food driveWe won't be collecting food donations for the Gorham Pantry, but we encourage you to donate to the pantry on your own.
Donation bins are located outside the Pantry ( the portable at St Annes Church), as well as inside Baxter Library, and the Gorham Public Safety building. We also are encouraging folks to purchase donation cards (of varying amounts) when they shop at the Hannaford here in Gorham. ( Instead of the $10 boxes of food folks in our community are used to seeing each year.)

gralandWe won’t be gathering for the Tree Lighting this year, but we are asking that you contribute to a Gratitude Garland on the Fence of Baxter Library. The black metal fence at the library has been decorated with a garland and we ask that you make a cloth, paper, or card stock ornament to tie on to it with your good wishes and positive thoughts for your neighbors and friends. Look for the good. Send happy thoughts. Give thanks. - Thank you!
