An award-winning weekly newspaper and summer guide publisher covering Mount Desert Island, including Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.
We see our role as a primary source, both in print and online, for helping disseminate information about Acadia and the National Park Service’s rich history and about local and regional efforts to celebrate both that past and everything the future holds. Much of that task will be accomplished via continuing coverage in the regular paper and our websites www.mdislander.com and www.ellsworthamerican.com.
In addition we wish to produce a special newspaper advertising supplement full of associated stories crafted by staff, stringers, and folks in participating organizations.
Ideally the publication would be timed to have the section serve as an advance piece prior to the centennial’s signature event/s. A reasonable number of additional copies could be produced to serve as programs for said events and for distribution at information centers.
The Mount Desert Islander is a Signature Sponsor of the 2016 Acadia Centennial Celebration.
