Maine to welcome LifeFlight's new, third helicopter in May
With its long sea-faring history, Maine has launched—and is still launching—many fine vessels from its coastal boatyards. Last week, our state had reason to celebrate another kind of launch, that of LifeFlight’s new third helicopter. The aircraft will soon be commissioned at its “home port” at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston.
Lions support “Night Sight” for LifeFlight of Maine
The Camden Lions Club recently presented LifeFlight of Maine with a donation of $2,000 to help purchase night vision goggles. Lions Club members are dedicated to the ideal of service, be it community service or service to those in need. Helen Keller dubbed Lions Club International the “Knights of the Blind,” so it seemed appropriate that the Camden Lions should make this donation to help give night sight to LifeFlight.
Prouts Neck resident raises money for LifeFlight on her trek to the South Pole
Prouts Neck and Connecticut resident Audrey Cadwallader has completed another wild adventure, and has been working to raise money for LifeFlight along the way. She travelled to Antarctica to ski from the 89th degree latitude to the 90th degree, better known as the South Pole. After an 8-day, frigid trek to the South Pole, she successfully climbed Vinson Massif in the Sentinel mountain range. At 16,050 feet above sea level, it is one of the “7 Summits,” the highest mountain peaks on each of the seven continents.
