I hope you've been enjoying the last few beautiful days! The leaves are lovely on my early morning walks. I understand they are 75% peak up north! I am imagining them gorgeous!

Wonderful weather outside and busyness inside as we furiously prepare for the statewide biennial arts education conference Arts Education: Leading the Way being held at UMaine, Collins Center for the Arts, Thursday, October 24, $80.00. (PLEASE NOTE: purchase orders are not being accepted this year.) In fact, to provide you with as much information on the conference as possible this weeks blog posts will be on the conference starting with today's. Registration information is at http://mainearts.maine.gov/Pages/Media-and Performing/Conference-Education#<http://mainearts.maine.gov/Pages/Media-and-Performing/Conference-Education#>.
