All those miles of running on the main streets and back roads of Ogunquit over the summer paid off for Alanna McDonough and Matt Dynan as they represented Littlefield's Village well at the NCAA D3 New England Cross Country Championship held in Waterford, Connecticut, on November 14, 2015. Alanna qualified for the NCAA D3 National Championship for the third year in a row by completing the women's 6k course in an amazing 22:04. Matt ran very well in his first NCAA regional event, completing the men's 8k course in 26:25. Just weeks later, Alanna went on to run at the NCAA National Meet in Winneconne, Wisconsin, where she placed 80th. Congrats to both Matt and Alanna on successful cross country seasons!

OgunquitFest was held this past weekend, which meant that voting closed for the "Scarecrow" Contest. At this point, I'm pretty sure it is a competition for second. Congrats to John, Charlie, Mike, Paul, Bob and the rest of the crew for putting together another amazing display. For the past few weeks, they've been making traffic even worse than it already was.
In case you missed all of the excitement last week...
2015's wonderful Halloween display is causing quite the controversy in Ogunquit and throughout the state of Maine. The display was featured on Maine's WMTW Channel 8 News (ABC) and shared around the world on social media. The e-mail account linked up to this very website may have even received a bit of...well, hate mail. Controversy!
Please visit the link for the news article and video from WMTW Channel 8.
This past week, Matt was selected as New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Runner of the Week AND ECAC Cross-Country Rookie of the Week. Matt became Babson College's 8th best all time for 8K with his performance at Umass-Dartmouth Invitational. Check out the story on the Babson Beavers website by clicking the link below!
Congratulations to Matt Dynan: Babson College Cross-Country StandoutThere must be something in the water, because Littlefield's is full of collegiate athletes right now. Matt Dynan is a freshman at Babson. During the summer, he's riding waves, running lots of miles, and serving lobster rolls at Oarweed.
Variety Show Thanks! First, and foremost, a big thank you to those involved in last night's Variety Show. Estelle Farnsworth deserves a big congratulations for another well-run and well-attended event. Thanks to John Hurley, Bob Kennedy and their crew for literally setting the stage. The performances were entertaining to say the least!
Recipe Swap Update - CANCELLED - The organizers of August 15th's Recipe Swap Night have decided to cancel the event, citing a lack of interest. Our apologies to those who have been cooking up a storm.
Stickers - The Keough Family took the initiative to design a Littlefield's Village "LFV" decal. They're approximately 4 1/2" by 2 1/2" and would stick nicely to your car, boat, or cooler. Stickers will be available for $2 at village events, and maybe even at The Hall Candy Store.

When Mrs. Dynan saw the Hall's floor this afternoon, she exclaimed, "Wow! Look at this. We need to have a big dance tomorrow night!"
Just a few days away from our first meeting of the year, a team of campers tackled the first of our 2015 hall renovation projects. We sanded, cleaned and finished the Hall's floor. The floor itself is a combination of fir and pine, and much like many of the cottages in Littlefield's, the Hall was built up and added onto over the years. The three different sections of the building are easily identified by the variations in the floor. Many have shared their stories of the Hall's early days. Larry R. explained that the candy store end of the hall was a men's bathroom for many years. Who knew!?
Paul Dever, John Scanlon, and Charlie Gifford deserve a huge thank you for their hard work. Additionally, we were lucky to have a young crew of campers work extra hard throughout the day. Bernie, Kaitlin, Jake, Harry, Matt B, Matt D and Hannah spent the morning cleaning, sanding, or scraping paint. It is great to see this young group step up and take on a project. Please thank them if you get a chance!
Check out some of the pictures I snapped in the moments that I needed a break from pushing a sander around.
See you at the meeting!
