DEXTER – Dexter Regional Development Corporation (DRDC) is pleased to announce that Debbie Learned of Exeter is going to be the Assistant Manager at Fossa’s General Store with Courtney Doore of Dexter and Belinda Crouse of Sangerville filling out the crew when the store opens in May.

Debbie is a military veteran, has lived all over the country before putting her roots down in Exeter last year. She has experience in startup businesses & working with a staff. She is an animal lover & rescuer of her pets.

Courtney grew up in the Milo area but has lived in Dexter for almost 8 years. She worked for Judy Craig Consulting for 6 years, worked at Abbott Memorial Library and has retail experience. She is also very artistic and an animal lover as well.

Belinda is married to Contractor Fred Crouse and they have horses and dogs and is a self-professed “country girl”. Many of you may know Belinda from Lake Shore Lunch as the friendly server or out on the trail riding her beloved horses.

We are still in search of a full time cook who is inventive with local food and ‘scratch cooking’, but we have many volunteer chefs/cooks who are offering their time to be volunteer celebrity chefs.

We have volunteers that are anxious to help in the non-profit store as well; ages ranging from 8 to 85!!!

Call Project Coordinator/Store Manager Judy Wilbur Craig if you would like to be a part of the Dexter Community Farm Project & Fossa’s General Store at 924.DEXTer (3398) or email at
