to over 150 people in our community who came to join in the fun at the Lobster & More event August 18. All ages danced to the lively blue grass music of the Sandy River Ramblers, dined on appetizers, delicious lobsters, oysters, chicken, salads and blueberry deserts on the banks of the Damariscotta River.  Over 220 votes, three votes per person, were cast for the People’s Choice Awards in the Art Tent after folks perused art displayed by the twenty artists exhibiting.  With thanks to  Salt Bay Framers, three cash awards were awarded to Hannah Ineson, Kim Skillin Traina and Will Kefauver.

Months of planning, and countless volunteer hours by the staff, the board of directors and members of the community, made the evening possible.  The Lincoln Home is grateful to the many local businesses and individuals who generously sponsored the event with financial support, in-kind donations and to the artists, who donated a portion of their sales. Director of Nursing, Millie Jones-Farnham, and husband Jon, donated 300 lobsters and tons of seaweed. A heartfelt thank you to First National Bank, Camden Wealth Management, Bath Savings, Bruce Bachelder, CPA, William Brewer, Accountant, Cheney Insurance, Colby and Gale, Inc., Community Shellfish, Damariscotta Bank & Trust, Damariscotta Hardware, Mark Doe/Louis Doe Hardware, Doyle & Nelson, Attorneys, EM Wood Construction, Jon Farnham Lobsters, First Federal Savings & Loan, Floor Magic, Guardian Pharmacy, Hall Funeral Home, Hammond Lumber, HM Payson & Co,. Lincoln County News, Maine Energy Performance Solutions, Mid-Coast Energy Systems, Inc., Mook Sea Farm Oysters, Native Maine Produce, Newcastle Publick House, Oxbow Brewery, Que Rico, Reny’s, Salt Bay Framers, Strong-Hancock Funeral Home, Sysco Tidewater Telecom, and many Anonymous & In-Kind Donors.

Steve Raymond, Director of Admissions and Community Outreach, had this to share: “One day three years ago in a board meeting, Bruce Bachelder casually said, ‘What would you think about doing a Lobster Bake? I can do the cooking.’ And it instantly seemed like great idea. And now, three years later, we have held three fun-filled events that have benefitted our Resident Financial Assistance Fund. It’s great when a simple idea blossoms into more good things than we can count, and that’s exactly what has happened with the Lobster Bake. Our board members and staff give generously of their time and labor in support of the Lincoln Home, and especially with all the work involved in the Lobster Bake. Head chef, Julie Adams and her excellent staff, including Brittany Meservier and Shana York, working together as a team, give Lincoln Home it’s renowned reputation for their dining services and quality of food not only at the LobsterBake, but all year round.” 

 The money raised helps support the Financial Assistance Fund at The Lincoln Home for residents who have outlived their financial resources.

 Check out The Lincoln Home’s Facebook page to see all the great photos of the event!  Watch for the publicity and mark your calendar for next year’s Lobster & More event.
