BAR HARBOR, ME — Thank you to everyone who helped, the in-kind and corporate sponsors; the volunteers and all the tennis players. The 15th Annual Open Tennis Tournament raised close to $18,000 for the EdGE program.

Congratulations to Tournament champion R.H. Foster team.

After being rained out on the appointed day, the Tournament kicked off on Sunday for some amazing displays of skill, fun, and friendly competition. Sunday was perfect for tennis. Not too hot or windy, and lots of sunshine.

Saturday’s rain prevented the EdGE kids from joining us. However, they had a wonderful time at their Friday event at the Bar Harbor Club, with tennis lessons from Liz McMullan, Dan Granholm and Colleen Maynard. Following their tennis lessons the EdGE kids got to swim in the Club pool. They spent the night at the Bar Harbor Congregational Church and went home on Saturday.
