Fryeburg Business Association is celebrating Fryeburg's 250th birthday with a summer-long party of fun and community activities starting Memorial Day Weekend and going through Labor Day weekend. If you are planning an activity or event this summer in Fryeburg that is open to the public, organizers are looking to add this to their marketing campaign and celebration.
"Together we can create an awareness of all the fun things going on in our community and make it an exciting birthday party that lasts all summer long," says Donna Woodward of Fryeburg Business Association. "Send Fryeburg Business Association the information on your event," says Woodward. "Whether it's a yard sale, church fair, car show, dance benefit, craft and arts festival, sock hop, farmers market or fund-raiser event, we want to know all the details." Email information to FBA@fryeburgbusiness.com with your contact info as well as the details and time of your activity. The information is needed as soon as possible. Fryeburg Business Association will be printing posters and brochures as well as marketing through the media all summer long, so information is requested by May 15 for those who wish to get in on the first printing. "Of course, you can add your event any time over the summer, but for the best exposure, earlier is better than later," Woodward said. For more information, or to volunteer to help with the planning or the event itself, contact Woodward at (207) 441-8170 or Holly Foster at (207) 935-2915. Those planning yard sales for Memorial Day weekend, May 25-27, can get into a giant townwide yard sale promotion and map by calling Holly Foster at (207) 935-2915. Fryeburg Business Association will create a listing on locations, dates and times and distribute them at the visitors center and local stores as well as advertise through the media outlets. Submission deadline is May 17. Event information can be mailed to Fryeburg Business Association, P.O. Box 654, Fryeburg, Maine 04037, or emailed toFBA@FryeburgBusiness.com.
