Machias Savings Bank celebrates elephants Sept. 21
Rockland — The staff of Machias Saving Bank in Rockland is celebrating National Elephant Appreciation Day on Friday, Sept. 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
A representative of Hope Elephants will be on-hand to discuss the unique rehabilitation and education outreach center that will soon be home to Rosie and Opal, two elephants in need of special care. The goal of Hope Elephants’ educational program is to inspire visitors to act on their experience with the two Asian elephants and find their own path to participate in wildlife conservation.
The staff at Machias Savings Bank is celebrating the officially recognized national holiday a day early so their customers can also participate in the fun.
Refreshments, free gifts, Hope Elephants merchandise and information on how to help the project will be available. For more information, call 596-5864.
