Abstract

A collection of brief articles focusing on activity in central Maine. First, a discussion of the economic robustness of the region despite the pressures of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Waterville is highlighted as particularly successful thanks to the influence of entities such as Colby and Thomas Colleges, the Kennebec Valley Chamber of Commerce, and the Maine Technology Institute; the struggles of organizations such as Delta Ambulance are also noted. Next, Thomas College President Laurie Lachance discusses plans to reopen the campus safely for the approaching fall semester. Next, a brief mention of Maine Department of Transportation work being done on Route 9 in Gardiner and West Gardiner by Pike Industries, Inc. Finally, a discussion of two mergers of financial institutions: Connected Credit Union merging with Winslow Community Federal Credit Union, and Kennebec Savings Bank merging with Kennebec Savings and Loan Association. The second merger is discussed with Kennebec Savings CEO and President, Andrew Silsby.
