We recently received a thoughtful note in response to this post about our nephew, Little J. A mother and reader wrote to tell us her two-year old son also has a rare undiagnosed syndrome. He attends The Children’s Center in Augusta. The center offers kids with disabilities and their families educational and therapeutic support through a variety of programs. The center is hosting a fundraising event called The Chili Chowder Challenge next weekend, and asked if we could post about it. We’re wondering how we missed this incredible fundraiser in the past!
Some call the Children’s Center Chili Chowder Challenge the best in the state, and it’s not uncommon for families to return year after year. Even if you don’t live anywhere near Augusta, you’ll want to make the trip. Where else can you enjoy delicious food from local restaurants and entertain your children for a few hours? You’ll find craft tables, parachute play, live music, storytelling, face painting and donut decorating, to name a few. While the kids are having fun, you can participate in the live auction or check out the goodies at the silent auction tables.

On this sunny March Friday, with the promise of warmer days ahead, it’s nice to recall last summer. A highlight of our August was filming a short piece as Maine Insiders for the Maine Department of Tourism. The two-day shoot took us from Wolfe’s Neck Woods State Park in Freeport to Popham Beach and all of our favorite places in between.
