Bar Harbor Age-Friendly

Contact: Andrea Lepcio (

Joined the AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities: 2017-02-16

Structure: Town-appointed, all-volunteer committee

Highlight of 2023: We proposed a regular column on aging to our local weekly newspaper, and they were very interested. So far, we have published six articles and are continuing to identify topics and potential authors. 

Bar Harbor Age Friendly collaborated with AARP to publish a Resource Guide to connect the local aging and senior population with community resources. The initial printing was distributed to Bar Harbor residents. MDI Hospital reached out for 100 additional copies to distribute at their Health Centers; with their partnership additional copies were printed. Currently, revisions and updates are in the pipeline for the next printing.
