35th Annual Founder's Day and classic car exhibit

            The 35th annual Founder’s Day to support the Hamlin Library and Museum in Paris, Maine will be held Saturday July 20, 2013.
            The showpiece of the charity event is The Bahre Collection of antique and Classic cars.  The collection, housed at the birthplace of Hannibal Hamlin, Abraham Lincoln’s first vice-president, is open once a year to the public at the Founder’s Day event.
            The collection of over fifty vehicles includes one of the world’s finest assemblages of Packards.  The Packard collection features Dietrich V-windshield body styles and LeBaron V-windshield body styles on the Packard 12 chassis for 1932-34, the one-off front-wheel-drive prototype sedan, a 1906 Model S touring car and other specialty Packards.

Dead River Donated to Community Kitchen

Dead River Donated to Community Kitchen

The Progress Center, located in Norway, is pleased to be the recipient of a $150 donation from Dead River to support the Oxford Hills Community Table.  The generous contribution of Dead River will benefit many as we continue to help provide food security within the greater Oxford Hills region.  

Kristin Benedix, Executive Director for the Progress Center said, “We want to thank Dead River for recognizing not only the need within the greater Oxford Hills community, but also for their willingness to help us in our effort to provide free meals for our friends and neighbors through the Oxford Hills Community Table.  Working together we can make a difference in the lives of many.”
