Last week, our local NBC affiliate, WCSH6, ran a report on money saving tips and asked viewers for suggestions on other tips. Well, of course Frank sent an email to the television station and got a response from the on air newscaster, Cindy Williams. He discussed the purchase of our new television and how we were able to get a great deal on it by doing our research. Frank & Cindy emailed back and forth and she invited us down to the studio in Portland to be interviewed for an upcoming segment.
Despite the horrible weather (incredible wind and torrential rain) we made the trek down to Portland to the TV studio. It was a fun experience. Cindy could not have been lovlier! By the way, this was also an excuse for us to hit Christmas Tree Shops!! We trudged our way back up to LimeRock Inn in Rockland and came to home to two very excited dogs. They are not used to us being gone all day. We will let you know when the segment airs.
Last night was the monthy business after hours for the Penobscot Regional Chamber of Commerce. It’s a chance for chamber members to get together to network and catch up with each other. This month it was hosted jointly by Kno-Wal Lin and Penquis CAP. Penquis CAP is the local community action program that assists people in need through all types of programs including fuel assistance, victim service, health & housing. Last year, Frank and I (mostly Frank) helped organize a fundraiser for the Keep ME Warm fuel assistance fund. Well, last night we were presented with the Above & Beyond Award from Penquis CAP for our efforts. We had no idea this was happening and we were very honored to receive it.
