RED CROSS HOSTS OPEN HOUSE WEDNESDAY AT NEW BANGOR FACILITY

Bangor -

BANGOR – The Pine Tree Chapter of the American Red Cross will hold an open house at its new downtown Bangor facility at 73 Hammond Street from 5-8 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 5.

Earlier this year, the Penobscot County Commissioners invited the Pine Tree Chapter to occupy part of the former Penobscot County District Court building after the court moved to its own new Bangor facility. The Commissioners provided the Chapter with 4,500 square feet of conference and teaching space, staff offices, and storage rooms. The result is easier public access to Red Cross disaster response and prevention services. In recognition of their efforts, the Penobscot County Commissioners received the Chapter’s 2010 Extra Mile award.
