Greetings, Brooks. Here’s hoping we all are surviving the heat wave and the drought.

Many thanks to all who braved the heat and came out for the Meet & Greet held in the Community Park. Many businesses and organizations participated in what is to become an annual event. It’s a great way for newcomers to find out what goes on in our community.

The Unity Area Rotary Club presented Linda Lord with a Paul Harris Fellowship Award for her exemplary public service to the town of Brooks spanning over two decades. Since 2001, Linda has served in various positions, including on the Select Board and Planning Board, as well as volunteering for the Marsh River Theater and the Brooks Recreation Department.
