3rd Annual First Night at SCAE
Celebrate New Year's Eve family-style with SCAE! We had a blast last year, and plans are bigger and better for this year!

For families with kids-this is the BEST New Year's Eve deal in town! The best part, we tire the kiddos out, so mom & dad can arrange for a babysitter and hit the town!
A Good Man with a Dog
with Roger Guay, MSAD #11 Adult Education
Come join the authors of the book, A Good Man with a Dog: A Game Warden’s 25 Years in the Maine Woods, by Roger Guay and Kate Clark Flora.
Guay is a game warden and certified K9 handler, with a successful career that would span twenty-five years and see him establish canine units as a staple of the game warden service. Guay takes readers into the watchful world of a warden, catching poachers and protecting pristine wilderness, and the sometimes CSI-like reconstruction of deer and moose poaching scenes.
His frequent companion is a little brown lab named Reba, who can find discarded weapons, ejected shells, hidden fish, and missing people.
Kate Clark Flora will talk about the fascinating world of true crime that led her into doing research for the Joe Burgess police fiction series she continues to write. A Good Man with a Dog explores Guay’s life as he and his canine partners are exposed to increasingly terrible events, from tracking down hostile poachers to searching for victims of violent crimes.
Books will be available to purchase.
