Community legacy

BAR HARBOR — Sargent Collier hosted a fundraiser Sunday for the Bar Harbor Village Improvement Association (VIA) and other community projects at the Farm House Garden on Highbrook Road.

The VIA has evolved over its 135 year history, he said, and recently has added dozens of new members.

Collier said he also is working, through a new Harvester Trust, to “build alliances with groups that are connected to Bar Harbor’s history to help the town preserve its heritage.”
