People Plus has announced the launch of its Annual Appeal fundraising campaign. During this year of COVID-19, People Plus has had to cancel all fundraising events; so it has set a goal of $65,000 for this year’s campaign. The 45 year old non-profit has two “matching donors” to help bring in funds.

People Plus was awarded the 2020 United Way of Mid Coast Maine’s Campaign Public Service Division Award at their 2020 Finale Meeting. Stacy Frizzle-Edgerton, People Plus Executive Director, accepted the award at the meeting via Zoom, in front of 30 People Plus members having a monthly lunch outside in the Center parking lot!

Former People Plus staffer Frank Connors, trying to come up with “his” way to celebrate the 200th birthday of the Great State of Maine, decided it would be fun and informative to create a list of the 200 places and things that make Maine so “special.” His list debuted in our March 2020 People Plus Newspaper with this article.

The People Plus VTN (Volunteer Transportation Network) has shifted focus to keep homebound seniors well supplied. Normally, our drivers are taking participants to doctor appointments, physical therapy, grocery stores, hair appointments and more. Now our volunteer drivers are grocery shopping and getting prescriptions for area residents and members alike!

Stacy and our instructors have filmed videos of your favorite classes from the Center. We have videos on Yoga, Tai Chi, Learn Tai Chi movements, Zumba, Qigong, Chair Yoga, Zumba, Loosen Up, Meditation and more. We hope our members will keep up their exercise routines and we hope seniors from all over (and non-seniors too) will try our classes and exercise from their homes.
