Owls Head — Local business and community members gathered among the antique cars and planes at the Owls Head Transportation Museum May 8 for a Penobscot Bay Regional Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours event.

The gathering offered a chance to look forward to the busy spring/summer season and welcome new chamber members.

The event was co-sponsored by Rockland Rotary, Breakwater Vineyards and French & Brawn Catering & Marketplace. Hors d'oeuvres were provided by French & Brawn, along with wine from Breakwater Vineyards and beer.

In addition, Model T Ford rides were offered to guests.

Museum space was open to guests, so they could enjoy the collection of automobiles, aircraft, motorcycles and engines while engaging with fellow PBRCC members.

The next Business After Hours is scheduled for Wednesday, May 15, featuring the Camden Fire Department with PAWS as the co-sponsor at the Camden Public Safety Building.
