September 11 marked the start of 48 hours commemorating the founding of AmeriCorps.
Over 110 AmeriCorps members, Alums, and program staff joined forces to reclaim cross-country trails at Lewiston High School and reclaim a retaining pond on the campus. Thanks to LLBean and other local support, there was water, lunch, eye safety gear, gloves, and lots of comaraderie! View photos through link below.
More than 130 AmeriCorps members and AmeriCorps Alums pledged to serving Maine communities at a special ceremony on September 12.
Maine Supreme Court Justice Leigh Saufley presided over the ceremony at the Capitol in Augusta. AmeriCorps member/Alum Melanie Ramos shared why she returned to serve after 20 years. Ms Ramos was an AmeriCorps member in 1994 and is serving in 2014.
The Maine event was part of a simultaneous, nationwide pledge ceremony that extended from Guam to Hawiaii to Puerto Rico and Maine. Since AmeriCorps' founding in 1994, more than 900,000 Americans have served in every state and territory. Their pledge is to get things done to strengthen communities!
