The Rusty Hinges is a midcoast-based band that plays an ecelectic mix of acoustic music from folk and oldies to pop and rock, bluegrass and country to songs of the sea. The band includes guitar, mandolin, dobro, fiddle and cello as well as vocal harmony and the occasional harmonica.
Broad Bay Congregational United Church of Christ started as a house church in the kitchen of Carol and Don Hakkila. The church soon moved to the Waldoboro Grange Hall, where it was located for more than a decade. In 2002, members of the church voted to buy what had most recently been the First Baptist Church. Since that purchase, the congregation has restored the 1875 Hook & Hastings organ, replaced the roof, refurbished the sanctuary and is nearing groundbreaking for a $750,000-plus project that will help restore and renew parts of the building, including the foundation, with an emphasis on safety, accessibility and flexibility. The congregation, led for the past 15 years by Rev. Nancy Duncan, is active in supporting, working with, and opening the church doors to many other local groups.
