Best of the Bash

On Thursday, July 12, over 300 guests gathered at Abel's Yacht Yard on Somes Sound for the 3rd Annual Bash at the Boatyard. While the event serves as a fundraiser for The Neighborhood House, it also provides an opportunity to gather and celebrate our community in a fun and laid-back atmosphere.

For the third straight year, the party was held on the shore of Somes Sound with idyllic views of the water and western mountains. Mother Nature cooperated as well, providing a perfect summer evening.
