Over 60 and need a ride? To a medical appointment? To run errands? To attend a social event? To attend an exercise class? To attend church?  Or do you know someone who does? AFCI’s N2N (Neighbor-to-Neighbor) Transportation Program can help. Our drivers are eager to be out on the roads again and connecting with you. Simply call AFCI at 207-824-4444 to request a ride (at least three days ahead), leave a message, and we’ll return your call to make arrangements. And if you’re a Bethel library member, we can deliver your books as well.
