The winner of the Marianne Edwards Distinguished Service Award will be announced. The Marianne Edwards Award for outstanding accomplishments in helping Friends of Acadia and the park execute their respective missions is Friends of Acadia’s highest honor and is named for our founder and the award’s first recipient.

Other highlights of this year’s meeting include comments by Senator Angus King and an exciting announcement about Acadia National Park by Superintendent Kevin Schneider. A copy of the 2019 Annual Report is now available on our website.

In honor of Acadia Week and the anniversary of the park’s founding, FOA Board member Julie Banzhaf-Stone and husband Steve Stone have committed to a 1:1 match on all donations next week until we reach our goal of $20,000. Check your inbox Monday for a link to give!

In addition to the Annual Meeting, we hope you will join us as we celebrate “Acadia Week” all next week with special lunchtime broadcasts every day at noon from the Bar Harbor Inn. Each broadcast will feature a different guest who has made an impact on Acadia National Park. Tune in to our Facebook page to watch.
