Hello, Palermo Community!

There is some exciting news this week regarding emergency medical services and our Volunteer Fire Department. You are invited to comment on the proposed new service.

And we have another great food-to-go chicken and dumpling event sponsored by the Grange coming soon!

EMS Service

Here's your invitation to provide written comments. The Palermo Volunteer Fire Department is applying to Maine EMS for a non-transporting license to be able to respond to medical emergencies within the Palermo Volunteer Fire Department response district at the EMT level.

There will be no change to the current way that Palermo townspeople call for 911.

The public is invited to send written comments to Maine EMS at 152 State House Station, Augusta, ME 04333 within 30 days of publication of this notice regarding the proposed application.

Chicken and dumpling drive-up

A public chicken and dumpling with pie drive-up will be held at the Palermo Grange Hall on Saturday, Oct. 17, from 4 to 6 p.m. Each serving is $7. The Grange is located on Branch Mills Road at the Palermo/China line.

Preorders (optional) can be placed from Oct. 10 through Oct. 16 at 5 p.m. by calling Grange Master Ann at 445-2707.

Come satisfy your appetite, and support a worthy organization!

The Grange thanks Lori’s Cafe for generously donating to-go soup containers and Hannaford for graciously providing to-go dessert containers for transport.
