As completion of the new Cross Insurance Center in Bangor nears, the old saying of, '...build it and they will come,' becomes substantiated. We are all in for a treat when the doors are finally opened forever and a day.

I still run into those that just can't seem to let go of the old Bangor Auditorium arguing that it still has a lot of life left to it. I must disagree. The Bangor Auditorium has long outlived it usefulness as a center for entertainment and various other events--it's falling apart.

I, too, get a little sentimental thinking back to countless events that my family and I have attended over the years. It's a little sad to say goodbye, but once I got a sneek peek of the new Cross Insurance Center I was completely sold.
