Event has passed

WALDOBORO — The First, of Waldoboro, on Route One. will host May’s monthly meeting, Wednesday, May 29, at 6 p.m. Come to learn from Danny Jackson, long-time School Board Chair for RSU 40, and from Debra Tillou, who will provide information about the Browntail moth.

Regional area school system 40 has seen changes in enrollment and is working to improve its state ratings by planning and cooperating with other regional school systems. Become better informed about the school district and the recent school budget vote, and ask questions of the School Board Chair.

Tillou will share her practical experience and knowledge of the Browntail moth infestation in Midcoast Maine. The moth is a health issue and an economic and property liability problem for Maine residents and vacationers, alike.

Tillou will provide hand-outs to help identify winter nests, recommend ways to remove the nests, treatments for the “poison ivy like” Browntail rash, and options for infestation management.

The Browntail moth is as dangerous as ticks, and it poses potential danger to Maine’s natural resources and economy and the general health of its citizens, according to Waldoboro Business Association, in a news release.
