Maidstone High School’s SADD group had premium balsam fir trees for sale last week. With tremendous community support, they sold out all 25 trees within two days. What a fantastic way to help our students. Remember to make smart decisions and stay safe throughout this festive season.
Maidstone Community Health Committee’s Festival of Trees was a fantastic success again this year. With 146 items donated, bidders were generous on all items. Thank you to everyone who donated, all who bid, the many volunteers who helped and Santa who posed for a multitude of pictures Thursday evening. The door prize, a beautiful arrangement from Little Green Stub Planting and Potting, was won by Jenn Foster. Funds raised go to buy comfort items for the long-term patients in the health complex, things not covered by the health authority that make living in care a little easier.
