HOULTON, Maine — Do you know an ordinary person who has done extraordinary things for Houlton youth? Perhaps it is a high school principal, a police officer, a teacher, a bank teller, a neighbor, or a coach who has gone above and beyond the call of duty to help young people succeed. Help us recognize their outstanding contributions by nominating them for the Superhero Award.
The heroes selected will be honored on Saturday, Aug. 22 during a community conversation event from 6–8 p.m. at Southside School in Houlton.
In addition, there will be games, prizes, food and a presentation from SAD 29 youth about the results of a recent survey they completed. The youth will share their perceptions of their community, substance abuse and their future.
Superhero nomination forms can be completed online at http://www.asapcoalition.com/houlton-heroes.html. Forms can be picked up at the following locations in Houlton: Uncle Willey’s Candy Shoppe; Dead River, I-95; and County Yankee.
Pioneer Times’ readers can help us honor positive adult role models in Houlton. Mail a completed entry form by Tuesday, Aug. 18 to Allison Heidorn, 739 Main Street, Caribou, ME 04736. For further information visit www.asapcoalition.com or call 521-2408.
