A very pleasant treat at 76 Pleasant Street!
Make sure to give 76 Pleasant Street a try. It was opened in 2011 by Owners, Brett & Amy Baker who hail from Lake Tahoe, CA. They have done a very nice job rennovating the home and the food and service was terrific. It is getting great reviews on TripAdvisor so make sure to call (744-9040) for reservations!
What do you love more - your green lawn or a clean lake? You CAN have both! If you are in the lakes watershed area - please help keep our lakes, ponds and streams clean by using phosphorus-free products! Paris Farmer's Union is stocking No Phos phosphorus-free fertilizer.
There is lots of valuable information about what you can do to help keep our lakes clean at the Maine DEP Website.
Norway has online boat registration! For those of you like me who always forget to do this at Town Hall - just a few mouse clicks & your credit card and you can renew and print out your boat registration at home (stickers are mailed).
