Pie Sale Fundraiser Supports Community Projects


Michaeleen Ward and Jan McIntyre had fun selling pies at the Bar Harbor Rotary Club’s Fourth of July Celebration.

The Bar Harbor Garden Club is truly grateful to our MDI community for their support of the club’s Fourth of July Pie Sale held at the Bar Harbor Athletic Field. People told us that they look forward to eating our homemade pies every year.

Money from this fundraiser supports our student scholarships, and community projects like this year’s Student Conservation project in Acadia National Park. We’d like to acknowledge the donation of ice cream by the Acadia Corporation, and the loaning of tables by the Beatrix Farrand Society.
