This September Coastal Children's Museum reached out to area businesses to invite them to become a Sponsor of the Month.

Through this new initiative local businesses will be able to help the museum defray the cost of programming, which will in turn allow the museum to offer them for little to no cost for museum visitors. Sponsors will also be able to specify whether they want the money donated to be used for multiple workshops or for one large show.

The response has been positive as the museum already has two new Sponsors of the Month. For the month of October the Chewonki Owls of Maine show to be held Saturday, OCt. 19 will be sponsored by The Country Inn at Camden and Rockport and all events for November will be supported by PenBay Veterinary Associates of Rockport.

“I want to thank the Country Inn at Camden and Rockport for being our very first Sponsor of the Month,” said Megan Rogers the Outreach and Program Coordinator for the museum in a news release. “Both the Country Inn and PenBay Veterinary Associates replied immediately to our letter and it means so much to us as a newer nonprofit that we have the belief and support of the local business community. We hope to have a sponsor for each month this winter to keep our programming consistent throughout the year. ”

To become a Sponsor of the Month, please contact the museum at 596-0300 or email Megan Rogers at
