The Festival of Trees

The Festival of Trees - a breathtaking display of creativity, community togetherness and the spirit of giving. The Festival of Trees celebrates the joys of the holiday season and supports the Holiday Lighting Committee in their effort to Light Up Dover.
Come see over 20 trees, uniquely decorated by talented individuals and business from the local community. Each tree will be part of the silent auction so you have a chance to leave the event with a tree, already decorated and ready for you to start your holiday off in a unique way. Come stroll among the trees while you enjoy the live entertainment, make a wish with Santa and enjoy hot cocoa and tasty treats.

COME BACK TO WHERE IT ALL STARTED
WINTERFEST 2011
FEBRUARY 18-26
Join us this February for Winterfest as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first Polaris test trip into the Allagash. Several Polaris officials will be on hand to mark this historic event. Anyone with any brand of antique/vintage sled is are encouraged to attend the celebration to mark what was probably the first group snowmobile trip of significance in the State of Maine and beginning of snowmobiling in the State as we know it. 50 years ago 7 men set out on a weeklong trip and a reace against dog teams to Chamberlain, the dog teams could not finish and were rescued by the sledders near Churchhill Lake. The 7 men went on and completed the trip and two of the original sleds from that trip will be on display.

Family Legal Services, PC is holding a free seminar at Noble High School in North Berwick on November 21 to educate people about bankruptcy. With the economy in rough shape, more peple than ever are finding themselves in a situation where they don;t know which way to turn. We are hoping to educate people about an option that it available to them, and give them the knowledge to determine whether it is the right one for them.
