Many of our customers frequently ask from what part of Maine are we from and I tell them "as the crow flies we are not too distant from Martha Stewart's lovely summer home on Mt. Desert Island".
We are closer still to the College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, where the late Paul Newman's daughter, Nel was once a student. NEWMAN'S OWN -- What a wonderful contribution they have made in reaching out and helping others. An inspirational company!
Thank you and Bravo to ..

|walking a marathon with my friends|
Tonight I finished my training ride through Acadia a little late because Bailey had a soccer game. I had a great time as the air smelled of dry pine and the sun cast on Aunt Betty's Pond looked like shades of mercury. The route carried me past ferns and graded hillsides, fields and mountains, and I finally emerged on Gatehouse Hill to see the harbor bathed in pink light, all boats tied to their moorings and I pedaled harder. I have decided to walk in the MDI Marathon in my 55th year ! I get to celebrate my health and ability, get to raise money for a local charity and spend time with a lot of fun people who are doing the same. In order to enter the race I had to pledge $1,000.00, and have chosen to make the donation to the MDI Music Boosters, a worthy, hard-working group who earn money to make programing and opportunities available to our students at MDI High SchooI.
I am really thrilled to have a connection to the high school and support the school in this way. As I got closer to home, I wondered if dinner was saved for me and I sent out another hopeful wish as well, that I would acquire enough support to be able to finance this walk. All donations will be gratefully accepted, no matter the amount. I would also be delighted to simply have a note of encouragement. My sincere thanks and appreciation for your consideration of my request.
As Always, Holly

"Maine is the only place on the continent where one can ski Sugarloaf in the morning, play an early round of golf in the day, then fish for landlocked salmon in the afternoon, and end your day fishing for Atlantic Salmon on the Maine Coast."
