JACKMAN — Community member Linda Conrad, with the help of many other volunteers, raised $3,726 recently to help fund the After-Hours Emergency Care Paramedic Program at the Jackman Health Center, which is operated by Penobscot Community Health Care.

Conrad had saved many pots and vases from her parents’ estate to have a plant sale prior to Mother’s Day. Her parents, Rene and Huguette Morin, were strong supporters of health care in the Jackman area for many years. Rene Morin kept detailed scrapbooks preserving the history of the health center.

“We thank everyone who donated flowers, potting soil and cemetery wreaths. We also thank those who helped transplant the flowers. Many people who came to our fundraiser gave such generous donations. Our community is amazing,” said Conrad, according to a news release from the Town of Jackman Citizens Health Advisory Team.

Appreciation also goes to all the volunteers who sold raffle tickets, and everyone who helped at the fundraiser for three days.

Mountain Country Supermarket provided space in the entranceway for the sale. Two organizations contributed to the raffle prizes: North East Mobile Health Services gave $50 towards a gift certificate at Mountain Country, and a $450 donation. Somerset Public Health donated a variety of sporting equipment. Ricky Messer won the $50 gift certificate, and Mina Daigle and Wyatt Savage each won a box full of sporting equipment.

Those who have an emergency after hours can call 207-668-7755 to speak to a provider.

If an ambulance is needed, call 911.
