Happy Birthday, Marginal Way
Happy Birthday, Marginal Way

The popular Marginal Way footpath turns 87 this week and volunteers will set up tables at the Anchorage by the Sea and the Sparhawk Resort to discuss the organization’s mission with visitors. 

“Our volunteers will be there from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.,” said Catherine Palmer, Executive Director of the charitable organization.  “That’s long enough to find 87 new members who love this path and want to help preserve it.”

One group of volunteers will be set up near the south gate on the lawn of the Anchorage by the Sea and another will work near the swimming pool area of the Sparhawk Resort.

Volunteers will offer Marginal Way DVDs to new members.  They are: Jane Sweetland of South Berwick, Nancy Hilton of Arundel, Hannah and Meg Webb of Wells, Kerry Ellen Enright, Barbara O’Leary and Ben Hershenson of Ogunquit.

“It takes millions to keep it there − dollars, that is,” Palmer said of the high cost of restoring the mile-long path after damaging weather.

About Ogunquit’s Marginal Way

In 1925, Josiah Chase of York deeded a magnificent strip of Maine coastline to the then Village of Ogunquit.  Local business leaders formed the Marginal Way Preservation Fund, a nonprofit, in 2010, to build an Endowment for long-term conservation.
