ELLSWORTH — The Hancock County Trustees of Public Reservations, governing board of Woodlawn Museum, Gardens & Park, held its annual meeting and dinner on Jan. 25, at the Black House in Ellsworth.

At the meeting, the trustees welcomed two new members and one returning member to the board.

Chelsea Sawyer of Ellsworth and Robert Worrell of Omaha, Neb., and Sorrento were seated as Woodlawn’s newest trustees with Michael Marino of Surry returning, after several years, for another term.

Commenting on the selection of Sawyer, Executive Director Joshua Torrance said, “Chelsea joins the board with a direct connection to Woodlawn and our community. She has generously served as a Woodlawn volunteer in many capacities, including as a member of the Ellsworth Antiques Show Committee.”

Sawyer is currently a branch relationship manager at Bar Harbor Bank & Trust, a member of the Ellsworth Noontime Rotary Club and serves as assistant treasurer on the Ellsworth High School Alumni Association.

Regarding Worrell’s selection, Torrance said, “Bob has a long history of board involvement with organizations in Maine and Nebraska. His unique perspective from a 35-year career with the Union Pacific Railroad is a welcome addition.”

On the return of Marino as trustee, Torrance said, “The board is thrilled to once again work with Michael. His financial planning acumen will be essential in helping Woodlawn continue its growth.”

Marino is a community leader with service as past president of the Ellsworth Rotary Club as well as serving as past president of the Risk Management Association, Maine Chapter. He also has vast experience as an instructor of financial training workshops for banks and area organizations.

Marino has more than 25 years of banking experience and is currently the executive vice president and a senior consultant at M&M Consulting of Springfield, Mass.
