PARKMAN — Parkman Grange is running the SAD 4 Santa Program for 2017, helping families in the SAD 4 School District enjoy Christmas.

“Applications are already available at schools, town offices and libraries in the area and there are no specific eligibility requirements,” said Susan Manchester, master of the Grange in a press release. “We are trusting folks to decide whether they need help or can give it!”

The deadline for submitting applications is Nov. 25 so Grange volunteers have time to gather what is needed.

“Winter coats, boots and toys will be provided along with all the fixings for a turkey dinner, thanks to the Sangerville Masons,” Manchester noted. “Distribution is currently planned for Dec. 17.”

Donations can be sent to Parkman Grange Santa Project, P.O. Box 114, Guilford, ME 04443. The Grange will have Angel trees at KC’s store in Parkman and Hardwood Products, giving local folks a chance to buy actual gifts for children. The Grange, located at the corner of state highway 150 and North Dexter road, will serve up a hunters supper 4:30-6:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 18, with all proceeds benefiting the SAD 4 Santa Program. 

Manchester noted that the Grange is grateful to the Sangerville Masonic Lodge, United Bikers of Maine, Cambridge Cruisers, and Parkman Prowlers for their generous toy donations and support. Contact Parkman Grange Master Susan Manchester (277-3942) for more information about the project. SAD 4 includes the towns of Abbot, Cambridge, Guilford, Parkman, Sangerville, and Wellington.
