Updates and Meeting on Oct.18th

Join us tomorrow morning at 8:00AM for the last of our 3 preparing for the market meetings!

We are getting so close!!  Here is what has been happening and what is in the works: Mid Coast Energy has installed the heating system and NW Sewall installed the propane. The storm doors have arrived at Coastal Glass and will be installed on Friday - into the super elegant and functional frames Luke and Eric Winne built and generously donated!  The Electrical Technology Students from BRCTC (under Steve Vachon's instruction) are only a few days away from finishing the wiring of the south end of the building!  On Thursday Higmo will deliver locally harvested and milled lumber for floor repairs.  Don't miss their open house:  Saw Mill Days on Nov.3 and 4th.

Maine's First Ship volunteers and Jay Coffey in particular, have been working hard to consolidate the boat building operation and exhibits to make space for the Farmers' Market!  What a team! Market goers will enjoy learning more about this important project based in the Freight Shed.

Many thanks to the great crew who scraped, painted, raked, cleaned and more, before the pot luck supper at the Freight Shed on Sunday!

If you have some time and want to volunteer during the next two weeks - just let us know. Or simply stop over on a Thursday or Saturday morning!

Remember make sure if nothing else, put Nov. 3rd on you calendar for the Winter Bath Farmers' Market opening.. then every Saturday after that!!

Thank you City of Bath!

On October 6th the City of Bath honored the Bath Freight Shed Alliance with the Community Project award.

"The Bath Freight Shed Alliance is applauded for its work unifying area non-profits, businesses and individuals for the common goal of renewing and restoring a relic of Bath's working waterfront. The City of Bath recognizes the Bath Freight Shed Alliance for its revitalization of a historic building on Bath's waterfront and its commitment to community, education, preservation and the environment."

We are very honored. This is a wonderful boost as we head toward our next milestone: The Bath Winter Farmers' Market opening on November 3rd!
