We extend to York’s of Houlton a great deal of thanks for letting us hold this event for the past three years at the dealership.  Their generosity got this event off on a really good footing and our new venue is just up the road a bit and just as easy to get to.  Also thanks to Joyce Transue who did a great job of bringing all the food and drinks for the night.  These efforts were more than appreciated by all of us,” said Elizabeth Dulin, Health Services Foundation,” Executive Director.  .
