Founder of Pineland Suzuki School to Bring Good Friday Concert to Columbia Street

Joseph Haydn’s “The Seven Last Words of Christ” for string quartet to be performed at Columbia Street Baptist Church, April, 18.

Twenty years ago, violinist Betsy Kobayashi of Manchester, ME, had a dream. Her dream was to bring to Maine, Dr. Shinichi Suzuki’s lifetime belief that music lies in the heart of any and every child: “I believe that every child can become superior, and my confidence has never been betrayed.” Betsy studied under Dr. Suzuki for 7 years, graduating from the Talent Education Institute in Matsumoto, Japan. Since the early 1990’s, hundreds of Maine children have found their voices through violin, viola and cello at the Pineland Suzuki School.

AAA: Pedestrians, Bicyclists and Motorists Should Follow Simple Steps to Prevent Collisions

Better weather requires your full attention and more sharing of the roads

As the sun starts to shine and the warm weather invites more outdoor activity: AAA Northern New England urges everyone to follow traffic safety laws and use good common sense to prevent injuries and fatalities.  The transition from winter to spring results in motorists sharing the road with more pedestrians, bicyclists and motorcycles.

“This time of year our sidewalks and road conditions can be treacherous, said Pat Moody manager of public affairs AAA Northern New England. “Our roads are riddled with pot holes and frost heaves and lined with snow banks and puddles. The conditions can sometimes funnel pedestrians into the roadway and  cause bicycles, motorcycles and automobiles to swerve unpredictably or lose control due to road hazards.”
