Finishing Touches Put on Revamped Parady Room
On May 27 (Memorial Day), The Neighborhood House welcomed about 400 guests who had gathered from across MDI for the annual Community Cookout. Numerous members of the Board of Directors turned out to lend a hand throughout the day, helping with everything from seeing up underneath the tent to taking orders and flipping burgers.
Community Cookout Highlights Busy Memorial Day
Jack Ledbetter is perhaps known best for his beautiful photography. What you might not know about Jack, however, is that he also contributes his time and energy as a volunteer member of The Neighborhood House’s Board of Directors. Recently, Jack’s photography skills and support for The Neighborhood House were both “put on display,”
An Abundance of Springtime Projects In the Works
The annual Community Cookout will return on Memorial Day, May 27. This year's event is once again generously supported by four fantastic sponsors: Main Street Variety, Northeast Plumbing & Heating, S.R. Tracy Paint Shop, and Thomas W. Wallace Construction. Thanks so much for making this community tradition possible!
Cafe Conclusion Set for April 18
Spring is finally here, and with buds getting set to burst and grass turning green, there’s also an abundance of projects happening throughout our community. At The Neighborhood House, the story is no different. So, while we wait for the bushes out front to bloom any day now, we also have several projects underway we’d like to tell you about…
Cafe and a Concert
Spring is here, and that means it’s time for the Community Cafe to take a break before returning for another season in the fall. The 2018/19 Cafe season was a record-setting endeavor with turnouts often in excess of 120 guests. If you’ve yet to discover why the Cafe has become such a popular program, or if you simply want to grab one more bite before the summer season, be sure to join us this Thursday, April 18 from 11:30-1:00.
April Showers Bring... Yoga Classes
A large crowd arrived to break bread, and some musicians arrived and broke a leg. That was the scene Thursday, April 4th at The Neighborhood House when Mt. Desert 365 hosted the Community Cafe and the Mt. Desert Elementary Music Dept. arrived to put on a show.
Dishing Up Lunch & Some Community Spirit
Before we hit the busy summer season, April provides a great opportunity to treat yourself to a relaxing and energizing experience with Yoga offerings at The Neighborhood House.
Every Thursday morning, instructor Karen Roper welcomes students to “Yoga for Everybody,” an all levels class focused on breath and relaxed energy. Classes use props such as straps and bolsters to keep poses accessible for every shape and size. The fee is on a donation basis, with the suggestion being between $5 and $12.
Summer Sign-Up Underway
Mount Desert 365 is focused on building “community year ‘round,” which is why we’re thrilled to have them be part of one of those important year ‘round activities in Mt. Desert—the Community Café!
Coastal Computers Cafe Set for March 21
Summer is just around the corner and that means it’s time to make plans to keep your children busy during their school vacation. The Neighborhood House will be offering eight weeks of activities and adventures for kids in pre-school through middle-school, every Monday through Friday from 9am to 4pm.
Passive Stretch & Divine Play Yoga Return for March
Coastal Computers may be known as your local “technology solution provider,” but perhaps they should add “lunch” to that tagline as well. Be sure to join George, Kristina, and the whole gang from Coastal Computers this Thursday, March 21 as they’ll be taking over the Community Cafe.
Say goodbye to "Old Man Winter" and get set for spring with these March yoga offerings from Mike Bouscaren! On Monday, March 18 from 4:00-5:00pm Mike will lead a session of Passive Yoga Stretch, and the next morning on March 19 at 8:30 everyone is invited back for Divine Play Yoga.
