Benson Beach Pavillion

By Nancy I Beausoleil | Feb 11, 2013

As a day-tripper to your beautiful island, this thought came to me as I read your story about renovation/rebuilding of the beach pavillion. Is it possible for you to start a campaign seeking contributions to help with this project? I know that when I am introducing someone to the island, Benson Beach is always my first stop. I value and respect your community and would love the opportunity to contribute to enhancing this great summer destination, as I believe others would as well. So maybe reaching out to non-islanders, like myself, might be a source of revenue for you.

The Town Beach Pavilion is used 85 days a year - if the weather is nice. If it rains then the pavilion is closed and no one is at the beach. So it seems to me that renovations would be the best for the pavilion. Spruce up and enlarge the bathrooms and showers fix the roof and put some fresh paint on the building. Even though it would be wonderful to have a beautiful new building, we do not need to spend over 1 million on a facility that is used only 85 days a year.
