Thanks to a $10,000 grant from the Mass Bay Railroad Enthusiasts, and matching funds from Robert & Martha Holland, Norfolk Southern, and Brooks Preservation Society, the Brooks Station is receiving a new foundation, sills and joists. This is the first phase toward returning trains to Brooks. The station was raised on hydraulics over 8 feet to restore the foundation and joists of the station as well as adding a frost wall.

The Bicycle Coalition of Maine has spent the last two years planning a new event that is set to launch in September 2013. BikeMaine is a 400 mile, 7 day, fully supported bicycle tour of Maine that , in its first year, will begin and end in Orono and will take bicyclists to Dover-Foxcroft, Belfast, Castine, Bar Harbor and Ellsworth. BikeMaine is a rolling community of cyclists and volunteers exploring the best of Maine and supporting host communities along the way. Each year they will explore a different part of Maine. Through BikeMaine, the Coalition seeks to create a bridge between bicycling and sustainable community economic development, where attention to health and wellness -- at work and at home -- can spur community growth, vitality, and economic prosperity. This year the ride will stop in Brooks for one of their rest stops. The riders will be stopping in Brooks on September 9 at around 2:30.
