NEW GLOUCESTER — At an awards dinner to be held Wednesday, Aug. 13, the Maine Wood Products Association will present its “Pine Tree Award” to Thos. Moser of Auburn and a new “Pine Cone Award” to W.A. Mitchell Fine Furniture of Farmington, both family owned and operated furniture companies.

The Pine Cone Award is given to a company with 15 or fewer employees while the Pine Tree Award is given to a company with more than 15 employees. This is the first year that the award has been given in two categories.
