A little bit of rain did not dampen the spirits of community members who turned out Saturday morning for the 2021 Greater Fort Kent Area Chamber of Commerce Scarecrow Festival parade.

FORT KENT'S HOMETOWN HEROES
The theme of Fort Kent's 2021 Scarecrow Festival business decorating contest is "Hometown Heroes," so we decided to celebrate those who help us help our local communities by contributing to our Ending Hunger Campaign. Acadia FCU staff, members, and other community members who have supported our campaign by buying, selling, or otherwise participating is a HERO to us, because without all of you, we couldn't give back to our communities the way we do!

Our staff took it an extra step by donating non-perishable food items for the Scarecrow Festival display, which we will donate to a local food pantry. The check you see is what we have raised so far in 2021, but our big fundraising push to finish the year is coming soon!

Learn more about the 2021 Scarecrow Festival right here: https://www.facebook.com/fkscarecrowfest

To anyone participating in the festivities this coming weekend, have fun and be safe! 🙂

Just wanted to give a shout out to the Fort Kent Police Department and Customs/Border Patrol for their help with our Scarecrow Festival/UMFK Homecoming parade today. They did an amazing job keeping us safe, leading our parade and helping to direct traffic afterwards. We truly appreciate your help.
