Rock 'n Roll Christmas Tree Auction coming soon! 🎸
Greetings from Weymouth!
We’re having a few crisp days of fall, but we are already planning for the promise of spring flowers. Sue Huston and a group of volunteers just planted hundreds more daffodil bulbs which will bring a burst of sunshine in the early spring. We thank the volunteer gardeners and those individuals and organizations that donated to this annual project.
On a sadder note, the Weymouth Holiday Festival: Miracles at Weymouth is cancelled for this year due to COVID restrictions and in an abundance of caution for the health and well-being of our staff, volunteers and the community. This large, outdoor, family-friendly event has already been rescheduled for next year! We look for an even better experience in 2021 and I thank the steering committee, Kathy Newcomb, Glenda Kirby and Mary Hilgenberg, the sponsors and all those organizations, vendors, volunteers, merchants, decorators who committed to this festival. We look forward to an even more exciting event next year.
But Weymouth does have some holiday cheer for you! A special Rock ‘n Roll Christmas Tree sponsored by Kvell Vodka is on display at Casino Guitars on Broad Street in Southern Pines. The tree comes with a Fender Stratocaster guitar, a PDP M5 Series drum kit, Ashten's Restaurant gift certificate, Godiva chocolates, and an extensive selection of Kvell Vodka! Auction site and more information about this Rock 'n Roll Christmas Tree coming in next week's Dispatch!
And for those of you who look forward every year to those marvelous home-baked Christmas cookies, the Women of Weymouth Baking Brigade has offered to bake and package their specialties for you to enjoy! Come on over on Saturday, December 12 from 10:30-1:30 and get some homemade goodies. Cash preferred!
Be certain to stop by Eye Candy Gallery and Framing for your copy of Frank Pierce’s limited signed and numbered print of Weymouth. There will only be 100 of these sold. You’ll automatically be entered into the drawing for the original of the painting! All proceeds and 15% of any framing related to those sales is donated directly to Weymouth.
Don’t forget our beautiful Christmas cards, based on a painting by artist and member, Ellen Burke, are for available for a donation of $20 for a package of 10 with envelopes. The perfect way to reach out to friends and relatives while supporting Weymouth. Please contact Marianna Grasso in our front office at firstname.lastname@example.org to order. She’ll have them packaged with your name on them for pick up.
Even as so many doors seem closed to us, we see how open our members and communities are to our support. I thank you for your dedication. I encourage you to take part in the above and to consider Weymouth in your end-of-year gift giving.
President, Friends of Weymouth Board of Directors
As we enter the last two months of the year, I ask that you be as generous as possible with your end-of-year gifts to Weymouth. You will be receiving communications about how you can help us in a way that makes an impact and that suits your budget. I truly believe that the future of Weymouth is our hands. Now, more than ever, What We Can Do Tomorrow Depends on What We Do Today.
