This year we will have two booths at the Machias Wild Blueberry Festival! One booth will represent the 2018 senior class selling lobster rolls. A bottled water, a bag of chips, and a roll can be purchased for only $10! They will also have a live lobster raffle! There will also be a WA information booth where you can come to ask questions, pick up a school calendar, find out more about the school, get a free bumper sticker, or even purchase one of our celebratory 225 year T-shirts. Alumni stop by and update us with your latest news and current contact information. Both booths will be located in the upper bank parking lot.
We hope to see you there!
