Thank you for joining us as a Patron as we honor and celebrate the leadership and legacy of the Dixon family and their deep commitment to Schoodic Institute as we approach our 25th Anniversary. Fitz E. Dixon saw limitless possibility in a shuttered Navy base, envisioning a vital center for science and learning. Edith took up this mantle and for 20 years championed, transformed, and energized Schoodic Institute into a leader in the response to rapid change in Acadia and beyond. We look forward to your company as we pay tribute to our founders and look forward to the next 25 years of science, learning, and community.
