BANGOR, Maine — The Odd Fellows of Maine will be packing up Maine Potatoes for Maine People from noon to 1 p.m. on Nov. 17, at the Sears parking lot at the Bangor Mall.
Grand Master Jerry Farnham and his assistant will pick up the potatoes at Rockabema Lodge in Houlton and bring them to Bangor.
Last year, Odd Fellows gathered and delivered 9,600 pounds of Maine potatoes and trucked them to 11 different destinations from Sebago to Stonington. Eleven lodges in Maine sent trucks to Bangor to pick up the potatoes for distribution to food pantries, churches, packed Thanksgiving dinners and similar needs.
Refreshments will be available on Nov. 17.
