Congratulations to Dylan Collin who was selected to represent Mount Desert Island High School in the 27th Annual Lobster Bowl, to be played on Saturday, July 16th 2016. This year the Lobster Bowl will take place at 4 PM at Waterhouse Field in Biddeford.

Net proceeds from the game are for the benefit of the 22 Shrine Hospitals for Children across the US, Canada, and Mexico. The Maine Shrine Lobster Bowl Game was created to raise money and to help make the public aware of the expert orthopedic and burn care facilities available, regardless of the patients’ ability to pay, to children who desperately need this specialized care.

Dylan is committed to raising a minimum of $500 but he needs your help. If you're willing to make a donation, please email him at or call him at (207) 669-5083.

The student athletes participating are high school seniors who will have just graduated and are about to enter college. They are nominated to play in the Lobster Bowl by their coaches and selected by a committee from the Maine Athletics Association.

Last year, Sandy Henggeler and Ashley McEachern represented MDI High School.
