Thanks for making a virtual visit to Wiscasset, Maine, and its neighboring towns - Alna, Dresden, Edgecomb, Westport, and Woolwich - in the midcoast region. This is a wonderful place to live and do business.
We enjoy a beautiful setting on the unspoiled Maine coast with a great mix of people, businesses, and non-profit organizations who make our year-round community vibrant. Tourists drawn by our historic towns, rural landscapes, and proximity to recreational opportunities and lively urban centers bring new energy every season.

Second Annual Dinner and Awards Banquet
The Wiscasset Area Chamber of Commerce held its Second Annual Dinner and Awards Banquet on Thursday, February 7th, 2013, at the historic Ft. Hill Church on Ft. Hill Street in Wiscasset. It was a beautiful event in a beautifully renovated historic church in Wiscasset Village.
Musical entertainment was provided by the talented harpist Suki Flanagan, and our Keynote Speaker was Selectman Ed Polewarczyk, who spoke about his career in the space program. The lovely dinner was provided by Damariscotta River Grill, and awards were presented by Board Members of the Wiscasset Area Chamber of Commerce.
The Barnes/Smith Lifetime Achievement Award was given to Katharine Martin-Savage (pictured above) for her endless work within the community. The Growth and Development Award went to Twin City Security Solutions, for their remarkable growth in the past few years. The award for Volunteer of the Year went to Charlie Huntington, owner of I and S Insulation, for his hard work within the community. The award for Outstanding Business Owner went to Al Cohen, owner of Big Al's, for his charity work and commitment to the community.
Thank you to everyone who helped make our Second Annual Dinner and Awards Banquet a success! And thank you to everyone who works to improve our community in endless ways!

Thank you to everyone who helped make the Think Outside the Box Campaign a wonderful success! 286 completed passports were entered into the drawing, which means that $28,600 was spent locally in the Wiscasset area this holiday season! That's $28,600 that stayed in our community, in local businesses, and with local people. And this was only the first year!
Many local businesses donated prizes, and many local business owners donated their time to help make this campaign a success. We all realize how important it is to support our local economy, and everyone really came together this holiday season to make it happen!
We had so many prizes to give away for the drawing! Here is a list of winners, so be sure to congratulate them if you see someone you know!

Thank you again for all of your support during our first buy local campaign for the Wiscasset Area. We look forward to expanding on this idea and doing even more with it in 2013. Buying local is a great thing to do all the time, not just during our campaign!
