You are invited to participate in the HOPE Festival that will be held on Saturday, April 25th from 11 AM to 4 PM at the University of Maine in Orono.
The festival is free because many volunteers, including the performers, donate their time, energy and talent to make this special day possible. Volunteers are needed, especially to set up on Saturday, April 25th from 7:00 – 10:00 a.m., throughout the day on Saturday, and to clean up. Email or call the Center (942-9343) if you can help before the Festival, or on the day itself.
The great team of volunteers who are planning this year’s festival are working as well on ways to strengthen outreach to schools and churches. You can read about these exciting new initiatives in the Center’s newsletter, and we will send along information to you about special projects and workshops to involve children and members of the religious community leading up to the HOPE Festival.
Rob Shetterly has designed a new poster for us this year, which you may color and post in your community. Let us know if you can help promote HOPE in your neighborhood, and we will send you as many posters as you can use.
