Elias A. Joseph Award:
Brad Fisher of Vacationland Skydiving
Serving back-to-back years as board chair was not planned, but Brad was able to juggle multiple jobs, multiple private business ventures and countless Chamber committees, events and meetings all with a smile. It’s wonderful to celebrate those who give so much to the Chamber.
Distinguished Community Service:
Brent Burger & Michael Roy or Campbell's True Value, Winlsow
This dynamic duo has spent years addressing the needs of their community. While their professional lives are filled with tremendous success and dedication, it is their personal passion and commitment to those in need that may be even more impressive.
Garvan Donegan of Central Maine Growth Council
Right from the start, Garvan impressed everyone he worked with. It is uncommon to find such a knowledgeable professional at such a young age. His expertise in all things development and planning has been a pleasant asset in the region’s recent resurgence.

Tina has played a pivotal role in our region’s non-profit sector for years. Her professionalism, leadership and sincerity has benefited not just the organizations she’s worked for but all of us in the region.
