Yvonne Hayward and her daughter, Andie, are hosting the "2nd Annual Downeast Christmas Angel Pageant!" on Saturday, December 9, at 2:00 p.m. at the Milbridge Elementary School.
Andie has helped with Let's All Have a Merrier Christmas for the past several years, and it is very near and dear to her heart. It was actually Andie's idea to host a pageant to help raise funds and toys for the children on our list.
Andie and her team raised over $2,500 and over 100 toys to donate last year. WOW!!!
It was a HUGE amount of work, but they are determined to do it again this year!

Downeast Christmas Angel Pageant
WARNING -- Cuteness Overload!!
Just spoke with Jimmy Emerson. His 4-year-old son, Brady (quite the little entrepreneur) has his own little business, called "Brady's Place." He sells tote bags, homemade applesauce, jams & jellies, and other things. He decided, all on his own, that he wants to donate $2 from every tote bag he sells at craft fairs and online between now and December 2. How precious is that?!
He will be at the Shop-a-Palooza at the Harrington Elementary School tomorrow, November 5, and he will also be at the Jonesport Elementary School Craft Fair on November 11. Stop by and shop at Brady's Place.
You can also order from him on his Facebook page (see link below)
Remember, for every tote bag you buy from him, he is going to donate $2 to Let's All Have a Merrier Christmas!
