Fans and families of Sanford Spartans Travel Team Basketball packed the stands last Saturday night at the Maine Celtics in Portland. Spartans Night is always a highlight of the season for the players, families and supporters. The night was even more special with Chace Fromwiller, one of the Sanford Spartans players being named Honorary Player of the Game as he starts his courageous “Frommies Fight” against DIPG, an aggressive form of brain cancer. Follow Frommie’s Fight on Facebook to learn how you can help.

Chace Fromwiller (wearing #21) was Honorary Player of the Game at the Maine Celtics game on January 22.

The Subway restaurants in Sanford and Springvale, and the Aroma Joe’s on Jagger Mill Road stopped by the Sanford-Springvale YMCA last Friday with a check for $4,032 raised during their December fundraising campaigns. This generous donation will help the Y provide programs and opportunities to individuals and families that foster youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

St. Thomas Council of the Knights of Columbus awarded Knight of the Month for January 2022 to Jeff Russell. For the past three years Jeff and his wife have been coordinating all activity at the St. Therese Food Closet. The food closet had 3,500 visits from single individuals and families last year. The food closet supplied from 15 pounds to 50 pounds of food for each visit. Some larger families received up to 70 pounds of food at a visit. About two-thirds of this food came from a government program known as the Emergency Food Assistance Program. The other third came from donations of food. The food closet also received cash donations from generous parishioners. Seventy percent of the food closet’s volunteer staff is made up of Knights of Columbus and their spouses. Congratulations to Jeff Russell, for his hard work and dedication to a vital program in our community.
