for providing such delicious food!
On April 26 the Abbe Museum was the host of the Bar Harbor Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours. We had a great turnout of local business owners who were able to check out the Student Art Show as well as the Indians and Rusticators Exhibit. The Business After Hours at the Abbe Museum was generously supported by a number of our community partners, who donated wine and food to make the event a success. The Abbe Museum would like to thank A.B. & J.R. Hodgkins and Pleasant Street Pilates for their donation of wine for this event, and Chow Maine of Southwest Harbor for donating a delicious array of Asian specialties. Additional hors d’oeuvres were provided by the Abbe Museum’s Culinary Arts Committee, a group of volunteers who love to prepare treats for our events. We would also like to thank Bar Harbor Whale Watch for donating two tickets aboard the Night Sky Festival Cruise to our lucky raffle winners! Thank you to all our partners in the Mount Desert Island Community for all their support!
The following week the Abbe Museum hosted a Hospitality & Tourism Open House for our partners in the tourism industry, including the many Bar Harbor inns, B&B’s, and hotels. As the busy season approaches we hope that our neighbors have the opportunity to visit the Abbe Museum’s special exhibitions so that they can become advocates for the Abbe, sharing information about what we have to offer to their interested guests. If you have not been to the Abbe Museum recently and would like to experience what we have available for your customers and guests, please contact us to learn how we can help add value to the Bar Harbor experience.
