Old May Tradition Staying Alive in Bangor
An old tradition is being kept alive in Bangor. The Hammond Street Senior Center is selling May baskets. Members made the baskets and the fudge is made at the center, too. It’s a fun tradition that used to be done by school kids. ” Someone would run up to the door, ring the door bell, or knock on the door, leave the May basket and then run. The girl would come to the door and say, oh who left that basket and then see the boy hiding or running, not too fast either, and he gets a kiss,” explained Kathy Bernier, executive director of the Hammond Street Senior Center. For $3 you get a basket and two pieces of fudge. You can get the baskets at the senior center.
