The New Year at Faith Linking in Action (FLIA) will be very exciting. The Food and Medicine (FAM) and the FLIA boards held their first joint meeting on January 2 to work on joint cooperation plans for 2018. The FLIA Board Meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 16 from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm at the Solidarity Center, 20 Ivers Street in Brewer. The next Convening for all those involved with FLIA will be held on Tuesday, January 30 from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm a the Islamic Center of Maine, 149 Park Street in Orono.
