Easton slates cleanup day

The Town of Easton will provide a collection point on Saturday, Oct. 27, at the town garage on the Fry Pan Road for household junk, such as appliances, tires, furniture, wood, etc. Wood products must be separated. No household garbage or used oil will be allowed. 

There will also be a collection point next to the recycling igloos behind the town office to dispose of electronics such as: televisions, computers, monitors, printers, fluorescent bulbs, circuit boards, cell phones, fax machines, scanners, laptops, DVD/VCR players, batteries and copiers. All recyclables must be deposited in the igloos behind the town office. This is for Easton residents only. 

Coordinate your fall cleaning with the town cleanup day and make use of our efforts to make Easton a more beautiful place to live. No commercial loads will be allowed. 

Call 488-6652 with any questions.

Yoga for kids

Children’s yoga is a different way to learn about the body. They will stretch, strengthen, gain flexibility and balance through short, age-appropriate activities, as well as learn how to calm body, breath and mind.

Yoga has been shown to improve concentration, memory, attention, problem-solving and decision-making, skills needed for learning. Relaxation is just as important as exercise, and participants will learn these concepts and more, all by having fun.

Classes will be held on Mondays from Oct. 15 through Nov. 5.  The cost is $20. We must have 10 participants to run the program.  Classes will take place at the Rec. until 4:15 p.m. Children must have a note to ride the bus from school to the Rec.  

Open to Kindergarten and up.  The class will be instructed by Julie French.

Craft Fair  

The annual Craft Fair is slated Saturday, Dec. 1, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Easton Elementary School.  

Crafters should reserve a space by emailing or calling Melissa at 227-4093.  Spots are $20 before Oct. 31 or until full, whichever comes first.  After October 31st it will increase to $40.

Registration money benefits the Small School Restoration in Easton.  There will also be raffles that directly benefit the Paige Aerin Lento Memorial.

Bone Builders  

Bone Builders class will meet Mondays and Fridays starting at 9:45 a.m. in the Recreation Room at the Manor.  

Bone Builders is a free strength training, balance and exercise program.  To be successful, one should commit to attending twice a week for six months.  Each one-hour class, held twice a week, will increase muscle strength, balance and bone density. This program is offered through the Aroostook Agency on Aging, Cary Medical Center and Easton Recreation Department.
