RANGELEY - The Maine Forestry Museum invites every girl and boy aged 6 to 8 to sign up for the Little Miss and Mister Woodchip Contest to be held on July 17 at 7 p.m. at the Forestry Museum grounds, 221 Stratton Road, Dallas Plantation. The Woodchip program is part of the Museum’s 40th Annual Logging Festival, July 17 and 18.

Contestants may sing a song or recite a poem; they may choose a favorite or write their own. (Other performances, such as dancing or playing musical instruments, will not be accepted toward the competition). Every Woodchip contestant receives a prize. Winners will ride in the Little Miss and Mister Woodchip float in the Forestry Museum parade on Saturday, July 18 and be introduced at the Festival immediately after the parade.

To enter children in the contest, please contact Liz Pimentel (917 836-1632).

As usual, we have some special additions to the evening’s events. On hand will be the fabulous Pulled Together Band playing bluegrass and folk tunes.

Admission to the Woodchip event is $5.00, and $1.00 for children under 6.

The Maine Forestry Museum, located at 221 Stratton Road, opens Wednesday through Sunday from 11-5. For more information about the Museum and its events, call 207 864-3939 and visit the Museum Facebook page and website:
