Grand Lake Stream

Town News

It was good to sit with Fire Chief Gary Santerre recently and he wanted to share what is happening at the Department. The new building addition is nearly complete and he hopes to have an “Open House” soon so everyone can see the positive changes made.  Periodically fire trucks are tested for their pumping capacity and other capabilities. The Grand Lake Stream truck passed with flying colors. The test was performed in Princeton and several other departments also participated. A special thanks is extended to Scott Cooper who has donated all new LED lights and fixtures for inside the new building. On October 25 there will be a “mock emergence” held at the department as part of a training exercise and the Woodland Mill will also be a participant. Many thanks to the volunteers that help make the department a successful part of the community.

A reminder that the Pine Tree Store new hours are 7am to 7 pm. I stopped in and enjoyed friendly conversation with others as we had our coffee around the table.  A reminder that  October 12, 2016 will be the last Wednesday this year that the Town Recycling Center will be open. Saturdays will continue to be open as usual.
