BANGOR – The Literacy Volunteers of Bangor held its seventh annual Literacy Tea Sunday afternoon at John Bapst Memorial High School.
More than 300 people filled the school’s auditorium for the fundraiser.
Guests got to sit at tables designed after popular children’s books. While sipping their tea, they heard from speakers, including those who have benefited from the organization as well as Camden children’s author Liza Gardner Walsh.
“We pair tutors and students up to help the students reach their goal, so maybe people who struggled through high school and want to get a high school diploma or just increase their reading, writing, speaking skills for English,” said Kris Currier, president of the organization’s board of directors. “We support adults in our community. We’re
happy to do so and this event helps us do that.”
