Dale Midgley (pictured above) has been chosen as the Maine American Legion’s Legionnaire of the Year. At a ceremony last month, he was presented with the award, and also a Certificate of Achievement from Post #19. Dale is the Service Officer and Adjutant for the Post. He serves on a number of State Committees as well, including the High School Oratorical Scholarship Program. Each year the Maine Past State Commanders Club honors a Maine Legionnaire with this award for exceptional leadership within their post and community. It is the highest award given by the state organization.

The tennis courts at the High School will be named in honor of Roland Cote. At its August 11 meeting, the School Committee accepted a $10,000 donation made by the Cote family through the Sanford Legacy Foundation in exchange for the lifetime naming rights to the courts. Roland has been a longtime advocate for tennis in Sanford.

Congratulations, thanks, and best wishes to Todd Levesque on his retirement from the Sanford Fire Department after 39 years of service.

Have you listened to Rick Stanley’s radio show Chamber Talk lately? On August 2, he interviewed Mousam Way Land Trust President Bud Johnston about the organization’s latest projects. In the latest episode, Rick interviewed Owen and OJ Martin about the history of bowling in New England, and what leagues are forming for the fall. You can listen to both episodes here: https://www.sanfordmainechamber.org/chamber-talk.

Sanford Regional Technical Center graduates Samantha Hebert and Conrad Nicely (pictured below, with Rick Stanley) were each presented with a $1,000 Faith Ballenger Memorial Scholarship by the Sanford-Springvale Chamber of Commerce to help further their education. Both will be attending Husson University  in the fall. The Chamber would like to acknowledge The Academy of Business at SRTC, where high school juniors and seniors can earn college credit while participating in the business program. The winners were selected by the Chamber scholarship committee through mock business plans submitted by the students. Funds for the scholarships are from Chamber fundraising events including the golf tournament and raffle.
