Dirigo Dug Sees His Shadow

In the Main Entrance of the Dirigo Pines Inn surrounded by the Dirigo Inner Circle, our very own groundhog, Dirigo Dug, came out of his hole and saw his shadow.  That means we are in for another six weeks of winter, and living in Maine we think that's just great.  WABI-TV covered the event.

Things to Ponder for 2016

We are a group of people aged 80 years and beyond. We realize there is a time to live and a time to die.  We know that when it comes to death, we must always be ready and have our boots on. We know growing old always beats dying young. We get up, dress up, and show up out of habit no matter how we feel. We know life is too short to spend time hating anyone. It's always alright to agree to disagree. We have learned to get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful. We don't give advice. Wise men don't need it and fools won't heed it. We think back on happy times and enjoy our life a second time around. When we get to thinking of ourselves as a person to influence, we should try ordering some else's dog around. To sum up: We live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly and leave the rest to God.         Louise

Walk to End Alzheimer's

Thanks to volunteers and staff, Team Dirigo Pines was the top fundraiser for the 2015 Walk to End Alzheimer's. Besides our walking team members, Dirigo Pines hosted a water booth by the Bangor Fire Station that was a big hit because hot chocolate was also on the menu on that cool but refreshing morning. Congratulations and thanks to all our donors and supporters for making us Number 1.
