In June the Aroostook County Fund of Maine granted $2,000 to the Fort Kent Marketing Advisory Committee to develop a brand strategy and implementation plan centered on the concept of "America's First Mile."
Pictured here with the grant check are committee members: Dr. Richard W. Cost, George Dumond, Peter Sirois; and Glen Lamarr.
Aroostook County businesses and individuals established the Aroostook County Fund in 1986 to ensure the county would have local charitable resources to address community issues and challenges. Over the years, the fund has grown to more than $500,000 and the Aroostook County Committee has awarded more than $274,000 in grants.
A statewide organization with offices in Ellsworth, Augusta and Portland, the Maine Community Foundation has been partnering donors and nonprofits to strengthen Maine communities for 25 years. For more information, visit www.mainecf.org or call 1-877-700-6800.
