The Travis Mills Foundation will open its new Health and Wellness Center to the public for the first time at its Sunday, Oct. 30 Open House from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at its Retreat in Rome, Maine.

It took exactly one year from groundbreaking to ribbon cutting on the $7 million facility that includes an indoor
pool, large and small fitness areas, a massage room and more. The Center is filled with mainstream fitness
equipment so that the recalibrated veterans served by the Foundation can learn to adapt to them depending on
their injury, and then return home to attend their local fitness centers or develop a home gym.

The event is free and open to the public; visitors are asked to sign up for their free ticket at

The event will also include TMF merchandise, make-and-take crafts for children, trick-or-treating, face painting,
tattoos, doughnut eating contest, hot dogs, cider and more. Costumes encouraged!

Also at the event, the Foundation is selling a limited number of $25 raffle tickets for a handcrafted solo canoe
built exclusively for Travis Mills Foundation by Russ Sabia, a summer resident on Long Pond. Tickets can be
purchased when signing up for Open House tickets.
