Recently Senator Claxton was honored to present a Legislative Sentiment to the Friends of the New Gloucester Public Library for receiving the Spirit of America Foundation Award, a tribute presented to Maine municipalities, individuals and organizations for commendable community service. The Friends of NG Library has been an amazing community contributor by raising funds for the library including book and bake sales, sponsoring several library programs including park passes for the library patrons and delivery of books to the homebound, and so much more. Senator Claxton was pleased to greet them and recognize their significant contributions to the community of New Gloucester. Senator Claxton and Representative Arata gave a tour of the Senate and House chambers.
