Camden National Bank Chefs Gala a Smashing Success

Camden National Bank Chefs Gala a Smashing Success

 Four hundred and thirty guests walked the Hollywood Walk of Fame at the 18th Annual Camden National Bank Chefs’ Gala, as over $50,000 in net proceeds will go to the Breast Clinic and Mammogram Scholarships at Maine Coast Memorial Hospital. 

 This popular event sponsored by Camden National Bank in partnership with WLBZ2 was sold out by the end of March even with the additional space made possible by Ray Builders and EBS.  Ray Builders constructed and EBS donated the materials for a portable kitchen to make room for additional guests and provide the Chefs, led by Chip Butterwick, a comfortable working environment to prepare their delectable dishes. 

 Crystal Limousine owner John Partridge donated the use of two limos so guests arrived in style to walk the red carpet.  Atlantic Landscape provided decorations so realistic that guests felt they had been transported to Hollywood

Alpha One-Adaptive Driving Education Fundraiser

Alpha One-Adaptive Driving Education Fundraiser

Alpha One is launching our first fundraising initiative to enhance our Adaptive Driving Education program and we are looking for your help.

This program is one of our oldest, and has been offering driver evaluation, assistive driving technology consultation and driver education and training since the early ‘80s. The ADE Program has helped hundreds of Maine consumers to become licensed drivers and enjoy the freedom of mobility

Our goal is to lower the overall cost of delivering this valuable service to Maine people who want to get back on the road again, by soliciting support from individuals and businesses who share our desire to help others remain independent.

Donations from foundations and individuals will provide for the purchase and adaptation of a new van and the operation of the program over the next five years.

May Baskets filled with Fudge and Memories Go On Sale Today at Senior Center

SENIORS MAKE MAY BASKETS FILLED WITH FUDGE, CHILDHOOD MEMORIES TO RAISE MONEY FOR ARTS & CRAFTS PROGRAM

BANGOR – A handful of women have been busy for months cutting decorative papers to form into hundreds of May Baskets in anticipation for this coming week. These women, some of whom are in their late 80s, have each volunteered countless hours – even taking specialty papers and supplies home so that they could continue cutting and folding during the hours their Senior Center is closed.

Their industrious dedication is driven by their hope of raising lots of funds for the arts & crafts programs they love so much at Hammond Street Senior Center. This week they have been joined by nearly a dozen more members of the Senior Center who have volunteered to make an assortment of homemade fudge with which to fill the baskets. The fruits of their labor go on sale today, Monday, April 25.

Many people ask what the ribbon stands for:  The puzzle pattern on this ribbon reflects the mystery and complexity of autism.  The different colors and shapes represent the diversity of the people and families living with this disorder.  The brightness of the ribbons signals hope-hope through research and in the increasing awareness of people like you.
