Kennebunkport Historical Society Hosts Fundraiser

Today was a very exciting day on Maine Street, as the Kennebunkport Historical Society hosted a family friendly daytime fundraiser.  Last month, former President George H.W. Bush found himself all over the news, as he and his secret service staff appeared in photos with shaved heads.  It was quite a sight!  But the story behind the image was even more heartwarming.  The two year old son, named Patrick, of one of the President’s security detail was recently diagnosed with leukemia, and after… Read More

Upcoming Events in Kennebunkport Maine

Kennebunkport Maine is full of fun activities throughout the year, but this weekend offers an exceptional number of exciting things to do – both indoors and out!  And while the weather is forecasted to be phenomenal, some of the indoor options might just be what the doctor ordered when you need a break from the sun, which is something I certainly need in order to not look like a lobster (that particular shade of red is excellent on my plate, but not on me!).  So… Read More

HBO Documentary “41” Premiers in Kennebunkport
