On Thursday, April 3rd, 2008 Dexter Regional High School will hold its “First Annual Science Fair” from 4:00 PM to 9:00 PM featuring approximately 165 students between the grades of nine through twelve competing in two project categories. The categories include a “paper research project”, which will cover a topic of the student's interest and will contain a six to eight page written report, explaining their findings. The second category is an “Experimental Project.” Students in this division design and execute their own experiments following the scientific method of inquiry. Students are expected to follow extensive guidelines and will present to a panel of judges who are currently practicing in their science professions. Students must make it through the first round of judges before moving on to the second round of judges. There will be awards given out to the first four places in each category, and an “Honorable Mention” category. Each year, the names of winning recipients will be engraved on a special plaque which has been purchased, and will be proudly displayed outside the science rooms. The entire second floor of Dexter Regional High School will be utilized in order to display the projects, and the ATM room will have the Forensics Research & Design class which will be giving symposiums throughout the evening. This event is open to the public, and will also feature a “Kids Corner” where younger children will have the opportunity to win door prizes by performing special science related activities.
Refreshments will also be available to purchase throughout the event, which will benefit fundraising activities for the school.

For the 2008 season we have set our show dates which are:
At the July show NCRC will host three classes for members of the Maine Appaloosa Horse Club that will be pointed towards MAHC year end awards. The August show will be an All Trophy Show during Dexter's 6th Annual Wild West Weekend. These shows are held at the Bud Ellms Field in Dexter
As a club we made the decision at our January meeting to omit a game show this season. In place of this we have decided to host our first annual Family Fun Day for members, date TBA. This day will include an organized trail ride in the morning with a BBQ lunch followed by arena activities for the kids in the afternoon.
A new addition to our calendar of events NCRC will be hosting a Carriage Day on June 21st with judge Judith Bean-Calhoun. In the spirit of combining the local horse communities (and having more room for carriages) this show will be held at the Piscataquis Valley Fairgrounds in Dover-Foxcroft. We are currently looking for sponsors to help us make this show a success. If you are interested in sponsoring a driving class contact Angie Coy.
