Business owners and landlord Tim Heney (third from left) in front of the Blanchard Block, where all the businesses, from the corner of East State and Main streets to the fire station, are now open after rebuilding from the flood of July 10–11. Reopening the building in time for foliage season took thousands of hours of work by business owners, volunteers, and professionals, and many credit Heney for his efforts.
