BANGOR – The Hammond Street Senior Center in Bangor is going to be closing down for a while.
Executive director Kathy Bernier says the center will close on October 30th and remain closed until they sell their Hammond Street building.
The center has been trying for months to sell its downtown building in order to relocate to a more convenient location with better parking. Bernier says it was a difficult decision but a shortage of funds led the board of directors to close the center.
The annual campaign, sponsorships, grants, and municipal participation fell far short from budgeted projections. Bernier says she is sure the center will grow and flourish once the relocation is complete.
