2024 Annual Town Report

Richard Morin

This year's Town Report is respectfully dedicated to Richard F. Morin, who passed away December 29, 2023.


Born in 1942, Morin grew up in Topsham. He and his wife Glenna moved to Bowdoinham in 1980, beginning their life-long "project," restoring the Anson P.M. Given Farm, and he immediately started decades of service to his adopted town.


Morin was a planning board member for nearly 20 years, serving as its chairperson for a decade. He was a veteran member of Bowdoinham's Finance Committee, worked on two comprehensive plans, was a member of the Bowdoinham Historical Society and was "always on call" as a local ballot clerk.


He was a Captain in the US Air Force during the Vietnam war, a dedicated husband, father, and grandfather. A career engineer, and a retiree from Bath Iron Works, he was always most happy caring for his herds of “beef critters" and vegetable gardens.


The Town of Bowdoinham will ever be grateful for his dedication and service to our community as well as our country.


The 2024 Annual Town Report is now available at the Town Office.
