Dedication ceremony at Alheim Commons
"Wow!" was the interjection of the day, the universal response of visitors stepping into the Alheim Commons for a look around before and after the dedication ceremony this morning. The compliments came easily — wonderful spaces, beautiful colors, impressive kitchen, comfy quarters... very nice.
The sky was blue, the mood was bright, and the speeches were short and well received. At eleven, the ribbon was cut to a round of applause.
Alheim Commons, a residential facility for coastal scientists, educators, and resource managers, was built thanks to support from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the State of Maine Marine Infrastructure and Technology Fund, and friends and partners of Laudholm Trust. If you were involved, Thank You!
