$87,350 Gift to Benefit Elderly and Children

BUCKSPORT — Children and the elderly will benefit from an $87,350 bequest from the Charles W. Sawyer Jr. Marital Trust.


The Bucksport Town Council accepted the gift on behalf of the Bucksport Bay Healthy Communities Coalition at a meeting Sept. 24.

A letter to Coalition Director Mary Jane Bush from estate lawyer Richard LeBlanc briefly explained the bequest.

“As you may know, Mr. Sawyer and his late wife, Barbara, tended to be very low-key and private about their charitable giving; and neither expressed any desire for recognition of their generosity,” it read.
