Our Maine Street's Aroostook Issue 7 : Winter 2011 - Page 6

o ur Thoughts We welcome 2011 with an issue full of local stories that focus on what makes The County a great place to live and visit. We start in Presque Isle with the Community Players, a group responsible for putting on countless performances through their many years from plays to musicals for county audiences, all for the love of a good show. From Presque Isle we sprint to Caribou to get the low down on twenty-five years of the annual Turkey Trot 5k put on by the Harrigan Family, which has become a traditional event for several local families. Onward to Fort Fairfield, we get the story behind one of the town’s most interesting structures, from its past to the present and what the future may hold for this long-standing building. Northern Prosthetics may just be one of The County’s best kept secrets. The services they provide are state-of-the-art and go a long way in helping to improve the quality of life for residents in all of our communities. Follow us to Fort Kent, as we take a look at the iconic Aroostook County event that is the Can-Am dog sled races. Finally, we return to Central Aroostook for a walk down memory lane. We are always looking to learn new things about our favorite part of Maine from our readers, so if you know of a story you would like to see here or have one to tell yourself, don’t hesitate to contact us. Enjoy your winter Aroostook and we will see you in April. 4 WINTER 2011
