First Donut Breakfast 2022


You know summer has arrived with our first donut breakfast. A surprisingly good crowd showed up for donuts from the Cookie Jar in Cape Elizabeth. It was not 100% like past years, but more of a hybrid with indoor seating for about 50 people and outdoor picnic tables including those at the Inn. Some just chose to take their donuts and return to their cottages. Besides donuts and coffee, merchandise was setup under canopies at the back of the clubhouse. There was also a little art station for children to decorate paper bags for popcorn to be served at the concerts. The weather was perfect and and it was fun to see our neighbors again. Photos are on the Gallery page.

Thank You Higgins Beach Inn and Shade Restaurant


A big thank you to Higgins beach Inn and Shade restaurant and their staff for the wonderful BBQ on Monday June 13. This is the third time in 5 years that the Inn has hosted a BBQ for residents of Higgins Beach. Covid prevented this gathering the previous two years. The food included burgers, hot dogs, grilled chicken wings, pasta and potato salad, corn on the cob, strawberry shortcake, ice cream and cookies. Beverages included wine, beer, fruit drink and water. Music was provided by Delta Knights. It was fun to finally be socializing with our neighbors and friends like we normally did pre covid. Photos of the event are on the gallery page.

Wednesday Donuts


The first Wednesday donuts will be June 29. Donuts will be $3 which will include either coffee or water and each additional donut will be $3. People will have a choice to sit at tables inside, sit outside at our picnic tables or at the HB Inn picnic tables or grab and go. Obviously the inside seating could change depending on Covid conditions and any changes would be posted here

July 4th Parade


The July 4th celebration festivities will begin with a parade at 4:00 PM. The Parade theme is Celebrating Freedom in America – thanking first responders and the military. Let your imagination run wild and participate in the parade, costumed up walking the route or on a float and/or decorating your bikes and wagons! As a reminder, the possibilities are abundant when you think about the definition of first responder as being quite broad. It includes any person with specialized training who is among the first to arrive at the scene of an emergency and it typically incudes paramedics, fire fighters, EMT’s, nurses, doctors, and law enforcement officers. The military is also broadly defined and includes active members and veterans of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard and National Guard. Let your creativity flow and honor one of these many people. If you are going to participate in the parade, please click here to fill out a registration form.
