BAR HARBOR, ME — We wanted to have another Christmas Open House this year even though La Rochelle has a new owner. We planned the party with the Bar Harbor Historical Society and we are co-hosting with them.
The Bar Harbor Historical society is displaying a gingerbread house tonight. We are raffling off the wreaths and Lori Bartlett’s cake.
Bob Bahr is playing the piano. Jen Worcester provided the food. Thanks to the several volunteers helping prepare for the Open House. And thank you to this list of people who donated wreaths:
- Chad Kessel
- Kimball Shop
- Terri Rodick
- Queen Anne’s Flower Shop
- Leslie Edwards
- Jenny Jones Denegre
- Mary Ann Atkins Smallidge
- Linda Rowell-Kelley
Proceeds will go to both the Mission and BHHS.
See the official Christmas Open House Event page.
Thank you to everyone who took part in the Mission’s Christmas Open House and Silent Auction. At least 350 guests visited the Colket Center during the event — an increase from last year.
