BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF THE MILLINOCKET MEMORIAL LIBRARY
ORGANIZER: Crow Athletics
EVENT DATE: Dec 09, 2017
The mission statement of the Millinocket Memorial Library is to "...enrich lives by building community, inspiring imaginations, and empowering individuals through lifelong learning."
The Millinocket Marathon & Half was created solely to help out a struggling mill town. The organizers of the race, Crow Athletics, and I believe the Millinocket Memorial Library deserves our support. In 2015, the library was forced to close due to lack of funding. It has since reopened because of donor support, and in 2017 the Friends of Millinocket Memorial Library secured a $250,000 matching grant to help fund an ambitious $1.25 million renovation of the facility. Still, the library needs our help. Your donations will go toward helping the Friends keep the library operating and providing essential services and support the residents of Millinocket and the greater Katahdin region.
Crow Athletics has pledged that all funds raised go directly to the Friends of the Millinocket Memorial Library to help keep their doors open.
