April’s presentation focused on the Impact Team for Hancock County which was formed a year ago and whose focus is to make an “Impact” through supporting and volunteering community and agency efforts to help make a difference in the lives of fellow citizens. The goal is to grow the team from its current 18 members to from both the Blue Hill and Maine Coast Hospital employees to 36 members which will include community members. Contact April if you are interested in joining the Impact Team and making a difference while supporting the local communities.
