Talk about community involvement and generosity! Nicols Brothers Logging, Inc. lends a bridge to the Town of Rumford after the wrath of Irene! As I understand it, there would have been quite a wait for the families in the Swain Road area and beyond before they would have been able to use that part of the road. This affected not only the families in the proximity but also school buses, emergency vehicles, commuters, workers, etc. on a daily basis. Thanks to Jim and Carlene for their quick thinking and caring about the community.
I have received many crafter registrations for the Christmas in the Valley Craft Fair (Dec. 3 at Mountain Valley High School’s Puiia Gymnasium). If you are interested in being a part of the Fair please contact me at the telephone number or email listed at the end of this article.
The Rumford Information Center continues to be a very busy place as the falls are still looking majestic with all the rain we have had the last two weeks or so. We still have many visitors from all over the world (from Germany and Australia as well as many Canadians) and although their destinations are usually the Maine Coast or the White Mountains, many, with the urging of our volunteers, stay and explore the beauty of the River Valley and report that they are glad they decided to spend some time in our area.
Don’t miss your chance to purchase your Stash for Cash tickets ($5 each) before November. They are on sale at the Rumford Information Center and many member businesses. You can win more than once as your name goes back into the pot and can be drawn again on any weekday of the week in November.
If you would like more information on any of the Chamber’s events, call the office at 364-3241 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
