BENEFITING: MOUNT DESERT ISLAND HISTORICAL SOCIETY
EVENT DATE: Oct 19, 2014
The Mount Desert Island Historical Society keeps, discovers, and celebrates the history of Mount Desert Island. This year, the funds we raise will support our educational outreach to high school, undergraduate, and graduate students. Students at MDI High School will conduct oral histories and build a dory. University of Maine and College of the Atlantic students will create innovative historical presentations for new media, and graduate students will use archival resources to document changes in the flora and fauna of MDI over the last century. Thank you for helping to introduce a new generation to the history of Mount Desert Island.
On the day of the marathon, October 19, listen for our percussion ensemble at the Old School House & Museum on Sound Drive in Mount Desert, near mile 18.
