Arts funding

To the Editor:

For the fifth year, the Kristen Klint Arts Fund held a Spring Celebration and Silent Auction to benefit the scholarship that we established in the name of our dear friend who was also a well-loved and respected member of the Mount Desert Island community.

Once again, our event was a rousing success, thanks completely to the generosity and kindness of island businesses and friends of Kristen. Thanks to all of their help, we were able to add to our growing fund.

The KKAF awards scholarships to Mount Desert Island women of any age who are pursuing a creative endeavor; the money might be used for supplies, travel for a particular project or school or lessons in their craft, amongst other things. This honors the memory of Kristen, who was a writer, photographer and filmmaker, who loved this island, and who knew first hand the economic difficulties that sometimes face year-round residents of MDI.

We are so grateful to all of our donors and to the folks who came out to bid and to celebrate the spirit of Kristen and the fund. Thank you.
