Volunteers for building clean-out

What’s better than free food? Free food AND helping a worthy cause!

Garrison Players is hosting its biannual building clean-out on January 28, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Coffee and donuts will be provided for all volunteers in the morning, and pizza and non-alcoholic drinks will be provided for lunch. The work involves carrying unneeded items outside for eventual disposal, as well as a little light maintenance work—such as installing light bulbs! (No pun intended!)

The clean-out is always a fun time, and it’s a great opportunity to meet new people, learn about Garrison Players, get involved in theater, and help us prepare for upcoming shows by making room in the building for new props, costumes, and dressing areas.

Come join the fun, either for the whole time or even for just an hour or two!

It helps us plan if we know you’re coming but you’re also welcome to just swing by. To R.S.V.P., please contact Barb at

The Lions Club of Dover, Rollinsford and South Berwick dedicate Trex bench

The Lions Club of Dover, Rollinsford and South Berwick dedicate Trex bench to Dover400 For Immediate Release: The Dover, Rollinsford and South Berwick (DRSB) Lions Club has dedicated one of their TREX benches to the Dover400 Anniversary Committee. The bench is part of a very successful recycling effort; one of six that have been donated throughout local towns as part of the Trex “Nextrex” challenge. The benches are made from plastics collected and recycled by club members and transformed by Trex into lovely benches complete with bronze plaques. Each bench represents 500 pounds of plastics that would have otherwise ended up in our landfills. Dover400 President Kevin McEneaney and Vice President Sam Allen were present to accept the bench at the Lions regular Wednesday meeting on December 21,2022 at Cara Irish Pub. The bench was received just in time for their “First of the 400th” Gala at Dover City Hall on December 31, 2022. The bench will ultimately be placed on the lawn of the Dover Library, where summer programs for children are held, among other events. The Lions Club of Dover, Rollinsford and South Berwick is a member of the Lions Club International, which began in 1917. Their motto is “We Serve.” The club gathers monthly to find ways to improve their community. For more information about the Dover, Rollinsford, South Berwick Lions Club, visit
