BDN, WVII highlight Larson’s lifetime of giving to UMaine Machias

The Bangor Daily News shared a University of Maine news release highlighting the many and continued contributions of Rich and Elsie Larson to the University of Maine at Machias and to Machias area communities. The Larsons were celebrated at a public reception on Sept. 27 in Machias following the transfer of the deed to their current home to the University of Maine Foundation. WVII (Channel 7) talked with Rich Larson about the donation. “Without students, colleges and universities do not exist, so we’re hoping that the university can enroll and utilize those funds,” he said. “We’re optimistic being able to work with the University of Maine helping each other across the region and in Washington County’s rural areas.”
