Continued from Home Page.
Tisbury Manor presented Community Service Awards to Jacob Van Meter and Eric Reeves on Sunday, June 14th. These men filed a suit against the State of Maine for violating their rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act. Maine did not have facilities for young adults with disabilities and these two gentlemen had to live in nursing homes. Their action resulted in the creation of a new facility in Bangor called Knights Court, specifically designed for young adults with disabilities. Jacob and Eric were presented with their DAR Community Service Award Certificates and pins at the reception held in the community room of Mayo Hospital in Dover-Foxcroft.
