Good Bye & Good Luck!

The Abbe Museum Staff at the Annual Meeting, Nora's last event with us!
In mid-August, the Abbe Museum said a bittersweet goodbye to Events Coordinator Nora Miller.  The Abbe Museum will miss her, but we wish her luck in her next endeavor, as she pursues a Masters Degree in Public Health at Harvard University.

Nora began at the Abbe back in January, and accomplished many things during her eight months with us.  Here is a short summary of a few of the many projects Nora took on:

The Spring Garden Tour
The Abbe Museum was the beneficiary of this year's Spring Garden Tour at the W.P. Stewart Estate in Northeast Harbor.  For this special fundraiser, Nora created a website, coordinated volunteers, and coordinated the event, which raised over $12,000 for the Abbe Museum.

Abbe Museum Rental Program
This past spring, Nora formally launched the Abbe Museum's Rental Program.  After re-writing the rental policy, Nora began marketing the Abbe Museum as a rental facility for corporate events, weddings, and more.  Learn more about the Abbe's Rental Program, or download the rental brochure.

Greening the Abbe
While at the Abbe Museum Nora began research on greening the museum which culminated in the July 18th launch of the Greening the Abbe Initiative.  With steps in place to make the Abbe a more sustainable institution, the project was launched at our annual Gathering Gala, where supporters raised their paddles and donated over $31,000 to Green the Abbe!  Learn more about Greening the Abbe.

Events, Events, and more Events
2012 was a busy year at the Abbe Museum, and Nora helped the Abbe Museum host many successful events.  Among those were...The Winter Gathering, The Waponahki Student Art Show Reception, Business After Hours, Hospitality & Tourism Industry Reception, The AASLH Annual Meeting, Transcending Traditions Reception,  The Gathering Gala, The Annual Meeting, and much more.  Thanks to Nora, this year's many events were a huge success.

Nora Miller, thank you and good luck!
