letter to the editor

Generous businesses

Dear Editor:

When the Boothbay Region Elementary School PTO set out to collect items for Teacher Appreciation Week, we never imagined we would have enough gifts for each teacher and staff member. We put those gifts into a week-long raffle and as each gift was announced, the students cheered for their winning teachers.

During the week of raffles, we also put on a luncheon midweek, featuring donated food samples from some of Boothbay’s best restaurants.

The support of our local businesses and individuals alike shows how much our community loves its teachers and made our event a success.
