Bright yellow rubber duckies can be sponsored for just $10 each at Bob's Kozy Korner Store, starting in June. The little critters race in the Sedgeunkedunk Stream from the dam to the Johnson Mill Road tunnel to the finish line. Fans can stay for burgers and hotdogs cooked on the Kozy Korner's grill!

Photography Contest


Celebrates Orrington's History

& Modern Day Beauty


To celebrate the Old Home Week, the Orrington Public Libray is holding a very special Photography Contest. Original photos can be of any subject matter: historical, landscapes, seasons, wildlife, people, structures, etc. as long as the photo is taken in and of ORRINGTON, MAINE. Judges will look at composition, color, and representation of theme.


New this year, we are also open to two of the same photo side by side comparison– example: using an old photo and recreating it for today just remember it must be taken in Orrington.


The contest is open to all ages, all skill levels. Entries are limited to 3 per person. The best 13 photos will be published in a commemorative, collectible 2020 calendar. These calendars will be available for pre-order during Old Home Week, July 13-19, 2019 and will be for sale at the Orrington Public Library in October.


All entries must have a title. All prints must be 8” x 10” and be matted (1.5”-3” width) with a backing. An entry form must be affixed to the center back of each entry and be accompanied by a duplicate entry form. Forms are available at the Town Hall and the Orrington Public Library.


All entries will be accepted at the Orrington Public Library from June 17- July 9, during regular business hours. All entries must be received by July 9. The Old Home Week Committee and library assume no risk. The official judging will take place on Thursday, July 11. Winners will be contacted by telephone.
