Bath Brochure

Ever wonder where the Bath Brochures are distributed? All over the place is the easy answer. Just yesterday I delivered 11 boxes of brochures to Portland and Yarmouth where they will be displayed at the International Ferry Terminal, the Jet Port and the bus/train station. I also went to check out our display that Main Street has had for years at the Yarmouth Visitor Center, one of only 2 free-standing displays. The manager says they have about 300,000 people who come through there every year! And this years brochure cover is sure to catch the eye, thank you KDB for the photo!.

If you need brochures, just let me know and we will get them to you. And if you or someone you know is going somewhere where you can share brochures, come and get some. The brochures aren't any good sitting in boxes! We want the world to know how much Bath has to offer!

Cruise Ships

The first cruise ship is coming in Friday as far as we all know. The schedule was in one of the previous emails. If there is an updated schedule I’ll get it to you. Alison Freeman will go and greet the passengers and talk up Bath (she’s REALLY good at this!) If you want to make your brochure or rack card available, please get them to the MSB office ASAP. And don’t forget the Scottish/Irish reunion is also looking for brochures.

Summer Concert Series

The Summer concerts will be starting up beginning on Tuesday, June 19th. There will be free, live music most Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturdays. The concert guide is being printed and will be distributed as soon as we get it. In the meanwhile, get familiar with what’s happening so you can share the information with your friends and customers. There will be a very special performance by the Air National Guard Band of the North East on June 26th. Take note, this is going to be a good one. More to come.

Two Losses for Downtown Bath

We have lost two icons in our Downtown recently. It is with heavy heart that I share this information.

Marlene Gerberick, who has had a second floor artist studio, has been one of my favorite people to see and chat with on the sidewalks of Downtown Bath for years, has passed away. I loved to see her walking along, often with her big, wooden walking stick. She was always so thoughtful about topics of conversation and had a great sense of humor. On June 23rd from 1:00-4:00 you can go see Marlene's art in her studio and visit with her family members. Read more about Marlene here.

And Gus the Dog. Gus was a gentle giant who could be seen doing errands with his David King for many years. Gus, you were a good dog. May you have endless treats wherever you are now.
This weekend is packed with all kinds of things going on between Alumni Weekend, events at the MMM with the Mary E., Macbeth at the CCAC and more. Check out the Community Calendar so you can be an ambassador for our community.

Have a great weekend!
