Downtown Countdown New Year's Eve Photos

An estimated 3000 people attended the Downtown Countdown Celebration in downtown Bangor on New Year's Eve.  In addition to all the music, dancing and activities that took place all evening long, WLBZ 2 took photos of some of the revelers in Westmarket Square.  You can check out those photos here:  Downtown Bangor New Year's Eve Photos.

If you have some photos from the evening you'd like to share, you can upload them to the same gallery. 

ARTIST TOM BRENNAN AT THE BANGOR PUBLIC LIBRARY

Artist Tom Brennan has taken the Maine State logo, “Maine: Life As It Should Be” and given it a little twist in his exhibit January 2011 at the Bangor Public Library. Titled “Maine Life As It Is”, the more than three dozen original paintings and drawings will be on display in the Bangor Public Library’s Lecture Hall throughout the month of January.
A lobsterman seining in a dory, a homeless woman feeding the birds, a child’s first snow covered pine tree: these and many more lifelike portraits of real Maine people are the body of this exhibit. You may recognize someone you know in this show because everyone is real and “of” Maine.
Tom Brennan’s work has become a fixture of the International Festival, Calais’ Canadian-American celebration that takes place each August.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day Service Project Grants Awarded

Recently the Maine Commission for Community Service challenged communities across Maine to develop volunteer service projects that unite community sectors in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Our challenge was met with an overwhelming response of 26 grant applications. We are happy to announce, the Maine Commission for Community Service, awarded 16 organizations $500 grants to implement Martin Luther King Day of Service Projects.
We encourage local citizens to contact a project in their community and take part in the Martin Luther King Day of Service. This special day of service is an important way for Maine’s people to experience the significance of service, volunteerism and collaboration amongst their neighbors. These service projects will not only impact their communities, but celebrate the legacy of Dr. King and his commitment to service, non-violence, and diversity.
