Marina gift

MOUNT DESERT — The Garden Club of Mount Desert, which last year pledged $10,000 for the Northeast Harbor Marina beautification project, has now given a total of $15,000. The extra $5,000 was formally accepted by the Board of Selectmen Tuesday night.

The Summer Residents Association has given $10,000, and the selectmen voted in January to use $20,000 in leftover contingency funds from the 2011-2012 marina redevelopment project.

The marina beautification will include landscaping around the harbormaster’s building and the visitor center.
