Thanks to Pamela and Sharon (shown here), for our interesting, informative tour of Skyline Farms new carriage display that includes carriages designed for women or men. Thanks to our members for joining us for the year-end get together!

Main Street Bridge Update

The information from the town states that the bridge is expected to be open by July 18, as the Clam Festival kicks off. All members of the public are invited to a Community Celebration August 11th from 4pm to 6pm to not just honor the physical structure, but all the consensus building, creativity, and strong partnerships that went into the project.

There will be ceremony, which will include a tribute to Paul D. Haley, a member of the Reed and Reed construction team who died in a tragic accident last month.

The event is awaiting approval of the Town Council who meets July 25th so please check the town website www.yarmouth.me.us for further information or check the newspapers.
