WATERVILLE, Maine — Ryan Poulin of New Dimensions Federal Credit Union, Waterville Area Citizen Award Dinner Chair, announced that Kimberly Lindlof, President/ CEO of the Mid-Maine Chamber of Commerce, will receive this year’s award from the Kennebec Valley District Boy Scouts for her 20+ years of service to the greater Waterville area.

The award will be presented on April 3rd at the Boy Scouts’ annual fundraising dinner being held at Thomas College. This fundraising event will help support over 10,000 scouts, leaders, and family members served by Scouting in central, western, and southern Maine.

Through Kimberly’s work on behalf of the Chamber of Commerce and the numerous organizations she lends her time and leadership skills to, she actively demonstrates many of the same values that Scouting works to instill into its participants. It is an honor for us to have this opportunity to recognize Kimberly,” said Scott Verrill, District Director and local Scouting representative.
