The following is a link to an article I read the Bangor, Maine Daily News:
The small central Maine town of Hartland has a chance to win $2,500 in an online contest, to be applied to the construction on their municipal swimming pool. The winner will be the project that receives the most votes. John Clark, the Hartland resident mentioned in the article is my brother-in-law. His hobby is entering contests, and well known in "the sweepstakes community". His license plate reads "I WIN" - and he does: Cars, trips, etc. If he endorses this contest, I think that Hartland has a good chance of winning, but only if they get the votes.
Please vote for this project. (There is a link in the article, but if it doesn't work, use this link: http://www.gatheringswithpurpose.com/).
(Note: Some of you may remember we did a similar thing to try and get an MRI for the Downeast Hospital in Machias. The were close, but there were much bigger towns competing, and they didn't win. Here's a link to the discussion in these forums.)
Thanks! And please forward this message to your friends and relatives.
