Graduation Day
Congratulations to all grads!

WHPW worked with the Harpswell Coastal Academy to broadcast their 2020 graduation ceremony at Harpswell Coastal Academy. The ceremony was held at the Division 2/3 Campus on Friday, June 5, 2020.

It was a closed graduation, open only to Seniors and their invited guests due to Covid-19. Family and friends were able to join HCA graduates to celebrate by tuning in to WHPW, 97.3FM.

Thanks to board member Daniel Moore and engineer Howard Yanik for putting together all the necessary connectivity to make this broadcast possible. Thanks also to staff member Kaitlyn Pulju at HCA for working with the WHPW crew.

Kellogg church 1933

Not the First Time!

On August 27, 1933, "Kellogg Day" was celebrated at the church. Services were held outside around the Kellogg monument, which had been erected in 1906. The speaker, Henry Merrill, was based in Portland, and was obviously popular: automobiles not only lined the town common on both sides of the road, but also filled a field belonging to the parsonage, seen at the rear.

Neighbors Got to Worship "Together" 

June, 2020 - For three Sundays in May WHPW broadcast "socially-distanced" church services on 97.3 FM. The services were
a partnership between the Elijah Kellogg Congregational Church & West Harpswell Baptist Church. 

The parking lot at the Kellogg church was set up for social distancing between cars and attendees were able to hear the sermons through their car radios on WHPW if they were not able to hear the live service from their car radios. Folks could also listen to the service from their own homes by tuning their radios to WHPW 97.3.

Thanks to board member Daniel Moore and engineer Howard Yanik for putting together all the necessary connectivity to make this broadcast possible.

Louise Huntington Memorial Service Broadcast to Friends & Family

On August 18, 2020, Rev. John Carson led a memorial service for long-time resident Louise Huntington. Louise lived in Harpswell from 1956 (the year she married Chuck Huntington) until 2018 when she moved to Bowdoinham. She died on March 6, 2020. Louise was a devoted member of the Kellogg Church and the Harpswell community. 

Friends and family were able to listen to the service by tuning into WHPW. Being able to broadcast local events is an important part of local public-access radio and Harpswell Community Radio was pleased to be able to assist the family of Louise in making this service available to all who wanted to listen.
