East Haddam - posted Nov, 01 2013
EAST HADDAM- All civic-minded individuals/groups are welcome to donate a decorated holiday tree, wreath, exhibit, gift or gift certificate for auction. All proceeds from this community-wide fund raiser will go to The East Haddam Fuel Bank, Food Bank and Youth and Family Services. Over the last five years of holding this event, the East Haddam Community Lions with your help have donated in excess of $28,000 to these causes. The donated items will be exhibited in Rathbun Free Memorial Library, from Nov. 25 – Dec. 6. During this time, advertising and a catalog will be distributed. A silent auction will take place (viewers can bid on exhibits anytime during this period). A Holiday Reception, open to all, will be held on Friday, Dec. 6 from 7-9 p.m., where final bids will take place. All donations will be acknowledged in the program and again on signage where exhibits are displayed. Contact Lion Linda Bradshaw, 860-873-8933 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Lion Mary Lee Abkeneirer at 860-873-9776 or at email@example.com.
