Winter Family Carnival – A Special Day for More Than 70 People

CHERRYFIELD, ME — On Saturday, February 29th, Maine Seacoast Mission and other groups held a Winter Family Carnival at the Mission’s Downeast Campus.

Here’s Wendy Harrington’s recap of the event.

Thank you for creating a wonderful day for families at the Winter Carnival. I was smiling the entire day watching children and parents playing, laughing, skating, building, listening to a story in English and Spanish, walking blindfolded through the woods, taking funny family portraits, eating tacos and chili and drinking the best hot chocolate in the world.

Our Winter Carnival, like the Downeast Roots Festival, is a snapshot of what Downeast Roots can create when we work together.

Thank you for sharing your Saturday, your wonderful activities, your enthusiasm and positive energy with us yesterday. Together we made a special day for more than 70 people.

With gratitude,
Wendy Harrington
