Patti’s April 14 “Inside New Gloucester” Column

Take steps to relieve hunger

Hopefully Sunday, May 1, will be a beautiful day for a walk. Even if it isn’t, participants in the annual CROP Walk will be taking a 6.2-mile stroll around some New Gloucester roads anyway.

Register now to walk or to sponsor a walker. To help the cause of relieving hunger here in New Gloucester and around the world, go to Click on the appropriate icon on the U.S. map or enter the 04260 zip code.

The registration time is 10:30 a.m., and the walk starts at 10:45 a.m. The route will start and finish at the First Congregational Church, 19 Gloucester Hill Road, New Gloucester. For more information, call the church office at 926-3260.
