Yay! You're here! We've got an incredible story to tell you...
GOOD NEWS from "BAD LITTLE FALLS"
Maybe you've heard... that for the past TEN YEARS, the wildly-motivated, all-volunteer Beehive Design Collective has created immensely popular, awe-inspiring, collaborative, and meticulously-crafted oversize posters about the urgent issues of our times… all with engaging, incredibly intricate and educational, black & white cartoons of plants and animals!
But what you might not know is that there is a whole other dimension to our work... that in the effort to dedicate ourselves to being useful to both GLOBAL and LOCAL struggles, we've also been on an amazing adventure to respectfully restore, invigorate and support the small rural community where we are based in Eastern Maine... if you're a fan of warm fuzzy feelings... this story is for you!
Hopefully watching the video above will give you a good glimpse of what we're up to!
Friends and neighbors from near and far... we need YOU to Kickstart the 6th annual BLACKFLY BALL!
Held at the historic Machias Valley Grange & Cultural Center at the height of Eastern Maine's Wild Blueberry Festival, the annual Blackfly Ball is a riotous celebration of community and history that attracts hundreds of folks from across the continent to a magical night of booty-shakin’ bliss by the banks of Bad Little Falls park!
With many dozens of volunteers scheduled to lend their labor to our continuing restoration efforts this August, we’re fundraising to make physical improvements of wheelchair accessibility for the Grange, refurbish the beautiful-but-under-utilized dance floor deck surrounded by raging waterfalls at the center of town, and to support the over 90 musicians who's talent make the night unforgettably magical! We need your support to make this Blackfly Ball the best night of the year for all of our friends and neighbors Downeast!
YOU’RE INVITED on August 20th to celebrate this amazing story of restoration and revival with us, AND to receive fabulous gifts of gratitude in each of our pledge packages! We're celebrating by sharing OUR ENTIRE COLLECTION OF 21 BEEHIVE POSTERS, complete with their accompanying storybook narratives, as well as a special LIMITED RUN COLOR POSTER (exclusively for our Kickstarter backers), for pledges of $100, including shipping! Check it out... there's all sorts of great packages offered for different pledge amounts!
We hope you’ll consider supporting our hardworkin' creative efforts... and allow us to shower you with goodies in return! Many thanks from all of us Bees!
