    Today we’re bringing you to the debut of a new monthly storytelling event in Bangor. “Queen City Cellar Tellers” is organized by Renee Johnson and Chris Roberts. Roberts is the owner of the Juice Cellar where the event will be held on the 3rd Friday evening of each month. Each month the program will have a different theme and highlight a local nonprofit. At the debut on June 19th the theme was “best friends” and the spotlight was on the Bangor Humane Society.

    For more information and/or to sign up to tell a story at one of the upcoming events, email info@thejuicecellar.com
