This Month's Challenge

As you know, the celebration of the Commission's 25th anniversary and Maine AmeriCorps' 25th year of serving our state is on October 11, 2019.

So, for this month's quiz the questions are ....

1. How many AmeriCorps members served in Maine the first year?

2. What 3 AmeriCorps programs are not current grantees?

3. Which Commissioner lived the furthest from Augusta?

A note about what may appear to be a mistake: the Commissioners were sworn in October 1994 and made the first grants right after. Thus, the first full year of work was calendar 1995. For that reason, the reference source for answers is
