Chicken Hatch Part 5 - They're HERE!

The chicks are here!  They arrived one day early!  All four hatched out with the most beautiful of hues and markings.  They are Auracana's so they don't look anything like their surrogate mom.  It is such a blessing to watch this miracle of life unfolding right before our eyes!  Broody accepted them right away and is doing a nice job mothering them and taking care of them!  Enjoy the video!  It's priceless!

Keeping Sullivan Clean & Helping Our Environment

Keeping Sullivan Clean & Helping Our Environment

The planet needs all the help it can get in keeping it clean and vibrant for all of us to enjoy. Many people help by cutting down on the amount of trash they produce. Others will recycle their items and take them to a recycling center weekly. Every week the town of Sullivan has their transfer station open for the people living in town to drop off their household trash & bulky items. They are located on the Tunk Pond Road. The hours of operation are Sunday's 8-12 & 1-4p.m. Also summer hours start June 16th on Wednesday's 1-5p.m. in addition to the regular hours.

In order to take bags of your household trash to the Sullivan Transfer Station you need to buy and place a trash sticker on the bag for $1.50 each. This is good for one 25lb bag. If you use a contractor bag you will need to put 2 trash stickers on that bag.

MFS staff members will be expanding their search to other coastal areas in Down East Maine.

Sagadahoc County Recognizes National Birth Defects Prevention Month and Folic Acid Awareness Week

Sagadahoc County Recognizes National Birth Defects Prevention Month and Folic Acid Awareness Week

Sagadahoc County Recognizes Birth Defects Prevention Month and Folic Acid Awareness Week

January is National Birth Defects Prevention Month.

Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention states that, “Major birth defects are conditions that cause structural changes in one or more parts of the body; are present at birth; and have a serious, adverse effect on heath, development, or functional ability.“ Approximately one in every 33 babies is born with a birth defect.

This year, National Birth Defects Prevention Month focuses on one of the most common types of birth defects, congenital heart defects. Each year, nearly 40,000 infants in the United States are born with heart defects, which are the leading cause of death during the first year of life. As medical care and treatment have improved, those with congenital hearth defects are living longer lives.

January 8-14 is National Folic Acid Awareness Week.

Not all birth defects can be prevented.
