Easton students take part in Junior Exhibition


by Hillary Hallett

    Junior Exhibition was held at Easton Junior/Senior High School on Friday, Nov. 7. Thirteen members of the class spoke. The winner was Cody Embelton with his story of “The Three Little Pigs.” Kristen West came in second place, Kerrigan Arnett was third and Toria Tarbox placed fourth.

This is an extremely talented group of young men and women! Proceeds from the evening concessions went to the Casco Bay Exchange students who sold ice cream floats.

EPCO Harvest Party cancelled

    The Easton Parent Community Organization regrets to announce they have made the decision to not run the Harvest Party this year. Many conflicts arose with the incredible soccer season the EHS Bears played this year, and as we approach the holidays, calendars are no less busy. This event requires many helpers, who were not able to commit due to so many conflicts. They will offer an equally spectacular event later in the school year to celebrate reading! The group members apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
