Keeping the pennyfarthing, adding the bird and some flowers. New tag line "art : gardens : tea" is a throwback to the orginal plans for the Sugar Tree Cottage here on Olive Street, and elements that we hope will continue to be found at every cabin in our project.

In the snow, in the quiet, the community bridge between Olive Street and the Lakewood Theater parking lot waits for heavier traffic.

Local folks occasionaly cross on thier winter walks, and to go ice fishing, but for the most part few go by this time of year.

Last summer it was beautiful to see her rail lit by a string of tiny lights each evening and I'm looking forward to doing that again.

Arts Access Sponsor

On Olive Street is so very pround to be an Arts Access sponsor to an upcoming show at the Skowhegan Opera House!

On Sunday February 26th at 4pm, the SOH welcomes the one and only Scot Cannon, who will present "Be Positive Be Productive" a Mime & Music Workshop Show for Kids & Families

Tickets are $5 each or $20 per family, but through the Arts Access program a number of tickets are FREE to children! Email Lyn at or call/text 207-399-3181 for more information about this wonderful opportunity. 

I first met Scot a little over a decade ago when I was co-director of the Elementary Performing Arts Enrichment Program at RSU#3. His performance captivated the students! In years following that, he returned to Mount View to do interviews & recordings of various student projects for his WERU radio show, including school musicals, band performances, and the Mount View Chamber Singers. 

You may have heard my son and On Olive Street resident Jakob Sutton in his recurring radio role as the voice of Thor on the 'General Store Varity Hour with Annie & Andy' on HooSkow Radio WXNZ 98.1, but we like to say that Scot gave him his big radio break first!

This performance of Scot Cannon's show "Be Positive Be Productive" is presented by Friends of Skowhegan Opera House, and all proceeds will go to updating and renovating SOH.
