Thank You!

A recognition

A great big thanks to all who have helped make the Damariscotta Mills Fish Ladder Restoration a success! It couldn’t happen without each and every one of you.

On this page we recognize those who have made financial contributions to the fish ladder. We are very, very grateful for this help—the project couldn’t happen without this wonderful support. We also want to say thanks to the many, many individuals and businesses who donated their time, baked goods, baked beans, photographs….the list is long and it would be almost impossible to list all the help we’ve received. Those contributions are equally important and we are very, very appreciative! That said….special thanks to:
