CHERRYFIELD, ME — Thank you, Stephanie Moores, for these Halloween prep photos of EdGE students at D.W. Merritt Elementary in Addison, ME painting pumpkins and engineering bone bridges. Perhaps the EdGE student who made the card shown here for EdGE staff captured the essence of how EdGE impacts everyone who takes part in the program.
It’s Thank you Thursday. Today’s shout out of Mission love goes to the sponsors and organizers of our 17th EdGE Tennis Tournament.
The EdGE Tennis Tournament, held Saturday, October 2 at the Causeway Club in Southwest Harbor, raised funds for Ed Greaves Education (EdGE), the Mission’s youth development program. Local businesses sponsor four-person teams for morning and afternoon matches of exciting, competitive tennis. Mission President John Zavodny said, “EdGE kids are better off because of your work and support.”
Thank you for visiting our complete list of sponsors and organizers who made the tournament possible and fun.
This is what community looks like.
NORTHEAST HARBOR, ME – Year after year you make this tournament possible. As always, because of you, the tournament is a fun, competitive, and spirited fundraiser for the EdGE Program!
With your generous assistance, we are able to continue providing educational opportunities for young people in our Downeast communities.

NORTHEAST HARBOR, ME – The Mission’s first Davis Maine Scholar cohort just returned from a 660 mile, four-day road-trip to visit Wheaton College, Clark University, and University of New England in Massachusetts and Southern Maine. The cohort’s six scholars traveled with two mentors: Davis Maine Scholarship Director Christina Griffith, and Journey Program Director Dakin Hewlett.
Scholars enjoyed campus tours and information sessions, and time with admissions counselors learning about the application process. At lunch, college students shared stories of their studies and life on campus. Our cohort learned about support resources (i.e. academic tutoring, advising) and enjoyed conversation (and even a pizza dinner) with each college president.
From the peace of Peacock Pond on the Wheaton campus, to Clark’s extensive community service engagement in local neighborhoods, to UNE’s research and study abroad opportunities, our Scholars learned much and returned inspired. They represented well their families, schools, and Downeast communities.
In the weeks ahead, Scholars will focus on completing their college applications with new focus and insight given their own lived experiences on each campus.

NORTHEAST HARBOR, ME – The Mission’s 17th Annual Tennis Tournament to benefit EdGE is Saturday, Sept. 25, at The Causeway Club, Southwest Harbor, ME. Money raised thanks to this event’s sponsors and participants helps fund the Mission’s innovative EdGE after-school, summer, and in-school programs for hundreds of children along the Downeast coast.
EdGE is designed to teach students to make smart, informed choices about their futures and develop the resources and skills to be successful and happy in life. EdGE students challenge themselves, engage with their communities and outdoors, and gain leadership skills.
We strongly believe cost should not be a barrier to participating in summer camps, after-school programs, and leadership workshops. All EdGE programs are free or low-cost, including free transportation and meals.
Learn more about our 17th Annual Tennis Tournament. Rain date is Sunday, Sept. 26.
