Maine Coast Heritage Trust’s Aldermere Farm, 20 Russell Avenue, Rockport, will offer its annual Beltie Holiday on Saturday, December 7, from 9 a.m. to noon. Attendees are encouraged to don their most festive (or ugliest) holiday sweaters and bring their cameras to have their holiday portraits taken with a Belted Galloway calf. There will be a book signing with author Paige Pendleton, featuring her children’s stories based on the Belted Galloways at Aldermere Farm. Children can enjoy complimentary hot cocoa and homemade treats from the Aldermere Achievers 4H Club bake sale while decorating their own Beltie ornaments. Aldermere Farm beef and Beltie-themed stocking stuffers will be for sale. Admission is free. There is a suggested donation of a nonperishable food item for the Camden Area Christian Food Pantry.
