    The Mars Hill Rotary Club met Aug. 25. at the Aroostook Health Center and the guest speaker was Nick Archer. He spoke about the Washburn Park Project, which will be completed by the end of 2016. The dam and trestle crossing were removed and a walking loop, picnic area and more are being formed.
The dam has been in place for many years, used for mills before becoming a swimming hole. The swimming hole was closed a few years ago due to the water quality. The decision was made to remove the dam and form a park when money became available through a government grant.
The removal of the dam has opened up over 28 square miles of watershed area for the west branch of Salmon Stream.
