We're Up and Running!

We started the show on Saturday night and had a great turn-out! We are running nightly, Sunday through Thursday 5-9 pm and Friday and Saturday 5-10 pm until Christmas.
Thank you to all of the wonderful volunteers that have signed up to help with traffic, questions, and to help hand out candy canes. We couldn't do it without the support of volunteers, our neighbors, our community, and family and friends. Thank you!
We have a donation box at the end of the driveway for cash or check donations to Make A Wish of Maine. Together we can make wishes come true!
When you plan on visiting, please be considerate of our wonderful neighbors and do not block any driveways.
Thank you, drive safe and have a Merry Christmas!

A visit to Make-A-Wish

Last night we visited the Portland Make-A-Wish office to drop off your donations. It is always a humbling experience to go there and see all of the pictures on the wall and signs and letters from wish recipients and their families. I hope you all know that you DO make a difference in the children's lives and their families. Every donation, no matter how big or small, goes towards a magical experience and wonderful memories made for these very deserving families.

After recounting all of the money, a last minute donation, and the boys emptying the change out of their piggy bank (their choice of course, I am a proud mom!)...the grand total was...


We were so excited and wish that every person who put a donation in that little metal box at the end of the driveway could be standing right there with us!
