Our Town Belfast shared Angus King's post.

You may have heard, Senator King came by yesterday, met with several people, checked in at some businesses, and re-connected with his old friend, and our new mayor, Samantha Paradis.

This is me in the governor's office with the Mayor of Belfast--twenty years ago! Samantha Paradis is now a nurse at Waldo County General Hospital and was just elected Mayor after knocking on 2500 doors. But when this picture was taken, she was a second grader in St. Agatha in the St. John valley, a cousin of my old friends Judy and Ross Paradis. Maine really is a big small town (with very long streets) and it's connections like this which reach across generations that make it so special. Can't remember what we were looking at, but it sure seems interesting. The amazing thing is that while Samantha has grown up, I haven't aged a bit. Yeah, right.

Wow, the town Christmas tree went up in Post Office Square today, and she's sure to inspire the holiday spirit! We can't wait to flip the switch at the Belfast Tree Lighting December 2nd.

Thank you to Alan Holmes and Holmes Florist and Greenhouse for donating this beautiful tree from their blueberry field in Belmont, to Dan Miller and Belmont Boatworks for manning the crane, to the City of Belfast Highway Department for moving the base, to the City of Belfast Recreation Department and Our Town Belfast volunteers for stringing lights, and to many others.

The Annual Tree Lighting is truly a community effort and affair! The town will gather at 4:30pm, December 2nd, for cookies, cocoa, caroling, and a visit from Santa before the tree is lit at 5pm. Bring your family, friends, and neighbors to celebrate holiday magic in Belfast!

Our Town Belfast is proud to have had three central figures in our organization honored at the Belfast Area Chamber of Commerce’s Awards dinner last weekend.

Former executive director, Breanna Pinkham Bebb, was recognized with the Belfast Chamber Appreciation Award as “someone who works behind the scenes, capturing so much of what makes Belfast special and unique.” Bre has been the driving force behind Our Town Belfast for the last 5 years, establishing and expanding important programs, such as, the Annual Auction & Gala, Bridge Dinner, and Street Party; building strong relationships with downtown businesses; and spreading the word about Our Town Belfast to the greater community. Under Bre’s leadership, our fledgling organization has matured and flourished.

Former Mayor, current City Councilor, and founding Our Town Belfast volunteer, Mike Hurley, was recognized for having made "an outstanding positive impact in Waldo County during (his) lifetime, either by a single event or on a continuous basis."

Board member and City Councilor, Mary Mortier, was recognized as Community Volunteer of the Year for her outstanding service as an unpaid volunteer in Waldo County. In addition, to her work with Our Town Belfast, Mary contributes her time and energy to the Belfast Rotary.

Our Town Belfast would like to extend a huge “thank you” to these three individuals for their tireless efforts to better our community and serve its’ citizenry.

Our Town Belfast shared Broke Neck Santa's post.

Our 20+ volunteers put the "elf" in Belfast yesterday and made quick work of hand-tying 140 over-sized holiday bows at the Belfast Boathouse. These beautiful red velvet bows will decorate wreaths on the lamp posts downtown in just a few short weeks.

You can get in on bringing the magic to Belfast this holiday season by sponsoring a wreath downtown. Follow the link below to learn more.

We'll be making big holiday bows to decorate downtown wreaths next Monday, November 13th at the Belfast Boathouse.

Anyone is welcome to drop in from 10am to 1pm, learn how to complete this fun holiday craft, and help make bows to decorate downtown this winter! We'll provide all the necessary tools and instructions. And, we'll be bringing extra ribbon from previous years for those who would like to make a bow to decorate their wreath at home!

Every November, Our Town Belfast sees to the hanging of 60+ locally-made real evergreen wreaths on the old fashioned lamp posts downtown. We purchase velvety red ribbon and coordinate volunteers to hand-tie more than 100 bows to decorate the wreaths. Having a festive and traditional holiday feel in our historic downtown makes shopping, dining, and attending community events all the merrier in Belfast.

Waldo County General Hospital has stepped forward to be our major holiday decorating sponsor in 2017! But, there's still a need for individuals and businesses to help us spread the holiday cheer around Belfast by sponsoring an individual wreath downtown. Each sponsored wreath will be displayed with a "gift tag" printed with your name, business, or dedication.

If you would like to sponsor a wreath, please follow the link below:

Waldo County Woodshed has found a dump truck to purchase for $11,000. They have $6000 already, so another $5,000 needs to be raised in order to purchase the truck.

"It will enable us to move wood from site to site according to need without having to borrow a local truck. Big Yella will help out our neighbors across Waldo County. Won't you help with a donation big or small?"
