About the Author:

I’m Conrad Walton, a full time resident of Walker. We’ve lived through being snowed in and power outages.

We have no other home.

I’m a licensed real estate professional working for RealtyONEGroup, Mountain Desert, here in Prescott.

My goal is to give back to the community by providing a common web site to support everyone’s efforts in the Walker area.

Because I’ve been a web developer for over 20 years, building web sites is easy for me.

I want to help in any way I can.

This site is not owned by the WFPA or the WCAA or any other organization.

I host it, manage it, and I am completely responsible for it.
