MILLINOCKET — Bobbie Allen has built over 30 gardens and is the process of enlarging several of the garden beds. This year has been extremely difficult to raise funding for the equipment used in the maintenance and upkeep of the gardens and lawns. Allen has had to replace two tires on the lawn tractor,  two of the wheels on the utility garden cart, work on the mower decking, new trimmer, as well as gas and other incidentals. The cost of a new lawn tractor will be around $2500.00. If anyone could donate money to help fund this, checks can be mailed to Bobbie Allen 518 Central Street Millinocket, ME 04462-1803. She also is always looking for volunteers. Students, groups, and individuals are most welcome to help with the maintenance.
