Ben Voisine is the owner of Voisine Brothers Inc. He says they've been shut down for two months because of mud season, but that this is very typical.
Right now they're doing maintenance work on their machines after what he says was a tough winter.
Voisine says June 11th will be the day the machines get going again. He says he's excited for that day.
A local resident is giving back to her community and hopes others will join her.
Lisa Wark of Mapleton has set a goal of Saturday to renovate the gazebo and bridge in downtown Mapleton. She'd also like to add flowers to the little park. She's hoping to have the work completed for Monday's festivities.
"We are hoping to have the gazebo renovated for the upcoming parade on Memorial Day - maybe get the community involved," said Wark. "It's starting to get run down and if we can get some help, maybe we can make it look nice and take some pride in our hometown. You show pride and then you show our young people. You have to show our young people you have to take care of your stuff, you have to have pride in your community. That's the only way to do it. That's the only way they learn is through seeing us do it."
Wark welcomes other volutneers to join her in sprucing up the park, hoping her actions will encourage folks in other communities to do something for their hometown as well. Volunteers are welcome to join Wark at the park on Saturday at 9 a.m. Paint is being provided by the town but volunteers are asked to bring their own paint brushes or rakes and to wear work clothes.
