Cabin Fever Party

Come on out and connect with ASC friends, classmates, instructors, board and committee members at our first annual Cabin Fever Party since the pandemic.  

This party is a potluck of appetizers: Please bring a platter of ready-to-eat finger food -- savory or sweet -- and some wine (or other beverage) to share with the partygoers.  

Our social gatherings are a great way to introduce friends and neighbors to ASC, so bring guests!  

No registration is required.  

Storyteller Jude Lamb Portrays Ann Jarvis Greely


Join storyteller Jude Lamb to learn about the fascinating life of Ann Jarvis Greely. Ann was the granddaughter of John Black, the founder of Woodlawn in Ellsworth. Ann was a business owner and a well-known figure in the history of Ellsworth in the mid-to-late 1800s. Portraying Ann, Jude will tell of Ann’s Millinery Shop, as well as her efforts in Suffrage, Temperance, and many other good causes of her day.

“Acadia Senior College cancels events and classes when the MDI schools close for snow or weather events. When a delay occurs, ASC also cancels events or classes that start within the delay time period.”

This means that if there is a two-hour school delay, ASC morning classes will be cancelled, but afternoon classes will still be held unless otherwise instructed. (Some in-person classes may elect to hold a cancelled class by Zoom.)

We will post an announcement on our home page and notify students by email.

Check News Center Maine or WABI for school closing information. Look for AOS 91.
