PORTLAND, Maine -- Don’t forget, Sundays on the Boulevard starts this Sunday, May 4, 2014!

The road will be closed to cars on Sundays from May 4 through November 9, 9:00 AM – 4:00PM, from Vannah Avenue to Payson Park.

To kick off the first Sunday, city officials, including several city councilors and city manager Mark Rees, will join Portland Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Committee for a 6.5 mile bike tour of the city to review bike infrastructure that has been incorporated over the last few years. The group will start at City Hall at 9:00AM and arrive by 11:00AM at Baxter Boulevard.

Prom Tuxedo Renters Support Manna Ministries with Second Annual Food Drive

PROM TUXEDO RENTERS SUPPORT MANNA MINISTRIES WITH SECOND ANNUAL FOOD DRIVE

The Henry’s Bridal Boutique and Formal Wear will rent any in-stock tuxedo for $99 to prom-goers who donate non-perishable food items as part of their Second Annual Prom Tuxedo Rental Food Drive.  David Lincoln, The Henry’s Manager, reasons, “We own our inventory of tuxedos so can offer the discount while helping people in our community.  We have always donated to the local high schools’ various fund raisers and other programs. Last year we decided to hold a food drive to coincide with the prom tuxedo rentals and the response was overwhelmingly positive. Overall, it seems to be a good way for us to give additional help to local families while the prom kids get the satisfaction of knowing they have helped their fellow man.”
