Orono resident receives MDI award.

Orono -

ORONO – The Jordan Pond House recently treated Island Connections Volunteers and Neighbors to tea and popovers. Mel Everly, recently of Mount Desert Island and now with his wife Margaret Everly a resident of Orono, received the David P. Evans Memorial Award for years of service above and beyond. Mel delivered hot meals, drove seniors to appointments and was Board member and Secretary of Island Connections for many years. Mel and his wife Margaret were a team blessing. She brightened the office with her sense of humor and her quiet, efficient presence. The Everlys will be sorely missed by their Mount Desert Island friends and colleagues at Island Connections.
