New Hope for Women will hold an open house at its new 18 Belvedere Road location in Damariscotta on Friday, March 27 from 2:30-4:30 p.m. The public is invited to stop in to meet agency staff, to hear more about services, and to enjoy light hors d’oeuvres and wine. Adding to the fun will be drawings for gift cards from local merchants, such as Rising Tide Co-op and Sherman’s Maine Coast Bookshop.
