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The vaudeville performances and bowling lanes from years past may have long since been superseded by community celebrations, yoga classes, and the like; but the spirit with which it was founded remains the same.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.
SWEETHEART VALENTINE DANCE
Girls are invited to grab their dancing shoes, along with dad, grandad, or any other "father figure" in their life, and join us on Friday, Feb. 10 for our annual Sweetheart Valentine Dance.
The evening will include music, dancing, hors d'oeuvres, lots of sweets, party favors, and fun! Festivities get underway at 6pm. Tickets are $20 per "couple," and just $10 for extra guests. Payments can be made at the door, but space is limited, so please give us a call to RSVP or for any questions at 276-5039 or via email.
