Maine Credit Unions ‘Keep ME Warm’ With $30,000 Contribution

Maine Credit Unions ‘Keep ME Warm’ With $30,000 Contribution

In response to an urgent need to help offset cuts to the federal low income Home Energy Assistance Program, known as LIHEAP, Maine’s credit unions made a collective contribution to the “Keep ME Warm” Program of $30,000.  The Keep ME Warm Program is a collaboration of the ten United Way organizations in Maine and the ten Community Action Programs.  The contribution will purchase nearly 9,000 gallons of fuel for families across Maine.

In presenting the check on behalf of Maine’s credit unions, John Murphy, President of the Maine Credit Union League, applauded the willingness of Maine’s credit unions to come together in a “cooperative effort.  Credit unions are located across Maine and have members in every community. To credit unions, helping members goes far beyond just providing financial services, it means so much more.  The opportunity to help families in communities throughout Maine heat their homes speaks directly to what credit unions are all about.

Real Estate Thursday - 2011 in Review

Real Estate Thursday - 2011 in Review

2011 was an interesting year in real estate.  I called it the year of transition.  Overall homes sales were up throughout the year from the year before.  It was encouraging to see signs that the real estate market was improving month over month especially in Maine.

The average sale price would remain unchanged or dip a bit over the 12 months but overall values were still competitive.
