Celebrating 25 Years

In 2023, Bartlett Woods Retirement Community will be 25 years old. Imagine . . . What a time to pause and say thank you to all of you who have inspired us to be the right place because we do the right thing.

Together, we will celebrate our community and show our gratitude through a series of anniversary events, such as The 25th Anniversary Cookbook. Filled with beloved recipes from residents, family members, and our staff, it captures special moments of meal preparation, which our extended family has enjoyed over the years. From soup to nuts, we hope you make a new delectable discovery or reconnect with an old forgotten favorite when you peruse these pages. This special project is a fundraising effort to support our 25th community celebration. Our enthusiastic Bartlett Woods family has made this possible. We are so very grateful for the participation of all who contributed.   By doing so, and supporting the sales of the cookbook, you help us mark this significant milestone and acknowledge Bartlett Woods as one of the only not-for-profit retirement communities in Midcoast Maine.

Good news! We are now taking pre-orders for the 100-recipe book. The holiday season is coming, and of course, we believe our project should be on every gift-giving list. The price is $15.00, and we can receive payments now, in cash or check form (made out to Bartlett Woods Inc.). Attached is an order form (pdf) you can print out for your convenience. Please reach out to Amy Sabins or Lori Schafer for further details.

We expect the final product to be in our hands after Thanksgiving. We’ll keep you posted!

We thank you and our wider community for believing in Bartlett. May we all look forward to many more delicacies and delights shared during the next 25 years!
