Firefighters Association holds annual dinner

BAR HARBOR — The annual dinner of the Bar Harbor Firefighters Association was held at Kebo Valley Golf Club on May 5.

The association supports the Fire Department by providing supplies and equipment beyond what’s included in the town budget, hosting the dinner and providing flags and markers for firefighters’ grave sites, among other projects.

“I used to chase the whistle as a little kid on my bike,” said Fire Chief Matt Bartlett. “It’s an honor to serve as fire chief.”

The group held its annual meeting before dinner, reelecting John Cunningham, Sean Dow, Matt Horton, Jai Higgins and John Sanders to the group’s board of directors.
