Please help us recognize a deserving citizen who gives their time and talent for the benefit of our community by nominating them for Citizen of the Year. If you have nominated someone in the past – you may re-submit an application – each year many are nominated, but only one person is chosen annually.

The Process:

Selection: The Festival of Lights committee will review all nominations. This committee is comprised of York community members who then choose 5 finalists. These nominations are submitted to the Greater York Region Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors who then make the final decision.

Criteria: Volunteer efforts must benefit the town of York. Nominee does not have to be a resident of York. Chamber Board of Directors are not eligible.

Deadline for nominations is October 1, 2014. Winner will be announced at the Annual Chamber Member Dinner in November 2014. The winner will also be recognized in the official Citizen of the Year press release. The winner will also be the Grand Marshal for the Festival of Lights Parade.

York Maine - buy a brick

We’re pleased to announce that all of the bricks from the 2011-2013 brick project have been laid in front of Bill & Bob’s and Sweet Josie’s Candy Shoppe.  We thank you for your patience and helping us restore and beautify York Beach.

Raffle winner Alan Smith presents a check for $1,000 to Kim Sanborn, of the Kittery Historical & Naval Museum.


The Greater York Region Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce that the Save The Fresnel Lens Raffle concluded on October 13, 2013. On that date, the Chamber of Commerce Executive Director, Holly Roberts, presented the Kittery Historical & Naval Museum with a check for $2,000 to pay for the Insurance premium for two years to keep the Fresnel lens at the museum.

The drawing was also conducted for the $1,000 prize; congratulations to Kittery resident, Alan Smith, who was the winner! Smith served for thirty one years in the Coast Guard and one of his responsibilities included watching over Boon Island Light. After winning his prize, Smith generously donated all of his winnings to the Kittery Historical & Naval Museum!

The Chamber of Commerce would like to thank Sunrise Grill and everyone who participated in the raffle and supported the museum.
