Congratulations to Bangor Savings Bank for supporting the exciting new hands-on project based learning center at the Hamilton site.  We are so lucky to have in our area one of the most innovative schools in the nation.  It's high time that our children be given a chance to reclaim their maritime heritage and take advantage of our easy access to the ocean resource.
