Media outlets statewide, including the Portland Press Herald, covered news of the Oct. 18 joint Colby/Alfond $20-million investment in downtown Waterville. Publications including Mainebiz ran stories, Maine Public aired a piece, and TV stations WABI and WCSH were in Waterville covering the announcement. “When this community steps forward and rolls up its sleeves, the foundation will step up to match your efforts,” said Greg Powell, board chairman of the Harold Alfond Foundation, as reported in Mainebiz.
