For Julia and family


Our hearts go out to our devoted board member Julia Simmons whose husband, Justin, passed away on Sunday.  He leaves behind their daughter, Lexi and his son, Kai. Justin shared Julia's passion for family, nature and food.

Julia's positive energy reaches far and she has made significant contributions to the Bath Freight Shed Alliance advocating for the local farmers, access to local food, and opening doors for her students at Morse.  Julia works hard for her family and our community and we are determined to rally for her and help in any way we can through this difficult time.

We have set up a site, "Julia's Helping Hands”,  to organize cooking driving, childcare; you name it...

The Justin Simmons Memorial Fund has been established at Bath Savings to help Julia and her children. 

Please show Julia how important she is to us and that our community is grateful for her contributions.


Wiebke Theodore.
