Location: "Harlow on the Circle" lobby gallery at 45 Memorial Circle in Augusta. Hours: 9 am to 9 pm daily (Can be viewed from the street and is lit at night) Cost: free and open to the public. The Kennebec Valley Art Association is pleased to present "New England Moments", a mini art exhibition featuring paintings by Christine Sullivan of Gardiner, located in the former ATM space at 45 Memorial Circle in Augusta. On view May 12 through June 27, 2014 the installation is open 9am-9pm daily, can be viewed from outside the building, and is lit at night. Christine Sullivan is a painter in contemporary realism and impressionism. She has experimented with oils and watercolors but has concentrated on acrylics which seem to suit her style well, especially the vibrant colors that can be attained with acrylics. Even though her paintings are traditional they reflect her background and interest in graphics, whether a simple still life or an elaborate landscape. She is a graduate of Kendall College of Art and Design in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The artist currently lives in Gardiner, Maine.

DOL 's SafetyWork! Laws Governing Workplace Rights
( 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. )
AUGUSTA The Maine Department of Labor will offer sessions of its popular no-charge course that educates employers and the public about regulations governing the workplace. The Laws Governing Workplace Rights classes are taught by staff of the Wage and Hour Division of the Bureau of Labor Standards. The BRUNSWICK course will be held JUNE 19 at the SOUTHERN MIDCOAST CAREERCENTER, 275 Bath Road in Brunswick. The BANGOR course will be held June 26 at the BANGOR CAREERCENTER, 45 Oak Street in Bangor. Although courses can be attended at no charge, registration is required because seating is limited. We are pleased to be offering these popular courses at no charge to employers all over the state to make it more convenient for small business owners and HR staff to attend, said Governor Paul R. LePage. Understanding the law prevents businesses from making costly mistakes. This course helps Maine s business managers save time, money and aggravation when complying with state regulations. This course covers wage and hour laws, including minimum wage, overtime, youth employment, severance pay, equal pay, leave requirements (family medical leave and domestic violence) and break requirements. It addresses commonly asked employment-related questions and offers participants an opportunity to ask questions. The course also includes a discussion of employer services offered by the CareerCenters. Commissioner of Labor Jeanne Paquette said, The department wants to help Maine employers by giving them the answers before we give them the test. This course is designed for small business owners or staff who handle human resources and payroll functions. This is about education, not investigation. Come with your questions. To register, call the Maine Department of Labor at (207) 623-7900 or visit http://www.maine.gov/tools/whatsnew/index.php?topic=Safetyworks_Classes&v=ListAll. Space is limited so reservations are required. The Wage and Hour Division is Maine s regulatory agency overseeing labor and employment law; it provides both consultation and enforcement services. The division promotes and achieves compliance with labor standards to protect and enhance the welfare of Maine s workforce.

Spectrum Generations - Free Benefits Check-up
( 10:00am to 3:00pm. )
Could you be saving money? Free Benefits Check-up June 19th at the Vassalboro Town Office. Spectrum Generations, central Maine s Area Agency on Aging and Aging and Disability Resource Center, is hosting a free Benefits Check-up at the local town office of Vassalboro June 19th from 10AM- 3PM. Spectrum Generations Benefits Specialists will be on hand to discuss various programs and services that could help residents of Kennebec County to save money in these difficult economic times. Stop by our table to see if you qualify for the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program, the Medicare Savings Program, MaineCare, Supplemental Security Income, and the Home Energy Assistance Program. Did you know many Medicare beneficiaries who qualify for the Medicare Savings Program (also known as the Medicare Buy-in), are not receiving it? This could amount to a savings of hundreds of dollars. The Medicare Savings Program is available to those who receive Medicare and have a monthly income at or below $1,777 (and less than $50,000 liquid assets) for a single person household, or $2,394 (and less than $75,000 liquid assets) for a two person household. The income limit may even be higher if some of the income is from a job. This is only one of the many benefits to be reviewed with our Benefits Specialists. If you would like to find out if you qualify for any of these benefits, please just stop in to see us at the town office located at 682 Main Street in Vassalboro. At Spectrum Generations, we are proud to be a leader in advocating for the rights and services that benefit older adults, their caregivers and adults with disabilities. We look forward to meeting with you. For more information about Spectrum Generations visit us www.spectrumgenerations.org and like us on Facebook.
