The donation was announced at a dinner during the Maine Fraternal Order of Eagles State Convention in Brewer, on June 9, 2018. All of us at MBCC are so grateful to the members of the New Gloucester Eagles, who work hard to raise funds for MBCC every year. Two of our volunteers attended the dinner and were so pleased to meet many of the New Gloucester Eagles members.
We would also like to thank Mark Cable, head of fundraising for Twist and Shoot, who was not present for the photo.
