2015 marks a big year for the Skowhegan Area Chamber of Commerce (SACC), as it is the 75th anniversary of our organization servicing, promoting and helping to grow the business community of the lower Somerset county region. Established in 1940 under the wings of the Skowhegan Hospitality Association, the chamber has long stood as an advocate for business in the region, but also the chamber has been a leader in many initiatives that have seen the region prosper. Throughout 2015, the SACC will be highlighting different successes the region has had over the years, and the role the chamber has played in helping to make them happen. I hope you enjoy this retrospective and that you continue to look at what is happening at the Skowhegan region when you are making plans for what to do, and where to shop and where to play.
Get your very own Skowhegan Indian!
The Skowhegan Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce a new fundraising partnership featuring the work of local whittler, Sharon Kimball. The artistry is amazing as Sharon has created three pieces of art for the Skowhegan-lover in your family. The three pieces are various-sized depictions of Bernard Langlais’ iconic masterwork, The Skowhegan Indian. Sharon has created three sized works to scale including a …17-inch, an 11-inch and a 4-inch ornament-sized Indian. The proceeds from the sales of these statues will go towards an evolving maintenance and stewardship account for the Indian to beautify the statue, the area around it and for continued maintenance through the years. Each piece is hand-whittled and unique to the owner of that piece. There is nothing like it around.
