AUGUSTA – On Tuesday, June 13, Senator Lisa Keim (R-Oxford) presented Randy Therien and Bernie Paré with a Legislative Sentiment recognizing EnvisionRumford for being named the Nonprofit Organization of the Year by the River Valley Chamber of Commerce.

“EnvisionRumford is a group of business leaders and community members working to make Rumford, and the greater River Valley area, a better place to live and do business,” said Sen. Keim. “Together these volunteers generate ideas, create an action plan to spur growth, and then through their own sweat equity, they tirelessly work the plan.”

Currently, their main objective is to revitalize downtown Rumford, a small patch of land in the Androscoggin river known as the Island. The EnvisionRumford team recognizes that a vibrant downtown significantly benefits the greater community.

“Due to the efforts of these volunteers, I believe the whole River Valley area will be revitalized. Their efforts and their story will someday be the one that gives other rural Maine towns hope.
