Welcome! Central Aroostook Association has been proudly serving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities since 1959. This amazing association was founded by parents who believed that their sons and daughters deserved to be educated, employed, and to live in their own communities. Through a dedicated Board of Directors and supportive staff, our mission has continued for 54 years. The association has grown from one program and is now supporting people in eight different programs. We hope that you enjoy surfing through our website. - Stephen D. Richard, Executive Director
We are happy to announce that this year's United Way Auction will be conducted electronically through our company website. We have close to 60 items uploaded in the employee section of the website and the bidding will start on Monday, September 8th.
Log in to the website via the employee sign in section at the bottom of this page. As you know, to enter the employee section, you must use your Time Clock Plus Staff ID number as the User Name and your Time Clock Plus Pin Number as the password. Please contact your Program Director if you have any troubles logging in.
Once here, you will see a Blue United Way Auction button. Select this button to enter the online auction. You will then see the items listed with descriptions, values and pictures. You can also navigate to other pages of items on the bottom of the page. To bid on an item, select the “Bid Now” button next to the picture of the item. This action will bring you to a bidding page where you can see the current bid, the bidding deadline, the current bidder and a place to enter your own bid. Once the bid is placed, you will be brought to a page that asks you if you want to commit to the bid. Select the “Yes Commit to Purchase” button to register you bid. You can then use the back arrow to navigate back and enter other bids or log out if you are done bidding. You can then check the online auction to see if your bid is holding up or to enter a higher bid if your bid is no longer the highest.
Please remember that the bids must be in at least one dollar increments and that you are responsible for payment of the item if you are the highest bidder once the auction ends on November 7th at noontime.
The year of 2014 has been an exceptional one for Central Aroostook Association. Most notably, the association is celebrating its 55th Year Anniversary since its inception in 1959 due to the grassroot efforts of concerned parents. In addition, the association added a new recreation area on its Lombard capmus, which includes tennis and basketball courts, and placed a new sign for passersby to view from North Street and Fort Fairfield Road. The executive team has recognized Board Members, past and present, who have dedicated 20 or more years to the association. Each individual recognized received a token of appreciation and a plaque has been posted at OTC, special purpose private school. The association is also hosting another old-fashioned potluck supper in which the 55 year history will be displayed, honored and remembered.
