You are invited to participate in a research project being conducted by the Penobscot Nation Department of Natural Resources and James Elliott, a master’s student (M.S.) in Forest Resources at the University of Maine, Orono. His faculty sponsor is Dr. Sandra De Urioste-Stone from the School of Forest Resources at the University of Maine, Orono. The purpose of the survey is to better understand your attitudes and views surrounding wildlife and wildlife disease management so the Penobscot Nation Department of Natural Resources can be better informed for effective decision making.

We would greatly appreciate if you would be willing to share your views. The survey should only take about 10-15 minutes to complete. You must be 18 years of age to participate. After completing the online survey you will have the option to be entered into a raffle to win one of three $50 Cabela’s gift cards. Survey responses will be kept anonymous.

The 10th annual Ralph K. Thomas Road Race/Walk was held Sunday November 4th and once again it was a great success. We had over 75 participants that ran and walked the course to help raise funds and awareness for the issue of diabetes in the community and to also honor a great Tribal member and role model, Ralph Thomas. Many thanks go out to the volunteers that made this event go off without a hitch. Without them giving their time, Sunday’s race and having it continue on for 10 years, could not have been possible.

VOLUNTEERS:Dale Lolar, Dee Love, Bri Lolar, Kaya Lolar, Ginny Everett , Leya Bryant, Charlie Bouchard, Tricia Stewart, Mackenzie Stewart, Maulian Dana, Lloyd Bryant, Ian Lolar, Maria Girourd, Crystal Sutton , Erika Honey, Debbie Kondilis, Bob Bryant, Chris Almy, Katherine Bell, Judd Esty-Kendall, Denney Beers, Abbey McCarthy, Josh Woodbury, Officer Dan Conary.

We have six shirts left from the race for sale at $10 each. (1)- Large and (5) –medium. Please contact the Public Safety Dispatch at 817-7358 if you would like to purchase one.


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.
