Funds will support PortSide programming this summer and more. We are getting a permit to be in Atlantic Basin from July 1 to Aug 24, and we have been invited to bring the Mary A. Whalen to some other piers.

 Offering free programming in Atlantic Basin costs us. In addition to the cost of the programs themselves, our permit for Atlantic Basin requires that we get new additional types of insurance (cost now up to $13,000) and security cameras and recording devices (costs being assessed).
