Our annual Community Cookout on Memorial Day following the parade and ceremonies in Northeast Harbor is just around the corner and scheduled for Monday, May 29. The Parade starts at 10:30am, followed by Memorial Day ceremonies by American Legion Post 103 at the Joseph Musetti Veterans Memorial Park (at aproximately 11:00am). Afterwards, join us (rain or shine) under the tent for the Community Cookout.

Special thanks to our terrific cookout sponsors, Northeast Plumbing & Heating, S.R. Tracy Paint Shop, Thomas W. Wallace Construction, and Main Street Vareity.

We hope to see you there! The suggested donation is just $5, and veterans are invited to join us "on the house."




We had another great season of the Community Cafe, breaking attendance records and running the most popular winter restaurant in town! We'll take the summer off, but save your appetite for next fall when the program will start back up in November on the 1st & 3rd Thursday of each month.




The Neighborhood House

The Neighborhood House has been many things to many people since its doors opened in 1905. In those hundred-plus years, the Town of Mount Desert has certainly gone through a plethora of change, as too has The Neighborhood House itself. One thing that has remained the same, however, is the mission of The Neighborhood House and the importantThe Neighborhood House role it plays within our community.

The vaudeville performances and bowling lanes from years past may have long since been superseded by community celebrations, yoga classes, and the like; but the spirit with which it was founded remains the same. In fact, today, The Neighborhood House offers more programs and events than it has at any other point in its long history.

Show Your Support for NHH

The Neighborhood House depends on private financial support so that it may continue to provide a wide array of programs and events to the entire community throughout the year. Any gift, no matter the size, is greatly appreciated and will aid us in achieving that goal. Equally important are the volunteers, without whom non of this would be possible.
