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

Rating: 5 stars  

we began volunteering for acadia in honor of and sadly in memory of our beloved niece Danielle Faramelli. We as a family of atleast 30 people have been going to acadia every year for over 30 years. in 2006 danielle has expressed to her parents that she would like to volunteer there to give back some of the happy times acadia has given us--sadly she was killed in a car accident at the age of 25 before she could ever do this--her mom and dad didnt know if they could ever go to maine again since the loss of their only child-that summer her mom decided she could go if volunteering was part of our vavation--she had no idea all 25 or 30 of us would show up that day in maine-needless to say we fulfilled Danielles wish and have been doing this in her honor every year when we return to the beautiful state of maine-we come from pa, and its a 14 hour drive-we have mostly 6 or 7 carloads of people going every year and we will continue to volunteer in her memory until there is no one left--which wont happen because the third generation has already started-my grandson has been with us there for all 3 of his years already and will be there this year for his fourth year---we all love all of maine--acadia is our favorite having provided us many memories and now the chance to give back is both an honor and privelege.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

how wonderful the people are and how nice one group can make a place there.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

none i can think of

Role:  Volunteer & we planted trees behind the jackson lab-made a path which we lovingly call Danielles path in almost the same place--we also weeded on carriage roads.
