CARRABASSETT VALLEY — Maine could, and should, transition to a clean energy economy.Chester Greenwood Day is our annual celebration of Farmington resident Chester Greenwood, the inventor of earmuffs. In 1936 the company had its biggest year producing 400,000 pairs.Greenwood was only fifteen when he designed the first pair of ear protectors out of wire, beaver fur, and cloth. The annual Chester Greenwood Day is hosted by the Franklin County Chamber of Commerce and takes place the first Saturday in December, bringing thousands to the area to watch and/or participate in the hour-long parade.Seth Wescott is a two-time Olympic gold medalist and a member of the U. A healthy winter is about more than just powder days.
It’s about people’s livelihoods and local businesses.You may even run into one of Chester's family as many make the trek to Farmington each year to participate in the parade and visit with relatives who still live locally.Local student musicians and carolers also line the streets and corners sharing beautiful songs and carols for passerby.The Franklin County Chamber of Commerce has set its sights on providing holiday meals to Franklin County families this December.Last year, with tremendous support of area businesses, individuals, and numerous volunteers, the program helped more than 200 families come together over a warm meal during the holidays.Seth Wescott joined the ownership group a couple of years ago and has become the chief designer.
