Community Events

Making a Difference for Seniors—For the past 109 years the Maine Sea Coast Mission has served the communities of Maine’s coast and remote islands. On March 25, the Mission will convene a meeting of local organizations, service providers and community members. The Mission is interested in establishing a coffee house for senior citizens at the Colket Center. This meeting will provide an opportunity for your feedback and to help determine potential areas of collaboration. The planned coffee house would be similar to a successful program the Mission currently offers at our campus in Cherryfield.  A potential component of the program would be a volunteer-run telephone program designed to support and reassure homebound seniors.  We know that many excellent programs serving seniors already exist on MDI, and we want to complement and work within the existing service network. The meeting will be held at the Mission’s Colket Center located at 127 West Street in Bar Harbor on March 25th from 2-4 pm. Light refreshments will be provided. Space is limited so please RSVP to Terri Rodick at 207-288-5097 or if you plan to attend.


Best Ever Spaghetti Supper – Come on out for the 11th Annual Best Ever Spaghetti Supper on Saturday, April 12th from 5-7pm. This dinner is a benefit for the Westside Food Pantry and is hosted by the Southwest Harbor Congregational Church located on High Road.  Cost is $7.00 per person or $25.00 per family.


Stabat Mater: You are cordially invited to a performance of Giovanni Battista Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater on Sunday, April 13th at 5:30 p.m. at St. Saviour’s; Johanna-Karen Johannson, soprano; Rebecca Hope Woods, mezzo-soprano; Julia Morris-Myers, piano. Suggested donation is $15. Profits will benefit the MDI Community Campfire Coalition, which provides heating fuel to locals in need. FMI:  


Island Connections needs volunteers! Island Connections seeks to provide free services to seniors, elderly and people with disabilities on Mount Desert Island and the surrounding islands that will enable them to live independently and with a strong quality of life.
