(April 10) The Maine Potato Board, Presque Isle, and the Bushwick Commission Co. Inc., Farmingdale, N.Y., on March 15 presented the Children’s Miracle Network with a check for $2,500.

It was presented in a Wal-Mart Supercenter in Waterville, Maine, which stocks Bushwick’s 10-pound bags of Maine all-purpose potatoes with the “get real. get maine!” logo.

Wal-Mart has been carrying local potatoes in its Maine supercenters for several years, but it was again highlighting their availability in March, said Timothy Hobbs, director of development and grower relations for the board.
