TLC Summer Road Show!

While many folks were off on their summer vacations and adventures the TLC was hard at work promoting our program, fundraising for our up-and-coming field trips, and spreading the TLC spirit across each of the outer islands. We worked with parents, teachers, and students to host  a total of seven TLC events this summer on each of our participating islands! It was a LOT of work and a LOT of fun. Here are some of the highlights:

 

Our first event was on Cliff Island in July. We had lemonade and cookies made by the Cliff Island students and made bracelets after a presentation about the TLC program and why we are important! We sold t-shirts and bumper stickers and had a great time!

We flew our TLC show over to Matinicus where we did more bracelet making and presenting to a lot of new faces about the TLC program!

In August we headed to MDI for a three-day, back-to-back event extravaganza, starting with a Cake Walk on Great Cranberry Island.

We presenting to a whole lot of interested kiddos about the TLC and participated in an EPIC cake walk in which every-single participant won a prize! And then they all shared with each other. It was pretty sweet! 

We hopped over to Islesford the next day for ANOTHER cake walk with lots of new and happy faces. The baked goods at this event were out of this world! I was on a sugar AND TLC high all day long! It was intense.

Then it was on to Frenchboro for their annual Lobster Festival Celebration on island. The TLC set up shop at the school making hats with kids and giving a presentation to the TLC to a packed-house. Two students from Great Cranberry came all the way over to Frenchboro for the event! Talk about impressive TLC spirit!

Isle au Haut invited the TLC to help host their annual School Pie Auction! Let's just say that this island takes their pies VERY seriously! 

There were over 20 delicious pies and cakes made for the occasion and we raised over $3,000 for our field trips at this one event. WOW!

The last event of our road show was on Monhegan. We hosted an epic talent show to another packed-house. The energy in the room was TANGIBLE! 

There were LOTS of familiar faces at this event, including some very handsome and relatively famous TLC alumni. We had a rip-roaring time and celebrated all of the fun and love we find in the TLC everyday.

After seven events on seven islands in two months I am proud to say we raised nearly $6,000 for our up-and-coming field trips. Thank you to all who helped and participated to make our first ever TLC Summer Road Show a SMASHING success. Now, I need a nap.
