Quotes

"Rural U, since its inception, has seen rapid and exponential growth," states Scott Voisine, UMFK's Dean of Community Education, "This grant will provide for the continued development of the necessary infrastructure, program outcomes and assessment, and student-centered technology necessary to make the program a model for early post-secondary education in rural Maine and in other rural communities."
Richardson, a self-made artist of the past ten years, takes an exploratory approach to style, and says, "I am well aware that more than ever my art is reflecting the subconscious of that rambling entity I call a mind. I think it will be clear to viewers that I've been in a rather whimsical mood for a couple of years now."
"Everyone enjoyed the first kitchen party, including the musicians. The musicians got a chance to perform with different people. Come and see what good family entertainment can be. So, get your family together and join us on the 18th... it's opened to everyone" said Roger Damboise, UMFK alumni association board member and chair
“When I asked, "Have you ever made ployes without baking powder, they said 'no, why would you do that?'” Dumais said. When he asked his 93-year-old great-aunt how her mother made ployes more than 100 years ago, he said his aunt told him, "'Oh yes. She had this bucket on the shelf of the cookstove. She would take from that to make batter from ployes."
