Looking for Women Work and Community Participants - Past and Present

Maine Centers for Women, Work and Community (formerly Displaced Homemakers) has provided free training, advocacy and assistance to Maine's women for 30 years. They help people across Maine in four program areas: career building, business startup, money management and leadership development.

Throughout this year, WWC is hosting 30th Celebrations in key locations around the state. On April 30th, the Bangor Region is having a party. If you are from the region and have participated and/or supported WWC, you are invited to attend. The hope is to get in contact with and bring together as many participants and supporters as possible.

The 30th Celebration is 4-6pm in the Campus Ballroom on the University College Bangor, ME. A $7 donation is suggested at the door--and this includes refreshments and non-alcoholic beverages. Pie will be available for a donation of $5 a slice, $30 for the whole pie--with proceeds going to WWC's programs in the Bangor region. Two gift baskets will also be raffled off.

If you are planning to attend, please RSVP by April 22, 2009 by emailing Jane Searles, Regional Manager at searles@maine.edu or calling Diana Campbell at 1-207-262-7840.

Also--if you are still in contact with people from WWC workshops you attended, please feel free to pass along this information.

Hope to see you there!--Janyce
