The 31st Annual David R. Harding Memorial Golf Tournament will be held Thursday, September 26th at Kebo Valley Golf Club in Bar Harbor.

In 2021 MDI Hospital was selected as the beneficiary of the Tournament by Bar Harbor Bank & Trust, and the Hospital raised $15.000 to support the funding of a new MRI machine for the Hospital. In 2022, Bar Harbor Bank & Trust , recognizing the vital services that MDI Hospital supplied to the community, selected MDI Hospital to manage the Tournament and be the primary beneficiary going forward. That year the Tournament raised over $31,000.

David Harding was the Chairman of the Board for Bar Harbor Bankshares for many years. He was a strong community supporter and instrumental in launching the MDI YMCA.
