Luther & Roz Smith: Entrepreneurs
Luther and Roz are entrepreneurs and parents of two children in our school. Currently, they live in Blueberry Hill, one of ICDC’s newest houses.
Getting to this island is always a great story to hear and Luther and Roz’s journey is no different. Roz’s mother moved to Isle au Haut and Roz came to visit as a teen, and then later to help run their food truck business Maine Lobster Lady. (link to http://www.mainelobsterlady.com ) Luther came to the island from the Outer Banks of North Carolina to work as a skilled carpenter on a major new house project. They met, and now raise their family on the island.
Today, they juggle a busy life. In the summer Roz & her mother operate the Maine Lobster Lady food truck next to the Island Store. They do make the best lobster rolls. Luther has a growing business building and renovating homes. Luther also handles maintenance for the ICDC houses. Their children add great spirit and life to our island life.
It is their community spirit that we appreciate. Roz has served on the School Board and in Town government. Luther is the fire chief and has spruced up the station. Last year he lead an effort to get us all new extinguishers! And island only works when everyone wears more than one hat. Roz and Luther have quite a collection!
