BANGOR, Maine — Temperatures approached a blissful 50 degrees Saturday, but with freezing rain and sleet in the forecast for Sunday, Bangor Rotary Club would like to inform people planning to attend its “Music off Broadway” performance that the show will go on regardless of weather.
“We would like patrons to know that if they are concerned about travel conditions on Sunday, they are welcome to use their Sunday tickets at [Saturday night’s] performance,” Rotarian Bob Potts said in an email Saturday.
Performances are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday at Bangor High School.
Proceeds from the show this year will benefit, Sarah’s House, a home away from home at the former Fox Run Furniture Galleries building for cancer patients undergoing treatment at Eastern Maine Medical Center’s CancerCare of Maine facilities, which are less than 3 miles away in Brewer. The club has pledged to raise $100,000 toward that effort.
The cost of the renovation was estimated at $275,000, but the actual cost will be lower because much of the work is being done by volunteers and much of the construction material likely will be donated, according to a previously published report.
