Bucksport Training for Alcohol Sellers and Servers

BUCKSPORT — A state-certified training session for Hancock County businesses that sell or serve alcohol is planned later this month to help better equip retailers, restaurants, caterers and other licensees to identify and prevent violations of liquor laws.


The training will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 27, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Jewett School Community Center, 66 Bridge St. in Bucksport. It is open to businesses with on- and off-premise alcohol licenses. Participants must pre-register by contacting Mary Jane Bush at 469-6682. The cost is $20 per person.

Instructor Frank Lyons is a 29-year law enforcement veteran who spent most of his career as a liquor enforcement officer and trainer for the Maine Department of Public Safety. Participants will learn about drinking laws and how best to identify minors and visibly intoxicated people and deal with them. The training often leads to reduced insurance rates and will help reduce the risk of making costly and/or tragic unlawful sales.

The training is sponsored through a collaboration of the Hancock County Underage Drinking Task Force and Healthy Maine Partnerships in Hancock County: Bucksport Bay Healthy Communities, Healthy Acadia, Healthy Peninsula and Union River Healthy Communities.
