Penobscot Nation Youth Program
The Penobscot Nation Youth Program is looking for donations to help increase and enhance activities and programs for the youth. The youth are the foundation of our future and needs our help and support to create positive opportunities that will only strengthen our community. There are many ways to help: monetary donations, donations of supplies, and a donation of time with the youth. You can invest in many things in life and you may win some and lose some, but when you invest in the youth you win every time. The youth needs your help more than ever and every little bit helps.
Please contact John Neptune at 207-659-3490 or Brittney Fields at 207-217-1906 to let us know how you would like to help. A payroll deduction form has been attached, if that is a way you would like to support the youth of this community.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

The 10 th Annual
Ralph K. Thomas 8k Run, 2.5 Mi. walk
For the past 10 years, several of us in the community have organized and put on a road race, to help raise money and awareness for diabetes, a disease as we know that affects many tribal members. This race also honors and recognizes a great Penobscot runner, Ralph Thomas, who is a member of the Maine Running Hall of Fame and is a role model to our youth. The race is also a way to generate interest in running and walking within our community, which as research shows, helps in combatting diabetes. The event is a great way to exercise and then meet and talk over a light meal. We are also looking for donations for the event and this can be done until Friday November 2nd.
