The Neighborhood House
The Neighborhood House has been many things to many people since its doors opened in 1905. In those hundred-plus years, the Town of Mount Desert has certainly gone through a plethora of change, as too has The Neighborhood House itself. One thing that has remained the same, however, is the mission of The Neighborhood House and the important role it plays within our community.
The vaudeville performances and bowling lanes from years past may have long since been superseded by community celebrations, yoga classes, and the like; but the spirit with which it was founded remains the same. In fact, today, The Neighborhood House offers more programs and events than it has at any other point in its long history.
15th Annual Bike Parade & Ice Cream Social: Wed., August 5th
The fun gets underway at 5:30, when when we gather on the lawn to deck out our bikes, tricycles, scooters, and wagons, and will be followed by the parade (down Tracy Road and back up Main Street) around 6:00. We'll wrap it up with a FREE ice cram social, complete with homemade hot fudge.
