Levant business vying for $5,000 grant

Levant Corner Store needs public votes to win 


LEVANT - Two small Maine businesses are anxiously awaiting to see if wishes do come true. The owners of the Levant Corner Store and My Happy Pace in Old Town are competing to win a $5,000 grant from Intuit's Love Our Local Business Challenge, but they need the community's help to pull it off. 

"Intuit is offering up 15 $5,000 grants to small businesses. We stumbled upon it [the challenge] on Facebook," said Jamie Clark, owner of the Levant Corner Store. "They're granting wishes. They asked you to submit your wish, and they're basing the results on how many people vote for the business and what type of effect the grant would have on local business in the area."

LEVANT - Turkey day may be a couple months away, but that's not stopping a Levant business from celebrating the famous Thanksgiving bird a little early. The great gobbler was the inspiration for this year's corn maze design at Treworgy's family orchards on Union Street, and it's attracting quite a flock of visitors.

"We come up with the theme around the dining room table," explained Robin Pellerin, retail manager at Treworgy's. "It's my parents that started the farm and we run it as a whole family. We sit around the table and come up with a theme usually at the end of the season. It's my uncle that did the maze design."
