Fort Fairfield Celebrations of Lights

Fort Fairfield Quality of Place Council Encourages Enlightenment in Community During Celebration of Lights!

(Fort Fairfield) – The Fort Fairfield Quality of Place Council is seeking to spark some excitement in the community for the Holidays with an electrifying new project – the Fort Fairfield Celebration of Lights!  This new, community-wide initiative is designed to bring more light to some of the darkest days of the year by encouraging businesses and homeowners to create a more festive atmosphere in town by decorating their storefronts and homes.

“We’ve been meeting with business and community leaders for months now to refine our plans to bring more buzz to Main Street,” explained Phil Christensen, President of the Quality of Place Council.  “We’ve been drawing up plans to illuminate some areas downtown and working with business owners to help incentivize them to join in the fun.  The response has been terrific, and despite some challenges with this early winter weather, we are excited to put the next phase of the plan into action.”

Over the past few weeks, the Fort Fairfield Quality of Place Council has allocated several thousand dollars to replace some of the decorations that were destroyed when the Community Bandstand collapsed and to invest in additional lights to be used on a variety of downtown businesses and landmarks.  Those lights will be on nightly for all to enjoy from December 2nd until January 2nd from 4 to 10pm.  Now, the Council is encouraging property owners to join in the fun.

Any address is Fort Fairfield is eligible to participate in the Celebration of Lights Home Decorating Competition.  A top-secret panel of judges will be traveling throughout the community from 5 to 10pm on Saturday December 15th to take in the sights (and hopefully some sounds!) of participating homes to select the top three holiday light displays.  Those homeowners will win valuable gift cards and prizes from a variety of local businesses.  To register, all homeowners have to do is email ffqualityplace@yahoo.com with their name, address and phone number by midnight December 14th.  Not computer savvy?  Feel free and contact Tim Goff at 939-2440 and provide that same info and you'll be entered to win.  

“This is a great chance for the young, and the young at heart, to enjoy a tradition that many members of the Council fondly recall – driving through neighborhoods and oohing and aahing at the dazzling lights glistening on a blanket of fresh fallen snow,” added Christensen.  “It is our hope that by encouraging our residents to create some beautiful displays, we can create new traditions for everyone to enjoy.”

For more information on the program, or to get involved, please contact Phil Christensen at 227-1644 or email ffqualityplace@yahoo.com

Getting older doesn’t mean your ability to drive safely has been compromised, but changes people experience as a result of aging can affect driving skills over time.  As people age their eyesight and hearing can begin to fade, their reaction times can slow and muscle strength weaken, and suddenly tasks that seemed second nature for their entire adult lives, such as driving, can become much more difficult, even dangerous. 

The good news is many of these obstacles for older drivers can be overcome, through education, changing behaviors and habits, and through the use of improved vehicle technology.  To help sharpen the driving skills of drivers 50 and older, Cary Medical Center, Pines Health Services and the Fort Fairfield Chamber of Commerce have teamed together to bring the vast resources of AAA to Aroostook County for a first-of-its-kind, free driver education and engagement event.

“With many folks living longer, more active lives, people are also driving well into their retirement years,” stated Patrick Moody, Manager of Public Affairs for AAA of Northern New England.  “While a driver’s license is a privilege, it is also a lifeline for maintaining independence for older adults, especially in rural areas where access to public transportation is more limited, and where people are sometimes required to travel greater distances to attend appointments, obtain services or get groceries.  That is why we are so excited to bring these valuable and potentially life-saving resources to people in northern Maine in an effort to help them operate their vehicle safely as they age.”

The AAA Senior Driver Expo at the Fort Fairfield Community Center will be held on May 15th from 9a to 12:00p.  The Expo will feature demonstrations, presentations, vision and hearing screenings and interactive displays.  Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap, and Patty Morneault, Director of the Maine Bureau of Motor Vehicles will be among the featured presenters on hand to provide information and meet with folks. Following the Expo at 12:30p, there will be a screening of the film “Old People Driving”.  The short documentary film is about two men in their nineties who are nearing driving retirement.  With today’s seniors outliving their ability to drive safely by 7 to 10 years on average, this film will help remind motorists that they need to plan for driving retirement.

The Senior Driver Expo will bring together numerous organizations to provide information about their resources for older drivers, programs they provide for seniors, alternative transportation options, classes for seniors, smart vehicle features for older drivers, brake reaction timers and distracted driving simulators, and AAA’s nationally recognized Roadwise Driver class for those 55 and older and more at no cost to participants.
