BAR HARBOR — Healthy Acadia is hosting a spring session of our Responsible Beverage Server and Seller Trainings in June. The trainings help staff prevent violations of liquor laws and serve alcohol safely, with an emphasis on preventing underage and high-risk drinking.
“Soon the summer season will be in full swing, and this is the opportune time for businesses to ensure that their new and veteran employees are up to speed on alcohol selling laws and best practices,” said Nikki Fox, community health coordinator at Healthy Acadia.
Veteran instructor Frank Lyons leads the trainings and teaches attendees how to ensure that safe business practices are implemented within the workplace.
The off-premise training is for employees of retail and liquor stores. It will be held on Tuesday, June 2, from 12-4:30 p.m. at Ellsworth City Hall. On-premise trainings are for employees of restaurants and bars. The upcoming trainings will take place Wednesday, June 3, from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Ellsworth City Hall and Thursday, June 4, from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Machias Savings Bank in Bar Harbor.
