Thanks to support from Hight Family of Dealerships, Kyes Carpenter Insurance, and 97 other businesses and individuals, we reached our $10,000 fundraising goal! The total amount raised is $11,815.

In 10 years we have:

  • Upgraded pocket parks, sidewalks, crosswalks, lamp posts, gardens, parking areas, street trees, business facades, and connections to nearby trails

  • Restored the Bernard Langlais Skowhegan Indian sculpture through partnership with the Chamber

  • Organized community building events like Holiday Stroll, River Fest, and the Maple Festival

  • Supported local farms at the downtown market and led wellness initiatives for small businesses

  • Connected Skowhegan to statewide promotional networks to attract visitors

To start the next decade, we will:

  • Attract and develop new business and support existing ones with new incentive programs

  • Create and promote a downtown trail of Bernard Langlais sculptures

  • Renew the business facade improvement program

  • Plant an educational garden at the Skowhegan Indian sculpture viewing area

  • Organize vibrant annual events, gardening efforts, and other ongoing projects
