Four Non-Profits Get Grants from Bangor Rotary 

The Bangor Rotary Club handed out 18-thousand dollars in grants Tuesday. The money is going to four different groups.–The Acadia Hospital for their Challenge Day program, that prevents bullying and violence in schools:–The Challenger Learning Center for their science program:–The Maine Discovery Museum, for a youth group they are starting and:–The American Red Cross. Shannon Cox says they’re starting a program to help young people and seniors come up with emergency plans and kits. “In a year when economic events affected all of us, the Rotary Club’s generosity is most welcome, and it couldn’t have come at a better time and to also remember together we will be saving lives.”The money was raised through the Rotary’s annual theater production called Music Off Broadway.
