Antiques appraisal

Dirigo Pines resident Ann Hathaway shows an antique chair to licensed auctioneer Bruce Buxton during Rosscare’s Lifeline Antiques Appraisal fundraising event on June 18. A total of $2,885 was raised. The funds will be used to ensure that aging adults and disabled residents have access to Lifeline medical alert service, allowing many in the community to remain independent and safe in their homes. Pictured (from left) are Ann Hathaway; Cindy Smith, manager of Rosscare’s Lifeline program; and Bruce Buxton, licensed auctioneer.
