2.  NEWS/ANNOUNCEMENTS/EVENTS
      A.DESIGNING THE MAINE LANDSCAPE
     On October 22nd, the Office of the Vice President for Administration and Finance, Raymond H. Fogler Library, and the University Bookstore will host “Designing the Maine Landscape,” an event that brings together authors and speakers to share stories of historic architecture and landscape design projects within the state of Maine.  This event will be held in the Wells Conference Center from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 
     Event organizers were inspired by the recently published book, Designing the Maine Landscape, a collaborative effort between the Maine Olmsted Alliance and Down East Books, co-written by Theresa Mattor and Lucie Teegarden.  The authors will share the day with a focus on the University of Maine, whose Campus Planning Committee members have been working on strategic landscape planning for the University. Other speakers include Greg Havens, a principal at Sasaki Associates, who worked with the Campus Planning Committee to create the Campus Master Plan,  Malcolm Collins from WBRC Architects and Earle Shettleworth, State Historian and Director of the Maine Historic Preservation Commission. An event registration fee of $10.00 will cover lunch featuring Maine ingredients.  For more information and to register for the event, please contact Kathleen McIntyre at <mcintyre@maine.edu> or 207-581-1541.
