12th Annual Claddagh Celebration Honoring George N. Campbell, Jr.

Maine Irish Heritage Center
5:00 pm

George N. Campbell, Jr. grew up on a farm in Brewer, Maine, learning the lessons of hard work and the importance of community. As an 11-year-old he saw the family farm burn to the ground and witnessed the community uniting to rebuild the homestead.

He traces his Irish roots through his great-grandfather who emigrated from Ireland to New Brunswick. His grandfather came to Brewer and worked as a street sweeper, possibly laying the ground for George’s future work in transportation.

His strong work ethic and strategic leadership skills have been on display during his decades-long professional career leading municipalities, state agencies and several notable private entities. He served as Mayor of Portland and led fundraising efforts for numerous community organizations and the University of
Southern Maine Foundation.

Currently a partner and owner of Treadwell Franklin Infrastructure Capital and Sewall, George lives in Augusta with his wife Dawn Stiles. They celebrate the bounty of family with children, stepchildren, grandchildren and one very spoiled dog named Murphy.

Our Annual Celtic Christmas Fair will be held November 9, 2019. This will be the tenth year we have combined forces with Mercy Hospital, St. Luke’s, State Street Church and  75 State Street to hold holiday fairs on the same day, resulting in the State Street Holiday Stroll. Every year the event has grown and we look forward to an even larger turnout in 2019.

The Celtic Christmas Fair features a light luncheon menu, beverages, baked goods, a raffle table, live musical entertainment, as well as a performance by the Stillson School of Irish Dance. We draw crowds to the Celtic Christmas Fair for the beautiful artistry as well as the luncheon and lively entertainment. We hope you can join us for what has become a wonderful holiday tradition.
