Supper thanks

I would like to thank the people from St. Theresa Church for the supper they gave me for help with the taxes on my home. It was very thoughtful of them to do this. I do appreciate what they did for me. It means a lot that they cared about us.

I find there are people who care about people here. So again, thank you for what you’ve done.

First-class volunteers

On behalf of the board of trustees of the Maine Winter Sports Center, I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to the volunteers from the greater Fort Kent region for their outstanding efforts during the recent Biathlon World Cup event at the 10th Mountain Center in Fort Kent.

Without exception, the volunteers exhibited the utmost in professionalism, creativity, commitment, passion and caring for the community that has now become the standard that others around the globe will be measured by.

As a very proud fan at the World Cup festivities, I witnessed firsthand the energy of the crowds, the strong sense of community, incredible performances by world-class athletes, smiling faces on fans of all ages, and an organizational structure that is second to none in the world.

The citizens of Maine will be forever grateful for the volunteers’ fine work and they should be extremely proud of the lifelong impact they are having on the lives of thousands of Maine people.

Brian N. Hamel, chairman of the board, Maine Winter Sports Center


Who would have thought that hundreds of people would turn out for a benefit supper on Dec. 7, 2003, during the worst blizzard in ages?

Well, it happened to our family!

Our five adult children had planned the dinner and decided not to cancel. They traveled from Massachusetts, Connecticut and New York to make it a reality.

The kindness of neighbors and friends also made it happen – from volunteer chefs to the road commissioner who cleared the parking lot at the school where the dinner was held.

My battle with multiple myeloma has re-enforced the fact that people are generous and kind. I have been humbled by their goodness. Meals have been coming regularly and the mail brings cards almost daily. Our family has been blessed, and I thank God for his work in our lives through the actions of these wonderful people.
