According to this press release, Westbrook-based business Artel has been awarded a $12,500 grant from the Maine Technology Institute, which spurred a $14,775 matching grant from undisclosed sources in order to "find new market size and required design features to determine the technical and market viability or a pipette testing system that is significantly easier to use and lower in cost than the existing Artel PCS or other methods currently available." I'm not sure what that means, but it sounds good.
And according to this press release, Mission Possible Teen Center (MPTC) hosted former New England Patriots Andre Tippett and John Hannah yesterday afternoon. Tippett and Hannah, who are now both members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, visited the non-profit to promote community volunteerism. And if you recall, the Patriots honored Beverly Preston, a volunteer at MPTC, for her efforts in late May.
