Mark your calendar for “An Evening on Sippican Harbor,” a town-wide celebration and fundraiser to be held on Thursday, August 19, from 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm at One Water Street, Marion. This event, hosted by The Friends of the Marion Council on Aging (FMCOA), will be an evening acknowledging past accomplishments and a major fundraiser to complete the final phase of the public/private partnership for the Cushing Community Park Project to develop a walking path and pavilion located at the Benjamin D. Cushing Community Center. This project will benefit all generations in our Marion community. The walking path funds have already been raised, and the all-accessible path is scheduled to be completed by the end of August. The FMCOA has made a generous leadership gift of $50,000 toward construction of the 26’ x 36’ Pavilion, which has an overall estimated cost of $150,000. Tickets for this affordable event ($40 ea.) are on sale at The Marion General Store, Kate’s Simple Eats, and Mimis. We look forward to seeing you and your friends for FMCOA’s second summer fundraiser and celebration party on August 19.
