Fort Fairfield Celebrations of Lights

Fort Fairfield Quality of Place Council Encourages Enlightenment in Community During Celebration of Lights!

(Fort Fairfield) – The Fort Fairfield Quality of Place Council is seeking to spark some excitement in the community for the Holidays with an electrifying new project – the Fort Fairfield Celebration of Lights!  This new, community-wide initiative is designed to bring more light to some of the darkest days of the year by encouraging businesses and homeowners to create a more festive atmosphere in town by decorating their storefronts and homes.

“We’ve been meeting with business and community leaders for months now to refine our plans to bring more buzz to Main Street,” explained Phil Christensen, President of the Quality of Place Council.  “We’ve been drawing up plans to illuminate some areas downtown and working with business owners to help incentivize them to join in the fun.  The response has been terrific, and despite some challenges with this early winter weather, we are excited to put the next phase of the plan into action.”

Over the past few weeks, the Fort Fairfield Quality of Place Council has allocated several thousand dollars to replace some of the decorations that were destroyed when the Community Bandstand collapsed and to invest in additional lights to be used on a variety of downtown businesses and landmarks.  Those lights will be on nightly for all to enjoy from December 2nd until January 2nd from 4 to 10pm.  Now, the Council is encouraging property owners to join in the fun.

Any address is Fort Fairfield is eligible to participate in the Celebration of Lights Home Decorating Competition.  A top-secret panel of judges will be traveling throughout the community from 5 to 10pm on Saturday December 15th to take in the sights (and hopefully some sounds!) of participating homes to select the top three holiday light displays.  Those homeowners will win valuable gift cards and prizes from a variety of local businesses.  To register, all homeowners have to do is email ffqualityplace@yahoo.com with their name, address and phone number by midnight December 14th.  Not computer savvy?  Feel free and contact Tim Goff at 939-2440 and provide that same info and you'll be entered to win.  

“This is a great chance for the young, and the young at heart, to enjoy a tradition that many members of the Council fondly recall – driving through neighborhoods and oohing and aahing at the dazzling lights glistening on a blanket of fresh fallen snow,” added Christensen.  “It is our hope that by encouraging our residents to create some beautiful displays, we can create new traditions for everyone to enjoy.”

For more information on the program, or to get involved, please contact Phil Christensen at 227-1644 or email ffqualityplace@yahoo.com

Newcomers find success at 35th Annual Agri-Business Trade Fair

ShowPano

No matter how you slice it, the 35th annual Northern Maine Agri-Business Trade Fair at The Forum in Presque Isle was a tremendous success. More than 3500 people poured into the Trade Fair over the course of the weekend, the bulk of those on Saturday as the aisles were filled with folks looking to get their hands on a wide variety of products and services on display.



More than 60 vendors showed off the latest tools and technology, while there were informative demonstrations and talks held throughout the course of the two-day event. There were many new faces, both in the crowd and displaying their products on the show floor, and it was two of these newcomers who brought home ‘Best in Show’ honors.

Mike’s and Sons, exhibiting in their first trade show ever, displayed no rookie jitters as they more than held their own with their colorful and inviting display of lawn and garden equipment. While the judges had difficulty determining a winner among several of the large dealers, ultimately the inviting, friendly and knowledgeable staff at Mike’s helped them claim the victory as the best large display in the building.

The judges were equally as torn trying to pick the best small booth display at the Trade Fair. The panel of judges had to re-examine the entries they felt had the best booths, and ultimately picked Penner Lumber/Advantage Thermal as the ‘Best in Show’ in the small booth category at the show. While Penner Lumber had displayed at the Trade Fair in the past with other vendors, this was the first year they’d gone solo and built their own exhibit showing off their innovative insulation products.

With exhibitors coming from every corner of the County and beyond, the ultimate winner was the local economy, thanks to an influx of foot traffic and increased awareness about the many area businesses serving the needs of their friends and neighbors. Plans are already being made to enhance next year’s show by the Fort Fairfield Chamber of Commerce, which has organized the event since its inception. Start making your plans now as the 36th annual Agri-Business Trade Fair will be held April 2nd & 3rd in 2016.
