Weekend events cancelled, delayed due to approaching storm

BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) --- Several major events that were supposed to be taking place around the state are facing cancellation and delays due to the approaching snow storm. Here are just a few:

The memorial service for longtime Maine Game Warden Greg Sanborn has been moved from Saturday to Sunday in Vassalboro. Major Sanborn passed away earlier this week following a year-long battle with cancer. His memorial service was supposed to take place on Saturday at the Maine Criminal Justice Academy. Visiting hours will now take place on Sunday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.  and from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Major Sanborn's funeral will take place on Monday at the academy.

The Curran Homestead's Ice Harvest in Orrington has also been moved. It was supposed to take place on Saturday at Field's Pond to teach visitors about the labor that went into properly storing food in the nineteenth century. The event will now be taking place on Saturday February 16.

The Polar Plunge to benefit Camp CaPella and Camp Sunshine in Dedham has also been pushed back. Dozens of people were getting ready to jump into Phillips Lake in Dedham to benefit the two camps, which are for children battling disabilities and life-threatening illnesses. The plunge will now take place on February 16.

One big event still going on despite the storm is the 'Father Daughter Valentine's Dance' in Bangor. The city's department of parks and recreation is still planning to hold the dance at the Bangor Civic Center Friday night at 6:30 p.m.

We want to mention if you have an event coming up in the coming days, please keep NEWS CENTER in mind. We'll have closing and cancellations up as the storm moves through. You can call us at 1-800-244-6306.
