Congratulations goes out to Tony Theriault our Public Works Director for the Town of Fort Kent. Tony was recently recognized for a commendable job on the town's levee system by the Army Corps of Engineers. Of the 71 projects across Maine, Massachussetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Connecticut, 61 projects are levee systems, they noted Fort Kent's system as the very best and the only one to receive the highest acceptable ratings in all categories. Job well done Tony!

So, it seems like there are no comments yet for this one posted this morning. Do any of you care to guess where this may be?


The Greater Fort Kent Area Chamber of Commerce, with the help of WFKTV4, invited its members to participate in a beach ball toss video - a little fun in the summer sun, cutting loose in Maine's Upper St. John Valley.

What fun! Thank you all who participated in our game for this weekend. We hope you've enjoyed our game.

It is amazing how many businesses there are in the Greater Fort Kent area - and some quite unique ones at that! And we weren't even able to hit them all (can you imagine - we did this for four days - we would be doing this for two weeks at least if we hit them all!) How lucky we are to have such hard-working dedicated people to work in our communities and businesses and patrons to support these businesses and keep our local economy in check.

We look forward to having our businesses parade you next year for Scarecrow Festival/UMFK Homecoming rather than have you parade the businesses on Facebook. We hope you join us next year for our 2021 Scarecrow Festival/UMFK Homecoming weekend. Like this page to stay updated on dates and future events.

Our last picture for this game: This past week, The Dude stopped in for some bling - decided on this ring and was shown this antique cash register on display which rings - kaching. What fun! Where can you get the ring with the bling and here kaching?

The Dude is checking out the decor in this salon while waiting for a cut (all that conditioning is making his straw start to turn back to grass and is growing, we think). Where did we stop for a haircut?

If you are driving around, it's always good to run some errands while you are at it. Winter is coming and it is smart ot get your house ready. Popped in here to do just that. Where are we?

Some of the places we went to left The Dude with wanting a better phone, so we stopped here to check out their selection. Where are we in this picture?
