Community Cookout Set for May 28


The annual Community Cookout will return on Memorial Day, May 28. 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!

NOTE (5/25/18): If you've driven by the harbor recently, you might have noticed some construction going on for the Farmer's Market and Food Truck portions of the green. No worries- the ceremonies from American Legion Post 103 and our Community Cookout will go on as planned.



Take Part in the Parade

Children are invited to join The Neighborhood House as we march in the Memorial Day Parade. We can always use extra hands to pass out balloons and American flags! Kids can walk with us or ride a bicycle if they'd prefer. Younger children should bring along an adult.

Our parade contingent will gather outside Mt. Desert Elementary School at 10:00am. The parade starts at 10:30 and will head down Joy Rd. and Summit Rd. to Main St., along Main St., and then to the Harbor.
