The Gateway Ambassadors Program is a community-driven initiative designed to celebrate and promote the Greater Houlton area. Our goal is to form a group of energetic community members who will actively engage in promoting our region. Initially conceived as a means to connect newcomers with the resources and information needed to fully enjoy what our area has to offer, the program has evolved into a dynamic force for positive community engagement.
