Manna Christmas 

BANGOR – Folks who gave donations to Manna Ministries this year will be happy to know that their gift brought some smiles to the area’s needy citizens on Christmas.

More than a thousand people showed up at Manna’s annual Christmas party at the Elk’s Lodge in Bangor.

Kids got to visit with Santa, who showed up with a bagful of toys.

And there was also a hearty meal at the event.

Executive director Bill Rae says this couldn’t have been done without the support of the community.
