My name is Jason McFarland and I own a small landscaping business in Blue Hill named "Lawns In Order". I have worked with volunteers from the Score office in Ellsworth several times over the years. From starting the business and developing financial reports to hiring employees and creating policies and procedures, they have been very helpful and always had time to discuss my concerns with me. They have many resources available that I didn't realize and the volunteers have many years of business experiance to draw on - a huge asset.

I cannot thank them enough for all their support during the different growth stages of my business and I will continue to call on them in the future. Their volunteer work is a huge help to growing businesses and has a very real effect oncreating jobs in this area. So a big "Thank You" to the Downeast Maine Score volunteers for their help in establishing a sucessful business on the Blue Hill Peninsula.
