Christmas in July

Posted to Community Market of the Kennebunks by Karen Winton

"Just hear those sleigh bells jingling, ring ting tingling too 
Come on, it's lovely weather for a special Market Day with you."

Mr. and Mrs. CMOK want to bring to your attention that there are only 161 days until Christmas! Here's your chance to beat the crowds at the malls, forget about online shopping,  just put on those flip flops and head to the Community Market of the Kennebunks on Saturday, July 21st for our Christmas in July event. 

Buying from baker

See all the wondrous items created by Maine artisans ready to be wrapped for the holiday. Unique gift ideas you won't find anyplace else! No sugarplums this year!

Or, buy something for yourself, and save on the wrapping paper and bow! Come stroll among the vendors, have a cup of coffee, and wish everyone Happy Holidays!

Sharing Instagram post: OUCH

Posted to Mike's Mic by Michael Pardue

sea wall and sidewalk damage

OUCH. This photo falls very short at depicting the degree of damage the last several high tides have generated at Kennebunk beaches. Kudos to Public Services and Public Safety personnel for keeping the area clear of debris and therefore as safe as it can be given the loss of portions of the sea wall and adjacent sidewalks. Huge amount of work and expense lies ahead but we are already “on it.” Please be careful if you are taking a peek, as structural integrity assessment of wall, sidewalk and roadway remains a work in progress.
