From the Town Office:

Another reminder that the 2017 Property Taxes are due on Dec. 31, 2017. Interest starts accruing on Jan. 1, 2018. We really do not need to be reminded. It is the dreaded Tax season., for some of us.

Sympathy

Sympathy to the Family and friends of Helen Waltz who passed recently. Helen had a Camp right beside the Legion Hall with Mavor Clark where she could be found in the Summer.,right in Unity.  She had recently been moved to Bangor to be near family. She loved the activities at the Legion with family and friends. She was a 60 year Auxiliary member. I will miss her. She preferred to be called Auntie. Many of us will miss her for sure.

Condolences

Our Sincere Condolences to the Nickerson Family in Jackson on the recent passing of Don Nickerson, Jr. Thinking of all.
