On June 23rd, the Presque Isle Rotary Club recognized four individuals: Clinton Deschene, Jan Lucas, Michael MacPherson, and Scott Violette.

The 13th Annual Aroostook River Fun Run is May 21st with proceeds divided between the Aroostook Veterans Alliance and the Aroostook House of Comfort. This year’s event is being dedicated to Janet Durgin, who was a founding leader of both organizations.

“From the moment the Aroostook House of Comfort hospice team got involved we felt such a load lifted from our shoulders. So many people were involved in so many helpful ways. We are still so moved and touched by the kindness and compassion of everyone involved.” – Lillian Goughan
