4 Saturday, November I0, 1990 The News HIGH SCHOOL CLASS SHAKER SURVEY COMPLETE POLAND SPRING-- Sixteen students of the Shaker Studies Class at Gray-New Gloucester High School have completed an important architectural survey of the Sabhathday Lake Shaker Village. For the first time in the Village's 207 year history, all of the exteriors of the major structures at the Shaker Village have been viewed and notes written about their architecture, history and environment. The completed surveys will be on file at the Shaker Library and at the Maine Historic Preservation Commission in Augusta. The project grew out of the Comprehensive Plan work begun two years ago in New Gloucester. The students, during several study visits to the Village, made note of exterior details. They then used the resources of the Shaker Library at Sabbathday Lake to gain historical data on the structures. Those resources included many books and periodicals on aspects of Shaker culture, a 19th century painting of the Village, photographs and post cards. The students were Sarah Thompson, Stephanie Neal, Betsey Morrison, Ian Hardesty, Tom Sawicki, Keith Bagley, Adam Bachelder, Brett Austin, Andrea Littlefield, Kenneth Karcher, Marnie Bragdon, Brandi Sawyer, Seth Thompson, Joshua Varney, Terri Stevens and Danielle Johnson. The instructor for the Shaker Studies Class, now in its tenth year as a course offering in SAD 15, is Robert Boggs. Leonard L Brooks A Birth Ecumenical Service Jared Brian Holmes.

We are asking you to bring something to share at the fellowship coffee following the service. One way we can share God's goodness to us is by reaching out to those less fortunate.

Weekend masses are celebrated at 4:30 pm on Saturday and 9:30am on Sunday. We invite you to come and celebrate with US. Have a really good week.
