Nickerson & O'Day teams up with the brave men and women of Bangor Fire Department
December 15th: Each year, Nickerson & O'Day teams up with the brave men and women of Bangor Fire Department to raise money and then go on a massive shopping spree for the Toys for Tots program.
This year, we were able to raise about $3,000 and Tuesday night, we visited Bangor stores and "filled the firetruck" to the roof with presents! We then delivered the load to the Bangor region Toys for Tots warehouse for distribution to needy families.
In doing this, we ensure that dozens of children across Maine who otherwise would have nothing under their tree Christmas morning, can see that Santa did not forget them this year!
Many thanks to Bangor Fire Department Chief Thomas Higgins, and firefighters Andy Willigar, Jared Bowden, and John York and many others and their families for allowing us to be part of this great tradition! Merry Christmas to everyone!

Ribbon Cutting for Mi'kmaq Wellness Center in Presque Isle
On September 1st, Karl was privileged to speak briefly before roughly 150 assembled guests at the official ribbon cutting for the new two-million-dollar Mi'kmaq Wellness Center in Presque Isle. He spoke about the economic impact of the construction spending in the region, and more importantly about the spiritual significance of the eagle-shaped design of the building as it pertains to Mi'kmaq beliefs and lore. Many kudos to Nickerson & O'Day project manager Tim Porter superintendent Lee Bryant for their outstanding work on this latest Nickerson & O'Day creation!
Central Community Elementary School Project
Yesterday, Karl traveled to East Corinth where he toured our nearly completed $22M Central Community Elementary School project. We are very close and putting the finishing touches on the entire building. So fun to see the excited looks on all of the teacher's faces as they moved their teaching materials into their respective classrooms! We have all been waiting for this day for nearly two years since Nickerson & O'Day began the project. Looking forward to a fun ribbon-cutting next week!
Presque Isle Community Center Project
On July 26th, Karl trekked north to The County to check in on our $8M Presque Isle Community Center project. The job looks great and headed toward a mid-September completion thanks to the efforts of project manager Tim Porter and 21-year Veteran superintendent Tony Tinto. Looking forward to a fun ribbon cutting and open house!
To Those Who Care Awards
On July 21st, as a sponsor and member of the Board of Governors, Karl had the honor of helping to choose the recipients of the WLBZ2 To Those Who Care Awards at the Channel2 offices in Bangor. The qualifications and incredible volunteerism and years of service that these nominees present is awe-inspiring. Very difficult choice and the votes were close. Stay tuned in November for the broadcast from Nickerson & O'Day-built Gracie Theatre at Husson University. Who knows, maybe you know one of the winners!
