Who Are We?
GO Van Buren is a varied group of individuals, all residents of Van Buren, Maine and its surrounding communities, each of us proud of our place as "Gateway to the Saint John Valley." GO Van Buren is primarily TOWN oriented, not commerce oriented . . . so we have more latitude to work freely for the general benefit of all, without the natural constraints of commercial, political or fraternal interests . . . and you are welcome to participate regardless of age or affiliation. But your input and participation are needed. We can be reached by simply emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or click the 'Contact Us' menu button above; all questions and comments are given our prompt attention.
What do we do?
GO Van Buren's ongoing projects include:
1] Our Aroostook Artisans Craft Fair, growing in popularity and prestige; next scheduled for Saturday, May 6, 2017. Click 'Craft Fair' above for details.
2] A fascinating tour of down-town Van Buren in tri-fold leaflet form reminiscing 'the way we were' and giving interesting trivia, plus a sort of 'Treasure Hunt' of things to find during the walk. You can copy it free of charge for use at reunions, as goodwill tourist handouts, etc. -- and it even has a space to insert your business card, advertising copy, or other message. Send a stamped, self-addressed #10 envelope to: GO-Van Buren Downtown Tour, 68 Main St., Ste. 101, Van Buren, ME 04785
3] The GOPHER, a community newsletter offering news and info about our town and neighboring communities -- pick up paper copies distributed at local outlets or read the most recent issues here.
Team, devoted to aggressively revitalizing Van Buren as a Certified Business Friendly Community; activities currently shelved.
