CHERRYFIELD, ME — Earlier this year, Lee Watrous and his volunteers almost single-highhandedly completed the final phase wing of the new Weald Bethel Community Center.

Mission Downeast Campus Facilities and Housing Rehabilitation Manager Scott Shaw worked closely with Mr. Watrous. So, Scott Shaw was surprised a few days ago when Mr. Watrous and his wife visited the Community Center unannounced and not “full of drywall and sawdust,” Scott said.

Here’s the rest of Scott’s message and photo

“Lee Watrous and his wife Gail came to visit and stayed at a local airBnB over the weekend. They also attended a Cherryfield Academy concert and went hiking.

“I told Lee I didn’t recognize him. He wasn’t full of drywall and sawdust! He cleaned up pretty good! I told him I wanted to post a good photo of them on Facebook while he was clean!”
