News and Notes from The Community Center

Oh, my goodness. The Christmas Gift Theme Baskets are taking shape and they are going to be spectacular this year! The baskets themselves are special, ranging from one woven in an African Village to some antique treasures. The contents are equally intriguing…a Vera Bradley Weekend get-away, an automotive collection, a holiday party basket, as well as many baby quilts and knitted wonders. Do not miss the opportunity to bid in this Silent Auction beginning at 10 a.m. on Dec. 11 and ending at 4 p.m. on Dec. 21.

We are overwhelmed by the response to our Giving Tuesday request for funding. Each day there are more envelopes in the Post Office. Your response to our work is humbling, indeed.

We continue to hear rave reviews about how helpful the students from the Deck House School are. We are grateful that we are on their community service list and do so enjoy having the boys as part of our family.

Don’t forget to reserve your space for Dr. Patty Phillips’ nutrition workshop—a shopping expedition to Hannaford on Dec. 18.

Finally, many thanks to Molly Barter for the beautiful selection of fabric she brought to us. The Quilters are going wild.

If you need the van to pick you up and take you to walk at the Y or if you need more information about our programs, call 633-9876.
