DEXTER – The opportunity for one-stop shopping in Sebasticook Valley is rare. There are few stops that would allow you to discuss new banking programs or products, get your blood pressure checked, fit your child with a bike helmet and try the latest in cupcakes or cookies. You could also discuss your insurance needs or changes, test the latest in kitchen utensils, check out the latest in new makeup colors, sample local publications, or learn more about vocational training opportunities.
These and more diverse opportunities will be available as part of the Sebasticook Valley Chamber of Commerce's 15th Annual Trade Show and Community Fair on May 7 at the Ridge View Community School, Fern Road in Dexter.
An annual event first held in Newport, the show now circulates in the larger towns of the valley to spread the opportunity for Chamber members and friends to demonstrate or introduce products and services to each other and the public. This year, the Trade Show will be in Dexter at the new Ridge View Community School on Fern Road, off Route 94 (the Garland Road). Business booths will be located in the gymnasium and crafters and artisans will be in the cafeteria. While registrations are adding up, booth space is still available by calling the Chamber at 368-4698 and fax 368-5312, or email at email@example.com.
