Come celebrate the start of the 2017 riding season with Penobscot Region NEMBA.

We will be having a Spaghetti Dinner and showing Red Bull Media House’s Rad Company along with a short independent film called SHIFT. The good people at VisionCare of Maine are letting us use their Optic’s Theatre to show these films and our friends at Coffee Hound Coffee Bar are dishing out the spread of food. We will have spaghetti with meat sauce, salad and garlic bread. For you non-carnivore types we will offer a vegetarian option.

At the PR NEMBA table you will have your chance to buy some sweet PR NEMBA schwag like Trucker Hats and Tech T-Shirts that will display Our New Logo! We did a limited run on these items so it will be on a first come basis. We will also have a raffle for prizes.

Dinner is $10 for Adults and $7 for kid’s 12 and under. Coffee Hound will have fancy coffee drinks and desserts for sale. Proceeds will support the continuing work of PR NEMBA on all of our trails. The movies are free to those participating in the dinner event. Space is limited and will be on a first come basis as well. We will do our best to accommodate everyone we can. We hope to see many of you there!
