Age-Friendly Presque Isle

Contact: Kim Smith (

Joined the AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities: 2018-05-04

Structure: City-staff with volunteer committee

Highlight of 2023: Creating an afternoon concert series in the garden park of a local historic house museum thanks to sponsorship from AARP Maine.  Provides opportunity for socialization, better use of underutilized asset, brings more visibility to Age Friendly Presque Isle, the 1875 Vera Estey House Museum, and promotes local musical talent.  Largest barrier was cost to provide the concerts.
