Joe is once again spreading the word about The University of Southern Maine’s Veterans Upward Bound program, which serves up to 125 income eligible, first-generation veterans per year from across the state. Of Maine’s 119,058 veterans, 7,954 are low-income and 89,179 do not have a bachelor’s degree and are highly likely to be potential first-generation college students.

Veterans may apply to attend the college of their choice. Joe is once again spreading the word about,

joe says "whit xmas"

Joe is once again promoting South Portland's very own Lyric Music Theater, whose current production is Irving Berlin's White Christmas. A Christmas card comes to life with this story of a song-and-dance-team putting on a show in a magical Vermont inn and falling for a stunning sister act in the process. White Christmas is full of dancing, laughter, and some of the greatest songs ever written! Give everyone the gift they're dreaming of with this merry and bright holiday musical!

Founded in 1952, Lyric Music Theater is community theater at its finest. The purpose and mission of this wonderful organization is is to foster and develop interest in the theater in the Greater Portland Area, particularly as applied to music and drama, and to provide a medium for the expression of such interest. The White Christmas production will be running from November 30th to December 16th- Joe hopes you get a chance to check it out!

Be sure to click "Load More Posts" at the bottom of this page to see all the messages that have been up on the Time/Temp! If you've ever found yourself or someone else asking what Joe is trying to say up there, then be sure to tell your friends, www.PortlandTimeTemp.com is the place to find out.

joe says "wcyy mark"

Once again Joe is spreading the gospel about the Center for Grieving Children, a Portland-based organization that serves more than 4,000 grieving children, teens, families, and young adults annually through peer support, outreach, and education. Since its founding in 1987, the Center for Grieving Children has served more than 66,000 children, teens, and their families.

One of Joe's favorite local radio stations, WCYY, is lending a hand to the CGC with another year of the Mark-a-thon. When you donate to the Center for Grieving Children, DJ Mark will play ANY song, ANY style by ANY artist. Listen all week, around the clock on 94.3 WCYY!

Joe offers his thanks to the folks at the Center for Grieving Children for the amazing work they do, and also sends his thanks WCYY for helping a great cause. Find more about the Center for Grieving Children here, and more about this campaign here.

joe says "myro plvr"

This weekend Joe's spreading the word about The Maine Youth Rock Orchestra, an organization that's redefining music education for students of all backgrounds and demographics through collaboration with national artists, creating transformational experiences. Students who participate in MYRO ensembles are able to express their individuality through a classical skill set, while performing concerts with nationally-recognized artists that reinforce their love for alternative genres from classical. MYRO participants currently reside in southern and central Maine, representing at least 17 schools and 10 districts. Rehearsing once a week, MYRO brings together a community of individuals that share their love for all genres of music and the passion to perform in concerts, demonstrating what it is like to be a rock star orchestral musician at an early age.

This Sunday, December 2nd, the Boston-based chamber ensemble Palaver Strings and MYRO join together for an unforgettable collaboration with pianist Ben Cosgrove, who is hailed as “electric and exhilarating.” The event will be held at Brick South on Thompson's Point in Portland, and Joe is sure it will be inspiring.

Joe urges you to learn more about MYRO here and more about the event with Palaver Strings here.
