The founders of Legacy Years Transition Services, Chuck and Harriet Vaughan, are a husband and wife team. They have been married since 1966 and are senior citizens themselves. They are old enough to share the traditional values of Maine people and young enough to navigate the intricacies of selecting appraisers, movers, antique dealers, cleaners, real estate agents and the multitude of other services that may be required.They met at the University of Maine where Harriet earned a degree in Home economics and Chuck, a degree in Agricultural Business and Economics. In the years since, he has taught Industrial Arts and they have owned several businesses including a full service garage and a Sears Catalog and Appliance Store. They both have worked for the betterment of Maine people, serving numerous local, regional and statewide organizations. Currently, Harriet is a board member and treasurer of the Sheepscot Valley Health Center. Chuck is a trustee of the Lincoln County Historical Association and is secretary of the Coopers Mills Volunteer Fire Department.
After several experiences helping downsize and close out family households, the Vaughans realized that their education, business background and personalities had equipped them to help others in similar situations. They joined the National Association of Senior Move Managers which provides training and credentials to assure high standards. They are also members of the Institute for Challenging Disorganization, which provides training for dealing with the many variables in working with the elderly.
