Shortcake thanks



To the Editor:

The Mount Desert Island High School Guatemala studies and service class would like to thank some generous members of our community for their help with our fundraising efforts this past Wednesday. Thank you to George Seavey and Spencer at Acadia Towing for their wonderfully generous help with our parade float. George donated his truck, his time, decorations and even candy to our entry, and all with grace and ease.

Thank you to Wendy Strong, area manager of Performance Foodservice who made significant donations to our strawberry shortcake booth. Dave Schroeder volunteers his time each year with our preparations and without his help, we would be lost. Mohr Signs donated our beautiful banners for the parade and beyond, which help us spread the word about this program.

It’s so heartening to have folks like these in our community and we are extremely grateful!

Our class includes Dawson Burnett, Rachel Carignan, Maggie Collins, Nick Duley, Maddy Good, Oliver Johnston, Ryan Kelly, Julia Link, Chase McGee, Madison Neale, Brigitte Olearcek, Quincy Rozeff, Maggie Strong, Rachelle Swanson, Hannah Viechnicki and Isabella Wellman-Webster.
