who had passed, and have been delivering those messages since I was a teenager.  As a lifelong spiritual student, I have spent many years learning and nurturing these abilities. In more recent years, I found myself drawing and painting, while channeling messages.  This newfound gift led to my offering of "Art Mediumship". Leap of Faith is the name I gave my personal journey to create and deliver the messages of my soul, as well as the name I bestowed upon my office (Leap of Faith Soul Space).  When working with a client, I am able to connect with the angels, your guides, and loved ones in spirit who have passed. When doing art mediumship I create a personal intuitive piece, complete with the message(s) that Spirit wants me to share with you.  As so much of our life depends on free will, I also offer "Akashic Records" readings, perfect for when you need guidance as to how certain choices may unfold in the future. The "Akashic Records" is the energy dimension that records the eternal journey of your soul and offers profound insight, understanding and healing energy.  As a healer, I am trained in the powerful and effective healing modality of Pranic Healing. I am honored to have my spiritual gifts and feel it is my responsibility to share the truth that love is eternal, life is a gift of learning, and we are all connected. I would be honored to work with you as a client, or as a student in one of many spiritual development classes.  Namaste. FMI on your instructor, please visit

Maine Model Yacht Club


with Jim Dill & Helicopter Huck, Five Town CSD Adult & Community Education

Calendar Mar 3, 2020 at 5 pm, runs for 4 weeks

Calling all sailing enthusiasts of any age to band together to form the Maine Model Yacht Club and to join in on a model yacht building workshop. It's suggested participants purchase a US 12 or CR-914 model yacht kit if you prefer a traditional-style build, or a Dragonforce 65 or a Dragonflite 95 model yacht kit for a quicker modern-style build. This workshop is the organization of a club and a friendly networking opportunity to share the joy and community around model yacht building and sailing, more than an instructor-led course. Come enjoy building and conversing alongside other enthusiasts and tinkerers! Participants are also welcome to bring in old model yachts, other remote control boats, airplanes, drones, helicopters, or any type of models to compare, contrast, and talk shop. The Maine Model Yacht Club will host regattas and sailing/flying get-togethers throughout the warmer months. Please, shoot over questions to about different model yachts to purchase before the workshop or just to connect. The suggested model yachts with remote control and receiver range from $220- $750.
