Tonight, we would also like to recognize local preservation advocates, Wiebke and Steven Theodore, of Arrowsic.
The Theodore’s have dedicated years to saving the Bath Freight Shed and transforming it into a space for the community. Wiebke has been instrumental in making it a home for the Bath Winter Farmer’s Market, a task that includes grant writing, fundraising, and volunteer organizing.
Recent efforts include a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised $18,000 and a concert/local foods night that raised funding for the Bath Area Food Bank.
Steven serves as the vice president of Maine’s First Ship, a group that is reconstructing the Virginia, the first ship built in North America, also on site of the freight shed.
Together, this committed team has brought together the greater Bath community in order to achieve a commendable shared goal: the preservation of the freight shed.
Because of the Theodores, the City of Ships has even more to be proud about.
