CHERRYFIELD, ME — Earlier this year, Lee Watrous and his volunteers almost single-highhandedly completed the final phase wing of the new Weald Bethel Community Center.
Mission Downeast Campus Facilities and Housing Rehabilitation Manager Scott Shaw worked closely with Mr. Watrous. So, Scott Shaw was surprised a few days ago when Mr. Watrous and his wife visited the Community Center unannounced and not “full of drywall and sawdust,” Scott said.
Here’s the rest of Scott’s message and photo
“Lee Watrous and his wife Gail came to visit and stayed at a local airBnB over the weekend. They also attended a Cherryfield Academy concert and went hiking.
“I told Lee I didn’t recognize him. He wasn’t full of drywall and sawdust! He cleaned up pretty good! I told him I wanted to post a good photo of them on Facebook while he was clean!”

CHERRYFIELD, ME — Fulfilling a ten-year dream, Maine Seacoast Mission opened its Weald Bethel Community Center with a celebration of friends, volunteers, builders, farmers, and Mission personnel on June 1. The completed Weald Bethel Community Center includes a commercial kitchen, dorm rooms, full bathroom and showers, washer/dryer, and more indoor open areas to accommodate the Mission’s community meals, coffees, and Housing Rehabilitation program volunteers.
Mission President Scott Planting and Mission Downeast Campus Director Wendy Harrington spoke briefly to the gathering of well-wishers.
“When I first started in 2010 there was talk about building a dormitory onto this building,” said President Planting. A “generous gift” enabled building plans to start in 2012.
Planting said, “Wendy, I especially want to thank you for your leadership, and your vision, and guiding this project to its completion. It’s my hope that this will be a center where people come together around their love of the place. I believe we cannot live a grounded life without being in a grounded place,” he said.
Wendy Harrington opened her remarks with, “I’m just in awe of this day that we’ve put together. This is a community resource that has been built by the Maine Seacoast Mission community, the Downeast community, our friends, our neighbors, our colleagues.”
The Downeast Campus director thanked a list of individuals and groups who helped make the Weald Bethel a reality.
“This is what we hope this community center becomes. A place where everyone is welcome,” Harrington said. A place where everyone belongs, can be themselves, have a wonderful meal, share laughter, fun, and some tears.”
