The Greater Houlton Christian Academy (GHCA) annual Valentine’s Day supper was deemed a success by organizers.
    GHCA held its annual Valentine’s Day spaghetti supper on Feb. 7, raising over $4,400. Tony Bowers, Peter Holmes, Barrett Potter and Wayne Watson were the evening’s auctioneers and had a great time “egging” on bidders during the dessert auction.
    “This event is always a lot of fun and we had another full house,” said John Bishop, head of school. “We  are grateful to the community for the great support.”

    CARIBOU — Darren Woods, director of Aroostook County Emergency Management, looks at preparedness as a whole for Aroostook County and realized there’s a need for pet sheltering in case an emergency should occur.
    This past fall Woods applied for a Homeland Security grant that helps with sheltering, which is where a majority of their funding has come from. He received $750 to get the team started.
    Woods has put together a small core animal response team that would cover Aroostook County and they’re looking for enough volunteers, at least a dozen per team, to create northern, central and southern tiers to lessen travel time during an incident.
