Acadia National Park and the Friends of Acadia held their annual Roadside Clean-up Saturday, April 29, 2023. During the course of the morning staff from Bar Harbor Savings and Loan Association volunteered along with other members of the community to help observe Earth Day by pitching-in to help clean-up trash and other debris along the roadside. “BHSLA continues to support Acadia National Park and Friends of Acadia,” said David Cohen, Senior Vice President and Treasurer. “We always enjoy getting out and helping the community we live and work in, and do all that we can to help the preserve its beauty.”

Members of BHSLA staff, family and friends, spent the morning cleaning up litter and debris along the roadside. The group included David & Jill Cohen, Rhonda Sawyer, Ardette Spear, Casey Beaman and Sequan Henries, Jacquie & Ken Colburn, Maureen & Wyatt Kane. This year’s crew picked up items such as aluminum cans, bottles, plastic bags, as well as various paper, styrofoam and cardboard products.
