Eastport News Miss Inez Kierstead - Tel. 853-2751 EASTPORT SESQUICENTENNIAL EVENTS The month of August will see three events in Eastport to celebrate "Maine's Sesquicentennial" year. The first event this month was a "moonlight cruise" from Eastport to Deer Island and back, with about sixty people enjoying the trip aboard the "Quoddy Dam". The moon rose, al- though a bit subdued because of the light fog, but it was bright enough to make a path on the water and light up the surround- ing area. The weather was mild and an old record player played in the background as the boat cruised on the "moonlit Bay". The second event this month was an open meeting of the Border Historical Society at the Episcopal Parish Hall, when L. Keith Ingersoll, Curator of Canadian History at the N.B. Museum, St. John, was the featured speaker. After an intro- duction by John P. Grady, Mr. Ingersoll spoke of John Allan Moses, who was born on Indian Island and later moved to Grand Manan where he became a taxidermist and naturalist.

EASTPORT HOSPITAL AUXILIARY CONCLUDES SUCCESSFUL YEAR The Eastport Memorial Hospital Auxil- iary has concluded a very productive year. In November a refrigerator was purchased and installed in the laboratory. In May, they purchased a fully equipped stretcher for the Emergency room. They spent the sum of $624. for this equipment The June Tea was a success and netted $277. The 1970-71 year begins with the first meeting on Sept. 21. It is hoped that many will join the Auxiliary at this time and help with the supplies and new equip- ment needed to keep the hospital "up to date". DOCTORS "ON CALL'" This summer, in order to insure that a doctor is always available for emergencies in the community on weekends, the three doctors on the staff of the Eastport Mem- orial Hospital, began a system of alternat- ing weekends when they are available at the hospital, thus assuring adequate cover- age for the community at all times and also giving the doctors some weekends off.
