A Message from CAFAM

Hello to our Maine communities:

We hope you are all safe and well. Along with everyone, we have been following the news closely, staying at home, and taking this pandemic a day at a time. We’ve also been trying to help our neighbors and are overwhelmed by the dedication of our local essential workers in healthcare, first responders, grocery workers, educators, and everyone keeping us safe and healthy.

As a volunteer organization, we have not been able to maintain our usual activity level in recent weeks, but please know we are still here as a resource and will respond to any inquiries. We will be back soon with event planning for 2020-21 and as always, trying our best to bring our cultural communities together! Now more than ever, we have been reflecting on what is wonderful about Maine, and the cultural connections that will continue to help us thrive.

Jennifer DeCristoforo – CAFAM President
