Last Call at the Market

Posted to Community Market of the Kennebunks by Karen Winton

Shopping Alert.....Shopping Alert.....Shopping Alert.....Shopping Alert.....Brought to you by the Community Market of the Kennebunks!

Mark your calendars... the final Market Day is this Saturday, October 6th. This season has brought together a wonderful group of Maine crafters who have shared their artistic passions and talents every Saturday since late May at the Community Market of the Kennebunks. Additionally, each week two of our vendors would donate an item for our raffle resulting in two very happy raffle winners. Weather was never a detrimental factor as the shows were held under the cover of Kennebunk's Waterhouse Center on Main Street. Whether market-goers had heard about the market from various sources or were walking or driving by, all were pleased that they had stopped and shopped.

Scenes from the Market

Plan to spend time at the market this Saturday and get all your holiday shopping done early this year. The wide variety and the quality of the items made by our Maine based artisans is truly amazing. Purchase something special for friends and family; heck, purchase something special for yourself.

As official mascots for the Community Market, we'd like to say thanks to all who shared time with us during the season. As Roy Rogers and Dale Evans used to say,

"Happy trails to you, until we meet again,

Happy trails to you, keep smilin' until then.

Happy Trails to you, 'til we meet again."

See you next year - first day of the 2019 Community Market will be in late May.

Best Regards,

Mr. and Mrs. CMOK

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.
