Sprucing up community
BANGOR — Young people from the local Modem Woodmen of America Youth Service Club recently worked together to beautify the community. Through the organization’s Community Beautification Program, the youth cleaned up the litter and painted brand-new picnic tables at Stillwater Park off Howard Street.
The Bangor club is one of some 800 clubs nationwide that provide young Modern Woodmen members with opportunities to volunteer, be patriotic, learn new skills, make friends and have fun. Club members donate more than 300,000 hours of volunteer service each year.
Participating in the Community Beautification Program is just one way club members help make their communities better places to live.
To get involved with the local club, contact Eric Fairbrother at 944-9875 or EridiEnterprise@hotmail.com.
Founded in 1883 as a fraternal benefit society, Modem Woodmen of America offers financial services and member benefits to individuals and families throughout the United States.
