Graffiti Cleanup 

Volunteers hit the streets of downtown Bangor Saturday to try and clean up some of the city’s graffiti.

The folks from &quot:Keep Bangor Beautiful&quot: organized the event.

They say while graffiti isn’t a *huge* problem in Bangor, it does exist…and they want to do their part to keep the downtown area looking good.

Volunteers painted over large areas of graffiti on a support column of the Penobscot River bridge…and also on a retaining wall near the Penobscot Plaza.

Event coordinator Kathy Guerin says it’s important to clean up the graffiti so it doesn’t send a negative message to visitors.
