Great Bay Services April 2021 Newsletter

 
April 2021
 
Service Spotlight
We miss our friends in the community - and they miss us!
 
The staff at the Durham Public Library created personalized activity books for our members, with some help from local kids. It was part of a monthly community service program the library does with young adults, in grade five and up.
 
The books contain puzzles, stories, and other fun items to keep us busy.
 
Help Wanted
Great Bay Services began advocating for disability rights in 1956 with the production of Help Wanted. The film began the movement to end the national the state institution system.
 
 
Community Matters More, and More
Thank you Bangor Savings Bank and everyone who voted for us in the Community Matters More campaign. Because of you, we received $3,000 for our programs.
 
Come to the poker room at The Brook on April 22-28 and support GBS. The Brook donates 35% of all casino gaming proceeds to NH charities.
