Coast Guard City Committee Accepts Lobster Festival Contribution to the Coast Guard Appreciation Dinnner
Rockland is proud to be a "Coast Guard City" (one of only 16). Directors of the Maine Lobster Festival include people who are active in many other community endeavors. A few are members of the Coast Guard City Committee. Members of the United States Coast Guard live in midcoast Maine. The City Committee assures these members and their families feel welcomed in the community. Each summer a family picnic is held at the Sennebec Campground. Each fall, the committee hosts the Chili Challenge. Flying Santa visits the Coast Guard children each Christmas.
In the spring of 2014, the committee presented the 8th Annual Coast Guard Appreciation Dinner.
The Maine Lobster Festival contributed $250.00 to the Coast Guard City Committee to make sure their was plenty of food for the hungry Coasties, and gifts for their spouses.
