WELCOME TO AGING IN PLACE
Town of CUMBERLAND, MAINE!
BIG PROJECT DAY A BIG SUCCESS!
Aging in Place Cumberland’s volunteers—26 strong—spent all morning and part of the afternoon on a beautiful Saturday helping their neighbors prepare for winter. The volunteers, including a contingent from White Pines Church, installed storm doors, took piles of brush and debris to the dump, installed a handrail, removed air conditioners, moved lawn furniture, carried oversized discarded objects to the curb for the town’s bulky item pickup week, cut back gardens, and performed other chores at 13 Cumberland residences. The amazingly well-organized event—thanks to the hard work of AIP volunteer Teri Maloney-Kelly assisted by Joyce Baughan who put it all together—made us proud of our community. Thank you all!
