MYRICK AWARD HONOREES — Tom and Nancy Harrigan cut the ribbon to formally open the Harrigan Learning Center and Museum in Milo in 2016. The Milo couple have been named as this year’s recipients of the Warren “Pete” Myrick Award by the PCEDC, and they will be honored on the evening of Monday, Dec. 10 at The Commons at Central Hall in Dover-Foxcroft.

The Executive Committee of the PCEEDC presents the Myrick Award each year to recognize a Piscataquis County citizen, business, or organization who exemplifies Myrick’s concern for and commitment to education, economic development, and/or civic leadership in the region. Myrick, who passed away in 2002, was a longtime education in Guilford and a founder of PCEDC, serving as the council’s president in 2001.

“Tom and Nancy Harrigan invest time, personal resources, and their passion both in Milo and throughout our region,” said PCEDC Executive Director Christopher Winstead. “The construction of the Three Rivers Kiwanis Building, the Harrigan Learning Center, and the Milo-Brownville & Points North Visitor enter, demonstrate their passion for seeing local communities prosper. Tom and Nancy exemplify the Myrick Award trifecta; a commitment to education, economic development, and civic leadership.”

Please join the PCEDC on Monday, Dec. 10 from 5-8 p.m. at The Commons for Central Hall for the dinner, annual meeting, and award presentation. Event registration can be done at
