Wells Founders Park

The Wells Founders Park Community Center, an idea long in the making, is beginning to take shape on the town-owned parcel of land on Route 109 between Wells Town Hall and Wells Elementary School. 

The structure itself will include a 120 by 200-foot concrete pad, including an 80 by 150-foot area that will serve as an ice-skating rink (conceptual photo attached). There will be a roof covering the majority of the concrete pad and the structure will include bathrooms, a garage, and a utilities room. It will be open-sided with room outside the covered area for picnic tables.

As a year-round enterprise, uses envisioned includes skating, of course, but also pickleball, the farmer’s market, craft shows, concerts, and school activities, as well as being available for rental for private gatherings.

The success of this project is dependent solely on private contributions.  This season we will be accepting donations for the Founders Park project at the Front Desk.  

The Elmwood Resort will be matching our guests’ donations up to
$5,000 between now and Columbus Day!

Mike Maurice

“We were aware of how talented Mike Maurice was on the keys, but nothing could prepare us for his fantastic guitar work on his new album “Apartment Secrets”. Layers of electric and acoustic guitar are joined with mandolin and (of course) keys creating a nicely done soundtrack for Maurice’s cool and soothing vocals. The songs themselves are the true stars of the show with the two singles, “Yesterday’s Mistakes” and “Forest Fire” bookending a pack of really well done songs.” – Mainebrews N Musicreviews
