Representatives of Bangor Savings Bank presented a check for $5,000 to a members of the downtown business group Our Town Belfast Sept. 23

Larraine Brown of Our Town Belfast said the bank’s donation is among the largest the group has received.

Our Town Belfast was created earlier this year by the Belfast Downtown Business Group to lead the city’s participation in the Maine Downtown Network, a younger sibling to the Main Street Maine program. The program takes as its central premise that a healthy downtown is the key to a healthy city. Belfast was accepted this year.

Dawn Place, coastal area manager for Bangor Savings Bank, said the bank had been a supporter of the Maine Downtown Network’s parent organization, Maine Development Foundation.

“And Belfast is our town,” she said.
