With heavy hearts, the Hermon Arts community will be postponing tonight's Showcase program indefinitely to aid our district's effort in curbing the spread of illness. We are considering taking our lead from the Maine Music Educators Association and Penobscot Theatre Company and will evaluate whether or not to record our performances to share remotely with friends and family. If it is possible to perform these selections for a live audience at a later date, we will do so. Thank you for your continuing support, and we wish you safety and health this spring.

The Class of 2023 is looking for a volunteer to help with our Krispy Kreme Doughnut fundraiser from late March to early April. We are looking for a volunteer who is able to pick up boxes of doughnuts from Auburn and deliver to the school by 1:45 p.m. on a weekday. Ideally, the volunteer would have a large SUV or van as we are predicting an order of 200+ boxes of doughnuts. The date of delivery is flexible as we haven't started the fundraiser yet. All of the proceeds will benefit the senior year activities for the Class of 2023. Our goal is to raise $14,000 by the end of senior year. This fundraiser can generate up to $3,000!
