Stonington - New England Science & Sailing will kick off its 10th anniversary celebration with its NESS Fest on June 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at its facility on Water Street in the borough. Ten years after its founding, the nonprofit organization now serves 3,000 students a year through sailing, science, and adventure sports programs.
The family-oriented celebration will feature food and free activities including sailing, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding and face painting. Those who attend can meet the NESS staff, tour the facilities including the marine science lab, and view the organization's fleet of boats. The event is open to the public.
"We are honored to have served our community for the last ten years, and we look forward to bringing our impactful curriculum to even more students in the years to come," said NESS President Spike Lobdell "NESS's evolution into a nationally-recognized, award-winning adventure education provider has been supported by so many friends, customers, partners, volunteers, and staff. Our entire community should be proud of what we've accomplished over the last decade."
