Eastport’s Coast Guard Station will be the subject of a Sunday Afternoons at the Arts Center program on January 15 at 3 pm. Mindy Rivello, Officer in Charge of the Base, and other members of the station will give a talk about the nature of their mission on a day-to-day basis, and will be able to answer attendees’ questions about their duties and the Coast Guard in general.
U.S. Coast Guard Station Eastport is a multi-mission unit under the command of Sector Northern New England. The members assigned to the unit conduct Search and Rescue, Maritime Law Enforcement, Commercial Fishing Vessel Safety, and Integrated Cross-Border Maritime Law Enforcement missions. Station Eastport’s area of responsibility runs from the Canadian International Boundary on the St. Croix River and the Grand Manan Channel west to Long Point and then seaward along an extension of the U.S./Canadian Boundary. The station has one 47- foot Motor Life Boat and one 29- foot Response Boat Small.
Sunday Afternoons at the Arts Center programs are held in Eastport Arts Center’s cozy downstairs Washington Street Gallery, amidst rotating exhibitions. Admission is by voluntary donation; proceeds are shared equally between the presenters and EAC constituent group The Concert Series, which offers year-round programming run by volunteers. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
