Jehovah's Witnesses moving to Augusta due to Civic Center work

Jehovah's Witnesses are planning their annual conventions and an accompanying campaign to invite the public to attend, but in Maine, the gathering will take place in Augusta rather than Portland due to ongoing renovations to the Cumberland County Civic Center.
"Jehovah's Witnesses are currently finalizing the planning of their annual conventions throughout the United Statesm," a press advisory noted. For the last few years, the 9,000 plus who attend the local conventions have used the Civic Center in Portland, but "due to the renovation plans they will be meeting at the Civic Center in Augusta. There will be two three-day conventions.  The first convention will run from Friday, June 21 through Sunday, June 23 and the second will be held the following week starting Friday, June 28.  The theme chosen for this year's conventions is: 'God's Word Is Truth!'" The Witnesses will continue the programs worldwide through the end of December, according to their website. For details, visit http://www.jw.org.
