The Camden Rotary Club has many people to thank for their help with this year’s July 4th Music by the Sea celebration. We are deeply grateful to the sponsors of this event, whose generous contributions totaling more than $30,000 made the music possible and will help fund our annual grants to local nonprofit organizations. Music by the Sea involves many of our club members as well as the wider community. We could not have made it happen on our own!

Many thanks to the Town of Camden and the Camden Public Library for providing beautiful outdoor settings for our performances.

Bravo to our wonderful performers: The Bay Chamber Jazz Ensemble, Casco Bay Wind Symphony, Singer-Songwriter Chris Ross, and The Right Track. We appreciate the willingness of these dedicated musicians to spend a good deal of the holiday making the day such a special one.

And hooray for the appreciative audience. It was great to see so many people come out for a beautiful afternoon and evening among family, friends, neighbors, and visitors. We were delighted to see everyone celebrating our nation’s heritage of freedom and independence together.

Yours sincerely,

Judith Tarbox
President, Camden Rotary Club
