The Lincolnville Community Library will host a free program on “Tanglewood 4-H Camp: Past, Present and Future,” Wednesday, October 16, at 7 p.m.
Former director Cindy Dunham and current director Jessica Decke will trace the history of Tanglewood and tell how the camp along the Ducktrap River in Lincolnville has served for nearly 80 years as a place for young people from Maine and beyond to connect to the natural world and develop valuable life skills.
Sharing stories, photos and people’s memories, they’ll tell about the role the Civilian Conservation Corps played in developing this part of Midcoast Maine starting in 1936 and why the Bangor-Brewer YWCA program for girls thrived at Tanglewood for so many years.
They will also describe Tanglewood’s current connection to 4-H and the role it plays statewide as a leader in positive youth development and environmental education through its school programs, day and residential summer camps, adventure trips, and teen leadership programs.
The library is at 208 Main Street in Lincolnville Center. For more information, call 706-3896 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
