"On October 18, St. Saviour's hosted a great occasion - raising money for our neighbors' food and fuel here on Mount Desert Island. We are all welcome to use these buildings given by previous generations of folks on our island to serve everyone's needs. We get to enjoy them now and pass them on to all the generations to come. May the 3 Penny Cabaret be followed by many such community efforts and celebrations." -- The People of St. Saviour's Parish
