Review for ABBE MUSEUM, Bar Harbor, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Abbe is over 80 years old, and has a story to tell that is timeless, but the staff is youthful, creative and up-to-the-minute in terms of museum management and interpretation. There is a wonderful team spirit and genuine desire to learn among the Board, staff and volunteers that make this a very satisfying place to serve as a Trustee. Outreach to the community, both tribal and nontribal, is vibrant and continues to keep the mission front and center so that the Abbe's place as a unique resource for the State of Maine, the entire Northeast U.S. and the country, is clear.

Review for Friends of Acadia, Bar Harbor, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Friends of Acadia is a top notch organization in every way: it has a clear mission broadly shared by the organization's membership and Board; visionary leadership that listens to the community and its members; collaborates actively with other like-minded nonprofits; works to support Park priorities where appropriate; careful stewards of donations and funds; thoughtful in taking positions and key issues; and knows how to make being active in the organization fun and rewarding. From picking up trash along the roadsides, family fun day, to the annual benefit auction, this is a an exceptionally well-run and effective group.
