Would you like to be a part of the Sanford Backpack Program’s 2021 Box of Joy campaign? Last year, SBP volunteers and generous community members were able to fill almost 300 boxes with items for families in need – see photo above. They already have over 150 gift-wrapped boxes ready for sponsors to fill in November! Fill boxes as a family, as a work family, as friends, or as an organization! This is a “feel good” project that you won’t regret being a part of. Please contact Grace Davie at email@example.com or Jennifer Paquin Davie at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (207) 608-9601 to sign up and get a box to fill.

Due to circumstances, Sanford Maine Stage will not be doing “A Christmas Carol” this season. Instead, they have added “Scrooge With A Twist.” It is more lighthearted and not so somber. It has a Greek Chorus, carolers and a more “loveable” Scrooge ( is that possible ? ) …..it’s a different show, but with the same message. Auditions will be held at the Nasson Little Theatre in Springvale from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. on October 7 and 9. Show dates will be December 4 and 11 at 7:00 p.m., and December 5 and 12 at 2:30 p.m. Teens are welcome to audition. Email email@example.com for more info.
