"I am both honored and humbled to receive this recognition from my peers. I can not say enough about the amazing team we have in the Western Maine region, and it is easy for me to give 110% to make the region better. More specifically, it has been amazing to be part of the growth of the region's RCS program and I want to thank my RCS team for continually supporting me and also challenging me to be the best I can be. Thank you!!"

The contest was held during a Western Maine team meeting and included all staff members working out of their regional office in Auburn, Maine.

2)  Presentation

3) Side dishes that go with the eating of the chili or the décor.

Winners of the Western Maine cook-off are as follows:

1st Place- Gail Shelley (Office Manager)
