The Kennebunk ReStore Needs Volunteers
Get your Community Service hours doing something fun while helping your community! Grab a friend and help out! The Kennebunk ReStore sells gently used furniture, appliances, lighting, hardware, construction materials and more. All proceeds from the ReStore support Habitat for Humanity York County's affordable mission. A good deal for you, our community and the environment. The Store has opportunities Wednesday – Saturday from 9:00-12:00 and 12:00-4:00, and 4:00-6:00 on Thursday evenings. They have a wide range of opportunities that do not all involve moving furniture. Volunteers can be trained to cashier, assist customers, help organize the sales floor, receive donations etc. The Store has enough going on that typically they are able to find something that matches the interest of the volunteer. As long as you sign up in advance students are welcome to volunteer on a consistent basis, complete their hours quickly and then stop or come when it fits their schedule. They have had some volunteers only come on school break and that works for them as well. Students can either email Alana to sign up (email@example.com) or sign up online at www.habitatyorkcounty.org/volunteer.
Student vehicles must be registered with Officer Champlin. If your student has not registered their vehicle and been given a parking pass please click HERE. Please make sure to read the information associated with the application.

Combat Photojournalist to Speak at Brick Store Museum on Oct. 15
The Association of Former Intelligence Officers'(AFIO) October meeting will feature Jonathan Alpeyrie, a combat photojournalist, who was born and raised in France and has covered 14 wars so far. Mr. Alpeyrie was kidnapped by Syrian rebels in 2013 and wounded in 2015 in the Ukraine by artillery fired by pro-Russian rebels. He had an interesting capture and release by the Syrians, and he has valuable insights about the Ukraine from his coverage of various phases of the Ukraine wars including how the present conflict escalated from past encounters. Although not a trained intelligence officer, Mr. Alpeyrie has keen insight into many societies that have been torn apart by war and through his camera lens he has been able to study not only the surface causes of war but the impact on the local populace. He has humanized the effects of war on local people to go along with his perspective of societal causes and effects of regional conflicts, often driven by clan or economic territorial conflicts such as drug wars, that resulted in his book The Shattered Lens. The AFIO meeting is open to the public and will begin at 2 p.m. at the Program Center of the Brick Store Museum, 4 Dane Street, Kennebunk, Maine 04043. A question-and-answer period will follow the presentation.
