Bangor auction to benefit storm-ravaged sister city

BANGOR — Peace through Interamerican Community Action, sponsor of Bangor Clean Clothes Campaign and the Bangor-Carasque Sister City Project, will hold its 12th annual silent auction 6:30-9 tonight at John Bapst Memorial High School.

Proceeds will support Bangor’s sister city, Carasque, and hurricane relief efforts in El Salvador.

Approximately 55,000 people have lost their homes in El Salvador as a result of Hurricane Mitch.

Carasque was spared the worst of the devastation but has lost its bean crop, the staple of the farming community.
