Organic Wine & Cheese Tasting!

Aug 18, 5:00pm

Eat More Cheese

Free Organic Wine & Cheese Tasting this Thursday the 18th, from 5-7pm in Belfast! We will be featuring a special lineup of all Organic wines (including some sulfite free) from small producers. Most of the selection comes from Italy, with the exception of a small organic rose producer in France. We'll be featuring some relatively unknown and special wines, including Bardolino, Italian Sauvignon Blanc, Refosco and Rossese di Dolceacque. There will be 7 wines in all- red, white & rose. With each wine we'll be putting together a special cheese pairing to bring out the best flavors, aromas and textures from the wine & the cheese. We hope you can make it to this one!

Our Town Belfast shared Belfast Historical Society and Museum's photo.

Reminiscing about the good ol' days is a favorite pastime for Belfast old-timers. Don't miss this opportunity to hear about Belfast's scrappier history straight from the men who lived it!

“Growing Up in Belfast During the 1950s and 60s- Chickens, Sardines, Drive-In Movies and Bowling” will be the topic of the Belfast Historical Society’s meeting at 7:00 pm on Monday, August 22, in the Abbott Room at the Belfast Free Library. Join our panel guests, Frank Coombs and Mitch Littlefield as they tell their stories of growing up in Belfast.

“Growing Up in Belfast During the 1950s and 60s- Chickens, Sardines, Drive-In Movies and Bowling” will be the topic of the Belfast Historical Society’s meeting at 7:00 pm on Monday, August 22, in the Abbott Room at the Belfast Free Library. Join our panel guests, Frank Coombs and Mitch Littlefield as they tell their stories of growing up in Belfast. Frank shares some of his memories: “I grew up on Bridge Street when it was still US #1. I was born in Nov. of 1954 but can always remember my grandparents Frank Sr. and Vera and my parents Frank Jr. and Shirlene always having the bowling alleys. We played hide and seek, Red Rover, baseball in the big field, football in the street with no adult supervision or a worry or care about anything except winning what game you were playing. Times were different then.” Mitch writes of growing up on a farm in his recently published book, Memories of Shucking Peas, “As a boy I found plenty of time for play, adventure, and in many cases, mischief, either alone or with groups of the neighborhood kids/relatives, but I, along with all the members of the farm family, had responsibilities on the farms.” And join in the fun as we invite audience members to comment on projected Belfast images from this time. Belfast Historical Society programs are free and open to the public and are held April through October. FMI call 338-9229 or visit www.belfastmuseum.org.

Jennifer N Justin LaRochelleIf I could buy everything I need in this town at the same price I can out of town...I may consider it...However, more than half the time...out of all the stores in our town I am unable to find even our basic living necessities. I get tired of making numerous stops on my search to come out empty handed. I typically go out of town and never have this problem whatsoever. I say give us something we can work with.

Chalsey Ryan ResminiWell said Jennifer. If I could afford to shop in Belfast primarily I would. But when I can get twice the groceries out of town for the same price and get EVERYTHING I need in just a few stops instead of many I will go out of town.

Rene DuBois IIIIt seems members of Our Town Belfast only support local businesses when they aren't pushing to forcefully take their land rights by imminent domain. In that case local business becomes an evil corporation. #hypocrisy

Mary T BunkerWhen so many things we need are NOT sold in Belfast, it makes NO sense to drive there & then turn tail for Bangor, when we can simply drive to Bangor & be done with it. Who wants to shop 3-4 different stores to finish a shopping trip IF they can even find half of what they need in town? I need this, well that's in that store. I need that, well that's in this store. Oh, and I need the other thing, well, that you'll have to go to Bangor to get. Seriously? SMH

Our Town BelfastWe understand that not everything can be purchased within Belfast. Of course it can't - were not a huge population center the way Bangor and Augusta are. But we do encourage spending locally as much as we can when we can. Even a small shift makes a big difference. Before America left its downtowns for the highways and big box chains, there were more small independent grocers, general stores and department stores. There was more local competition. Everyone does the best they can with the time and dollars they have, and when you spend locally, that impact circulates through our community in the form of employment, tax revenue, business growth, more competition, etc. Let's support our neighborhood businesses when we can. This image is simply meant to be a reminder of that.
