It's beginning to look a lot like Winter
It is time to turn our thoughts to all the outdoor activities that are available in Aroostook County in the winter.
Hopefully we will have snow for all the sports that require it and temperatures that will make the ice safe.
Holiday Ligth Parade
The 25th Annual Holiday Light Parade will be December 6, 2014. The parade will begin at UMPI and proceed to North Street.
This will make the lineup safer for all involved.
There will be opportunities to give and receive as Northern Maine Community College will be collecting and passing out books. Catholic Charities will be collecting donations of goods and cash.
Winter is on the way!
Central Aroostook County Glistens in Winter
The winter season changes the look of Aroostook County. The fields become white blankets and the hills become ski moguls.
The winter season brings opportunity to continue enjoying our wonderful area whether snowmobiling, skiing, snowshoeing, skating or taking pictures.
The reflected light night and day makes everything sparkle!

For further information please call the Central Aroostook Chamber of Commerce at 207-764-6561 or email us at email@example.comMy desire for ‘Green’s Corner’ was to tell a story of the people of Presque Isle. In fact, there are many stories within this painting. Each character has something to say, whether it is one of the two ladies about to cross State Street, the boys running up from the skating area at the Presque Isle Stream, trying to leave little brother behind, or the mother and daughter gazing in the F.W. Woolworth’s window at the Christmas tree. I can imagine the little girl leaning in to her mother’s side, hoping for her favorite toy from Santa.” “While Green’s Corner is the focal point of the image, I was attracted to all the store fronts and the signs on both the Main Street and State Street sides of the Klein Block, thus my decision to portray the buildings at the chosen angle. They are a reminder of a time gone by. “I hope that everyone who views this painting can see a part of their own history in it. Enjoy!” ~ Lisa Desjardins
