Augusta Civic Center Hosts Home Show 

The annual Maine Manufactured Housing Show was held at the Augusta Civic Center through the weekend.More than 30 vendors took part in this year’s event.Many of them say, after a tough couple of years, business is bouncing back.Their products are particularly popular with young families and retirees, looking to downsize.”They want comfort, they want convenience, they certainly want energy efficiency and rather than try to streamline an old home, often times its easier to come here, make a choice of a home that will satisfy their needs,” said Bob Cole of America’s Best Show.Organizers expected more than 5,000 people to attend the three-day event.
