Providing innovative banking solutions while actively supporting Maine’s diverse communities.
Every Friday afternoon, Maine Public broadcasts a Connect News Pod over YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and on mainepublic.org. Each segment will is hosted by a community spokesperson who shares Maine Public News of each specific week.
