Bangor Maine AllCare Minutes March 13 2018

Attendees: Nate Shea, Jeff Graham, Carol Bodnar, Larry Dansinger

Bangor Public Library event: Tuesday, March 13th, 6PM. Discussed and decided to show the 40 min version of “Fix It,” since we have only one presenter to date (David Green). We will confirm the reservation and advertise in the Weekly (Larry) Peace and Justice Center (Larry) and the BDN (Jeff). Nate will see if he can spread the news to UMaine Nursing School. Plan is for Nate to moderate and we will check to make sure we have a screen, DVD player and/or WiFi with connections to play the movie from YouTube if necessary.
