Fish Tales Free Community Supper

March 19 @ 5:30 pm

Are you reliant on the sea for your livelihood or recreation? Whether you’ve been fishing or working along the harbors of Tremont and Southwest Harbor for a few months, or your family has been here for generations, this free community supper is a chance to connect with friends and neighbors to share your memories, favorite fish stories, and talk about the future of our working waterfront.

Hosted by Mount Desert Island Historical Society, Gulf of Maine Research Institute, and Schoodic Institute, the evening’s goal will be to foster conversation among the island’s west-side fishing community and those businesses that rely on it, supporting your connection to each other, the waterfront, and our shared history. The MDI Historical Society will share historic photos from our collection of the working waterfront, fishing families, and businesses to inspire stories and memories, and we invite you to bring your own images to share with each other.

Historic storms, economic pressures, shifting regulations, and changes to the marine ecosystem are bringing new realities to our fishing community, and we invite you to share those experiences together.

Free dinner and drinks will be provided at the Legion Hall, 22 Village Green Way in Southwest Harbor, on March 19, 5:30pm. To reserve your spot, please email raney@mdihistory.org or call 207-276-9323.
