On Thursday 12, September 22nd, volunteers from area Shaw's
Supermarkets came to Chebeague to volunteer at the Rec Center.
They volunteered thru United Way; 4 times per year they get out
into the community for such organizations. At the Rec
they worked with 5 or 6 Chebeaguers sprucing up the landscaping, weeding the gravel paths and planting areas, and cleaning up fences - contuing work that was started by a crew of Chebeague volunteers earlier this summer. Chebeaguers showered the Shaw's folks with homemade muffins at coffee break, and, with a great lunch (including Linda Ewing's "Texas pepper pasta" for lunch!). Then we took them on a driving tour of the island, where they recognized many of their island customers.
Next time you're shopping at Shaw's, say "thanks" for their great volunteer work at the Rec!
