PISCATAQUIS VALLEY EXPO

The S.P.C.C.C. Board of Directors voted to change the name of the Business, Industry and Health Show to the Piscataquis Valley Expo. The name change will reflect the number of exhibitors from outside of Piscataquis County who are taking part in this growing Show.

The expo will be held on April 9 & 10, 1999 at PCHS in Guilford. Last years show was the best ever and the 1999 show promises to be better yet.
