Hardy-Bickmore-Gee Rule the Roost at Scarborough Downs
By Michael Sweeney for Scarborough Downs

Scarborough, Maine (Saturday, Oct. 23, 2010) - James Hardy, leading driver at Plainridge Racecourse, came to Scarborough Downs on Saturday and walked away with five wins from the day's 11-race program. All Hardy's wins came while driving horses for trainer Randy Bickmore, who trumped Hardy’s five-win performance by sending six winners to the post.  From those six winners, five belonged to prominent Maine owner, Kevin Gee of Falmouth.

"It was just a great day today, just a great day," said Gee. "A great day for Randy and a great day for Jimmy. I called Jimmy this week and asked him to come down, he said 'sure,' and we’re all glad he did."

The Bickmore bundle included Formula One A (Steve Nason), along with Showtime Sam, Rusty's Rascal, JC Lou Benjamin, I'm A Lucky Man, and Hot Don Ho Bluegrass, all of which were driven by Hardy.

"Duffy’s Helps Save the Holidays"

Duffy's Tavern & Grill is proud to partner with the Holiday Food Baskets program to help those in need during the holiday season in the Kennebunks. 

Each year, the Kennebunk Clergy Association, in conjunction with the Town of Kennebunk, organize Holiday Food Baskets. These food baskets are filled with donated goods, including all the fixings for a family holiday meal. Volunteers from around the Kennebunks team up to compile and deliver the holiday baskets around the Kennebunk area.

This year, Duffy's Tavern & Grill is involving its guests in an attempt to raise money for the holiday basket program. Guests can donate to the food basket program directly through Duffy's. Each time a donation is made, guests will get to put their name on a turkey, which will be posted around Duffy's; the suggested donation is one dollar.

G.M. Pollack & Sons Jewelers...where couples get engaged...and...married, too!

After purchasing their wedding rings at one of our jewelry stores at the 5 Points Shopping Center in Biddeford, ME, Tammy Cummings and Ray Hebert were so touched by the personal interest and thoughtfulness of the Manager, Amanda Gendreau, and Sales Associates, Dorie Pelletier and Briana Fecteau, they asked if they could get married in the store!  This is a first for us, and we've been in business for 55 years!  The staff even bought dresses for the event and will be standing up for the couple!  The date of event is Sunday, 11.7.10, Sunday @ 11am.  We even have one of our employees from the Maine Mall, Jim Ames, a Justice of the Peace, performing the ceremony.
