Turkey Citations in Fort Kent and Presque Isle
Sarah M. Duncan, Executive Director, United Way of Aroostook said “turkey citation” will be issued:
Aroostook County Sheriff Peter Johnson and United Way board member, Chris Carroll, are going to go around to previous donors in Fort Kent and Presque Isle and issue “turkey citations.” If the donor doesn’t want to pay, they will be brought back to the “freezer” to fundraise the amount.
