Bar Harbor, ME – Crew members of the Mission’s Sunbeam V are returning to the Maine Fishermens Forum Trade Show at the Samoset Resort, Rockland, Maine, on Friday, March 3rd and Saturday, March 4th. 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

“We wanted to go back,” said Director of Island Services Douglas Cornman. “Last year was our first year” at the Forum Trade Show. “We connected with fishermen and fishermen’s families who had relationships with the Sunbeam — whether it was Sunbeam V or Sunbeam IV, and in some cases, even Sunbeam III — and it was fantastic to reconnect with these families, whether they were on islands we don’t visit regularly, or in coastal towns and villages,” said Director Douglas Cornman.

“It was a great opportunity to build awareness and educate people on what the boat’s currently doing. How we’re using telemedicine, telehealth, and island outreach.”

The Sunbeam V crew will have a booth at the Trade Show. “Our display this year will be our current literature on the Seacoast Mission, on what’s happening at the Mission’s Downeast Campus in Cherryfield, and what’s happening on the outer islands,” said Douglas.

“We are going to have the laptop with the videos. Sunbeam V Captain Mike Johnson has also put together a slide show of past images of Sunbeams, the current Sunbeam. Each day — Friday and Saturday — we’ll have boat crew and boat staff available. So people can ask questions about the Sunbeam itself, or questions about the programs offered from the boat. There’ll be a boat person and a program person at our table each day,” said Douglas Cornman
