Island to Island Aid October 13

There is something special about living on an Island. Islanders take care of Islanders. I have seen it before having lived on Block Island, Key Biscayne and Bermuda. In the 32 years that I have lived in Maine, I have been especially awed by Mainers generosity. Now a group of Bar Harbor businesses are banding together, this Friday, October 13th, to help Islanders in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands who are suffering from the Hurricane Maria.

The devastation in Puerto Rico is still mind-blowing. Nearly 3 weeks after Hurricane Maria blew through Puerto Rico, 85 percent of the Island is still without electricity. Only 28 percent of the Island’s cell towers are functioning. 40 percent of the Island does not have access to drinking water.

On Friday, October 13th, participating establishments will donate a portion of their proceeds to United for Puerto Rico and the Fund for the Virgin Islands to help with hurricane recovery efforts. By stopping into your favorite places for a drink or a bite to eat you will help support Island neighbors to the south!

Participating establishments include: Chart Room Restaurant, Cottage Street Pub, Galyn’s, Havana, Side Street Cafe, The Blue Door, Thirsty Whale Tavern, Peekytoe Provisions, ImprovAcadia, Window Panes, Bistro on Eden (in the Atlantic Oceanside Hotel), Geddy’s, Amy Madden Roebuck (Bar Harbor Blues Chocolates)  West Street Cafe, Acadia Stand Up Paddle Boarding and Bar Harbor Hemporium.
