A happy anniversary



To the Editor:

On Thursday, Aug. 9, Acadia Family Center celebrated our 30th year of operation and our 40th year since our inception as the MDI Drug and Alcohol Group.

We wish to thank all who attended that evening for joining us in the summer unveiling our new addition and freshly landscaped grounds. It was also a great opportunity to help people learn about the services we provide and to meet our staff, board members, and several major supporters that we are so proud of and grateful to.

We would especially like to the thank all the people who helped: board members who brought all the supplies, everyone who helped set up, bringing in fresh cut flowers, and especially the Bar Harbor Hannaford and their front end manager, Evelyn Lindsey. The store made substantial donations of wonderful, healthy food, and have been terrific in supporting past events as well. We greatly appreciate their support and generosity.

AFC is proud to offer treatment and prevention education services for substance use and mental health disorders for MDI and neighboring communities.

Dan Johnson,

Executive Director
