Thank you for support of West Kennebunk community events

To the editor:

Our committee would like to express its deep appreciation to all who helped make recent West Kennebunk community events such wonderful times.

Thank you to all of the bakers and crafters who participated in the holiday fair in November. Also, thank you to the fire department for the generous use of its West Kennebunk facility.

The second event, the annual Thanksgiving dinner, was a resounding success, with more than 130 meals served or sent out.

Thank you to all of the volunteers who helped prep the food, set up the Stevens Center, serve the meal, bake myriad desserts, and do clean up.

Thirdly, thank you to all who helped with the West Kennebunk tree lighting.

The Kennebunk Twirlers braved the cold and put on a wonderful demonstration. Santa (aka, Rick Kolseth) arrived by fire truck, helped light the tree and with Molly Pierce’s Girl Scouts, led participants in caroling.

Activity moved inside the center, where Santa greeted the children and refreshments were enjoyed.

Again, thank you to all who provided and served the refreshments, worked on set-up and clean-up.

Special thanks to Tom Cahoon and Eric Griffith for their invaluable services, as well as to our tree lighting master of ceremonies Al Searles.

Lastly, but certainly not least, thank you to all the families, friends, neighbors, and others who came to enjoy these events. Your participation is what makes all of the effort so worthwhile. You help to make West Kennebunk a very special and vibrant community. Our committee wishes one and all a wonderful and healthy Happy New Year.
