Upcoming Events

We are working to reach out across the state of Maine.  There are two upcoming events and then more to come!

  1. Walk4Hearing on Oct 1, virtually or in-person near Boston, MA, with donations accepted until Oct 30.
  2. Nov 4 in-person near Portland, Maine.  Please email hearinglossmaine at gmail dot com to be put on the mailing list for this and future events.

Fyi: links on this page open new tabs, rather than in the same tab or a new window. Efforts are underway to make this more consistent on all of our chapter’s web pages in order to provide better accessibility for everyone.

New England Walk4Hearing on Oct 1, 2023, is part of a major event for HLAA. It can be done either virtually or in-person near Boston. Please help us reach all Mainers about hearing loss activities, education, and support.

Donations for team DownEast are accepted through Oct 30.

Margaret Myatt is our team captain for this event. Team DownEast’s page is more about joining us than donating.  A simpler way to contribute is at Tom’s donation page.

Location for the in-person Walk4Hearing:
Artesani Park, 1234 Soldiers Field Rd, Brighton, MA.

Schedule and distance:

  • 10:30 a.m. Registration starts
  • 11:30 a.m. Stage Presentation
  • 11:45 a.m. Walk starts 
(5K/3.1 miles)

Get your feet ready to have fun and support those with hearing loss! Share this flyer too.

Nov 4, 2023, there will be an in-person meeting in the Portland vicinity, with specific location and time tbd*.

Meet our cybersecurity pro and treasurer, Andy Chandler, other members of our chapter, as well as folks like you who wish to learn about our ongoing efforts to support those with hearing loss in Maine.

As always, our meetings and information are “For people with hearing loss and everyone they communicate with in Maine or beyond.” Please invite your friends and family to join us too!

Happy Autumn,
– Pat Dobbs, Margaret Myatt, Tom Watson III, and Andy Chandler.

* tbd = to be determined.
