Returning to show once again will be the, The Cumberland County's Sheriffs Department Dare Program's Fatal Experience Project and the second Annual Webber Hardware Penquis Valley Belt Sander Race.
The Cumberland County's Sheriff Dept. Fatal Experience project is designed to teach the danger of drinking and driving. The program will ask local participants to drive a golf cart through a maze of cones with special designed fatal vision goggles. The goggles will blur the participant's vision, giving them the same effect as drinking alcohol.
The Chamber Expo will also host the second Annual Penquis Valley Belt Sander Race, which is being sponsored by Webber Hardware of Dover-Foxcroft. The Store agreed to offer gifts certificates of $100 to winners of the stock and modified classes. The belt sanders will race on a special built track designed by students of PCHS. Lyford explained that event is drag racing with power tools.
The Chamber also plans to offer musical entertainment by the Buie School of Music and the North Country Strings
