Martin Luther King Jr. Day Service Project Grants Awarded

Recently the Maine Commission for Community Service challenged communities across Maine to develop volunteer service projects that unite community sectors in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Our challenge was met with an overwhelming response of 26 grant applications. We are happy to announce, the Maine Commission for Community Service, awarded 16 organizations $500 grants to implement Martin Luther King Day of Service Projects.
We encourage local citizens to contact a project in their community and take part in the Martin Luther King Day of Service. This special day of service is an important way for Maine’s people to experience the significance of service, volunteerism and collaboration amongst their neighbors. These service projects will not only impact their communities, but celebrate the legacy of Dr. King and his commitment to service, non-violence, and diversity.

We're giving away 25 pairs of tickets to the show through Facebook, and all of the winners will also have access to soundcheck, and a special pre-party with The Brew!!

Audiences have been onto The Brew for quite some time. And the more sold-out venues they play, the more fans fall under their spell. Maybe it's the band's distinctive "brew" of indie rock sound. Maybe it's the way they bring the past to the present in bold, unexpected ways.
