PEEK at the Week: May 28
PEEK into the PAST: Pictured above is Volume 1, No. 1 of The Dover Bulletin published in September of 1922. A monthly publication by the Dover Chamber of Commerce, The Dover Bulletin was meant to keep Dover citizens up to date of things happening around town. It brought to the attention some upgrades around the town at the time, such as parks, railroads, and gravel roads, as well as promoting upcoming city events, specifically hosted by the Dover Chamber.

After the first edition of The Dover Bulletin was published, the Concord Chamber of Commerce caught wind of it and sent a letter to the Dover Chamber. It read: "Congratulations on "The Dover Bulletin! I believe that you have gotten out one of the most interesting and finest appearing bulletins of the sort which has come to my notice. Will you tell me how you do it? Yours very truly, E.W. Porter, Secretary."

For more historical content, check out the Chamber's Instagram and Facebook . Peek into the Past is a special section running in PEEK this year to signify the 100th anniversary of the Chamber.

A message from Kennebunk Savings:

FRAUD ALERT! Another community bank is reporting that fraudsters, posing as bank representatives, are contacting customers via phone, email and text trying to get them to provide debit card data and other personal information. In another case, loan customers received postcards urging them to call the bank to discuss “an important matter regarding the loan”- this is also a scam. If you are ever unsure about who you are being contacted by or talking to, DO hang up the phone or ignore responding to emails and texts. Instead, DO only use the contact information on your bank's website, debit cards, other known bank communications to contact your bank. Do not be fooled or bullied into giving out your personal information.

The Greater Dover Chamber of Commerce City Lights Committee decorated downtown Dover with American flags on May 14! The City Lights Committee is a volunteer group of Dover Chamber of Commerce members and residents dedicated to hanging American flags on Central Avenue during the summer months, as well as illuminating downtown Dover during the holiday season.
The hanging of the flags was made possible through the City Lights Committee and the Dover Elks Lodge #184. Cleary Cleaners of Dover donated their cleaning services to freshen up the flags before they were hung. Volunteers who helped hang the flags this year were Brian Dailey, Dover Elks Lodge #184; Daniel Gagnon, Prudential Advisors; and Deborah Clough, Dover Main Street; as well as Chamber staff members.
Congratulations to the Dover High School class of 2020!
