Check out what came in TODAY!!!!! We are so excited about providing a safer environment for our community on Halloween this year! Make sure you stop by our table on Halloween to pick up your FREE reflective trick or treat bag.
We also have received several calls about Halloween in Lower Village and wanted to pass along some information to everyone.
There is NO rain date for Halloween in the Lower Village
The activity on Halloween in the Lower Village is an organic community event that has been taking place in our community for many years. Meaning this is not an event that is being organized by the Recreation or Fire Rescue Departments. Our involvement as well as others is to help provide the safest environment possible for the youth of the community to enjoy on Halloween. The many trick or treaters would still visit the Lower Village on Halloween if our departments were not involved, so we have chosen to help support our neighbors of the Lower Village that embraces this very unique and wonderful Halloween celebration. In the end our goal is to help everyone have a FUN and SAFE Halloween.

The Gray-New Gloucester Backpack Club is pleased to announce we have been chosen to receive a Drive for Education Program Award from Berlin City for the third consecutive year. Once again this grant give us the financial security we need to stock our food pantry shelves through the end of the school year. The positive impact of this program is far-reaching – affecting the children we serve, the students who volunteer for us, the community members, and our staff as well. Our program is a 100% collaboration of volunteers including students, staff in our five schools, and our parent volunteers. Our pantry is run by the Gray-New Gloucester High School Community Service Club and the EXCEL Program. The students are responsible for taking inventory, unpacking food deliveries, stocking shelves, and making sure over 140 bags of food are packed and ready to go out each week to the five schools in our district (compliments of the district transportation department).| Thank you Berlin City for this generous donation, and to all who work hard throughout the year to make it all happen!
