Love, the Bus farewell party and fundraiser

LINCOLNVILLE — Three young men from Lincolnville, and their bus “Chartreuse”, are ready to depart for Los Angeles and begin a three-month “Adventure for Good”. After six months of development and construction, have transformed an old school bus and created a web TV show that will follow their trip. Love, the Bus (the name of their project) will follow “the Boys” this summer, as they put themselves on the line, completing challenges to raise money for local youth causes.

On Tuesday, July 5, the Boys are inviting the public to a farewell party hosted at the Whales Tooth Pub in Lincolnville Beach from 5 to 9 p.m. There will be an opportunity to meet the bus, enjoy a gourmet barbecue and celebrate the beginning of this splendid journey. All proceeds raised from drink and food sales will be contributed directly towards youth causes across the country.
