SANGERVILLE — Spring is barely a gleam in the weatherman’s eye these days. But for some older Mainers, the rollout of the 2016 Maine Senior FarmShare program last week stirred deep anticipation of the sweet aroma of fresh-tilled soil and the welcome sight of tender young vegetables at local farm stands.

SANGERVILLE — A home on Frenchs Mill Road was destroyed by fire on March 2, officials said.

The fire at the two-story residence broke out shortly before noon, according to Lt. Marc Boutilier of the Sangerville Fire Department. Boutilier said half of the house was gone when firefighters arrived to battle the blaze, so there was nothing crews could do to save the home.

A cause has not been determined, and the fire remains under investigation.


Crews from Sangerville, Dexter, Dover-Foxcroft, Guilford and Monson were sent to the home.

SANGERVILLE — Residents, via a special town meeting vote in late January, approved a $50,000 application from the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Micro-Enterprise Program for the family-owned Martin’s Cleaning Service. The grant application is earmarked to help the business expand, as awarded funds would provide for the purchase of additional commercial cleaning equipment and to acquire a van to transport the new equipment.
