Moody’s Diner

Now, ninety years later, we are very pleased to have served over a million people in our motel and diner. Moody’s Diner is an official participant in the 2019 ArtWalk.Moody Pie will be $2.99/slice from 4-7pm on June 8th during the ArtWalk.

Music Scholarship

Westbrook High School – Don and Barbara Doane Music Scholarship

This is a wonderful way to honor someone who has made an impact on the world of music education. After both of them are going their memory lives on with this scholarship.

Don Doane (1934-2015) was, in the words of one of his former students, the “best musician Maine has ever seen.” This designated fund honoring Don and his wife Barbara (1931-2015) supports a graduating senior from Westbrook High School seeking post-secondary study, with preference given to students pursuing music as a major or minor field of study.
