Winners are David Hession, a Music major at USM and Bailey Woodard, a Biology (pre-med) major at UMO. 2021 Scholarship awards will depend entirely on donations, since there was no supper this year. Donations may be made at KC’s Country Store or the Parkman Town Office. You can also write a check to the Parkman Grange, noting “Scholarship Fund” on the memo line and mail it to the Parkman Grange: PO Box 114, Guilford, ME 04443.
