For two and one-half years a group of Bangor area citizens worked as a cohesive committee planning, organizing and promoting a year-long program in observance of Bangor's 125th Anniversary as an incorporated city. The Anniversary Committee was formed in April 1957 and worked together through the Anniversary Year, 1959. The objectives of the celebration were to focus local, regional and national attention upon Bangor, attract tourists and visitors to our city and instill in our citizens a greater pride in the community. We feel these aims were met through a year's program of events, conventions and daily tourist attractions. However, this would not have been possible without the complete cooperation given the committee by all that were called upon for assistance. These include city and state officials, news media representatives, individuals from every type of business and professional organization , as well as hundreds of civic club members.
