$uper Fanta$tic Fundrai$er benefit sale for Island Commons

 Over $9,000 dollars was raised Saturday to benefit Island Commons.  Donations (totalling over 2,500 absolutely amazing items) from 78 households and organizations helped to make this truly the BEST and BIGGEST sale ever.  An event of this ilk and scope takes many dedicated volunteers, a great deal of hard work, and diverse skills.  For 10 months Pommy received, cleaned when necessary, tagged, packed up, and stored the various donated items. On Friday, a transport/unpacking/set-up crew of 14 people with 4 trucks worked 59 volunteer hours.  On Saturday - before, during, and after the sale - 22 people and 3 trucks worked an additional 94 volunteer hours.  This profitable, quality fundraising event is but one example of the wide and enthusiastic support for Chebeague's unique assisted living home, Island Commons.  Thank you all - donors, buyers, and volunteers!
