The Bar Harbor Club
111 West Street
Friends of Acadia invites members and the public to our Annual Meeting. Please join us on the 100th birthday of Acadia National Park, to inspire the second century of conservation at Acadia with a very special announcement.
Held each summer at the Bar Harbor Club on West Street in Bar Harbor, this fun and informative event is your opportunity to meet FOA staff and board members, hear about recent accomplishments and initiatives, then enjoy a reception on the terrace overlooking the harbor.
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.
Books will be for sale! This year, Friends of Acadia is connected to the publication of three exciting books celebrating Acadia and its centennial: Acadia National Park: A Centennial Celebration by Tom Blagden; Creating Acadia National Park: The Biography of George Bucknam Dorr by Ron Epp; and The Wild Gardens of Acadia by Anne Kozak and Sue Leiter. Copies will be for sale during the reception portion of the Annual Meeting, and all four authors will be on hand to sign copies during the first half-hour of the reception.
Seating is limited; RSVP by July 3 to firstname.lastname@example.org or 207-288-3340.
