To the Editor:
I am writing to all the supportive fans of Maine Maritime Academy Basketball in the Mount Desert Island area.
Please accept our sincerest gratitude for your support of a great inaugural MMA Men’s Basketball benefit cruise held recently.
With a packed vessel, great weather, a gorgeous sunset and calm seas, the cruise could not have gone any better. We want to thank the Bar Harbor Whale Watch Co., and specifically Captain Matt Ketchen, an MMA grad, and naturalist extraordinaire Zack Klyver for this tremendous idea. It is one we hope to continue for many years to come.
We also would like to thank Machias Savings Bank and the Fish House Grill Restaurant for donating the tremendous food that we had on board our cruise and photographer Barry Gutradt for the terrific pictures he took during the event.
Our 2nd annual event is tentatively scheduled for next September. We’d love to have even more people from the MDI community attend.
Thanks again to all involved in this worthwhile event. We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible in Castine this season to see our Mariners on the hardwood.
