Northern Lights Grooming goes mobile

HOLDEN - Business is rolling, in more ways than one, at Northern Lights Grooming. That's because owner Debra Plourde is now going mobile with her dog grooming business.

"Mobile is up and coming and is really the way to go now," Plourde said. "It's convenient for people. It's a lot less stressful on the animal and it's quicker than being in a shop."

Touch-a-Truck returns to area

Fundraiser helps send kids with disabilities to camp

BANGOR - The parking lot at the Cole Transportation Museum will be packed next week with excavators, race trucks, safety vehicles and dozens of other cool big rigs for the second annual Touch-A-Truck event. It's a fundraiser that was started last year as way to help send kids with disabilities to Camp CaPella in Holden.

"My 14-year-old daughter with down syndrome goes to camp there and loves it," said Michelle Harmon, event organizer. "It costs $1,500 per week, per child, for overnight camp. They have a nursing staff 24/7, a cook, office staff and counselors who are just awesome and do what needs to be done. But they're on a shoe string and everything we can do to help, we should."
