Buy local group changes name

South Portland Buy Local voted recently to change its name to South Portland/Cape Elizabeth Buy Local. Although it always included Cape Elizabeth businesses in the past, they were not mentioned in the group’s logo. A new logo to incorporate both communities will be created in coming months. The organization also voted to accept nonprofits in South Portland and Cape Elizabeth as members.

The group recently elected a new president, April Cohen-Tracy. Cohen- Tracy is a lifelong South Portland resident and real estate broker. The group’s third annual directory was scheduled to be presented Tuesday, June 25.

The SoPo/CE Buy Local Bug Light Summer Festival is slated to be held Saturday, Aug. 17 at Bug Light Park. Sponsors of the event include the city of South Portland, South Portland-Cape Elizabeth Chamber of Commerce, Norway Savings and Two Lights Dental.
