Teens Who Care

Teens Who Care

We are very proud of our young people in the State of Maine and we need your help to find teens who are doing good work in our communities. Too often we hear about all of the “bad things” teens are doing. We want to make sure that people know there are teens in our state who are doing “good work” and making a difference.

We are looking for Teens who are volunteering in their communities. We will be recognizing individual teens and teens who are working together as groups.  One individual or group will be highlighted each month on WCSH 6 and WLBZ 2. Each teen recognized will receive a $2,000 scholarship to the college of their choice. Groups will be given a $2,000 grant to be awarded to the non-profit they are helping.

Please help us find the teens and their inspirational stories to share around the state. Just go to our website and click Teens Who Care for an on-line form. No deadline.

Scarborough Community Chamber Will Publish New Community Map

The Scarborough Community Chamber is pleased to announce that sales for its upcoming community map are now underway. The 5,000 maps are on target to print this fall, and will be distributed in and around the Chamber service area.
 
The full-color, glossy community map will feature a street-level community map showing local points of interest - schools, parks, water features, landmarks, tourist attractions, etc. - and county or regional map(s) showing primary and secondary roads and major points of interest. Depending on space, the community map may also include a concise community profile, which highlights local events; important phone numbers; listings for community organizations, shops and restaurants, entertainment and cultural venues; and information about the Chamber to create a useful resource guide for tourists and current residents and businesses.
 
Advertising in the Scarborough community map has unrivaled advantages.
