Cumberland County 4-H members Caleb and Katie McGrath-Holmquist and Amber, Amanda and Austin Holmes are raising money to buy three market hogs and three market lambs from the Cumberland Fair 4-H Livestock Auction on Wednesday Sept. 27, at the Cumberland Fairgrounds. The livestock will be donated to the Gray and New Gloucester Food Pantries.
The two families are longtime members of the Cumberland County 4-H Sheep Club and the 4-H Swiners Club who raise market lambs and hogs to be sold annually at the fair’s 4-H auction. This year, in addition to raising and auctioning their own animals, they are participating in a self-designed community service project to benefit both 4-H’ers and their local food pantries.
They hope to raise $3,600 to buy the animals. They will be selling donated water, soda and lemonade at the Gray Blueberry Festival on Saturday Aug. 12, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Pennell Municipal Complex, 24 Main St., Gray.
Donations of any amount can be sent to GNG 4-H Food Pantry Project, P.O. Box 1012, Gray, Maine 04039. Checks can be made payable to: GNG 4-H Food Pantry Project.
The New Gloucester Economic Committee announces a new initiative: the recognition of local businesses by featuring them on a Business of the Month display at the Town Hall. The display area is located on a new bulletin board situated on the wall to the right as you enter the building.
The aim of the display is to recognize businesses that contribute to the local economy and the overall quality of life of the town in terms of services offered and employment opportunities. The committee is especially interested in showcasing homegrown businesses that sell locally grown or produced wares. If you are interested in being featured, or would like more information, contact Town Planner Will Johnston at 926-4126 ext. 4 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

The plan from Brakey is just a concept at this stage, but he told the Legislature’s Taxation Committee that it targets 47 tax programs that he termed “corporate welfare,” costing the state between $425 million and $448 million over two years. He would use the savings to eliminate Maine’s corporate income tax and lower income taxes. Keep reading
In 2016, Welcome, Neighbor volunteers Kathleen Potter, Penny Hilton, Beth Blakeman-Pohl and Beth Birch assemble packets of materials to be given out to newcomers to town.
Local businesses and organizations can obtain free publicity by participating in Welcome, Neighbor, a grassroots community volunteer project. It was developed to welcome new residents to New Gloucester by providing information that may assist in their transition.
Only New Gloucester-based businesses, organizations and community groups will have the opportunity to include items, such as business cards, brochures or other promotional materials, in the 100 packets to be assembled. There’s no charge or obligation to participate.
Drop off 100-count of your item to the town office by Friday, March 31 to have your materials included. For more information, call Beth at 650-5228.
