The Red Barn, a popular Augusta restaurant, recently received a form letter from the Attorney General’s office, to stop their charitable work. The law requires charities to be licensed.The Red Barn, along with others have raised more than $635,000 for various charitable causes over the past three years.

Maine’s Attorney General Janet Mills had stopped into the restaurant over the weekend to apologize in person.

Laura Benedict, the owner of the Red Barn, tells the Kennebec Journal, that she will start a charitable arm and continue to raise money for good causes.

Benedict further explains the situation in a post on the Red Barn’s website.
