Lighting the way to hope and remembrance



BAR HARBOR – The YWCA Mount Desert Island hosted the 19th Annual Carol Dyer Memorial Luminaria Evening on Saturday. The annual event, held on the Village Green, honors cancer survivors and those who have lost their battle with cancer. It was started by the friends of Carol Dyer, a children’s librarian for the Jesup Memorial Library who passed away from a brain tumor in 2001. More than 240 luminarias were lit in honor of friends and loved ones. Proceeds from this year’s event will be donated to Hospice Volunteers of Hancock County.
