Good Things Happening Down East

As we start a new year, there’s always hope for fresh starts and new beginnings. It’s rather like starting a new school year or a new semester - clean starts give us encouragement that our lives can and will be better! After the recovery from Hurricane Florence, this “2019 new beginning” is especially refreshing.

So, we’ve decided we need to share good news Down East! So here’s our new beginning as we spread some good news!!

Lookout Grocery reopened yesterday! For many folks Down East, this was great news to their ears!! This grocery store is owned by the Mark and Janet Eakes. Congratulations Lookout Grocery!


Budsin Electric Boats, located in Marshallberg, posted a pic of one of their boats now enjoying it’s new home in Amsterdam!! Tom Hesselink owns and operates Budsin Electric Boats. The canvas top was manufactured by Coastal Canvas of Straits, owned by Michael and Joyce Sasser.
