Thanks to the greater Chebeague Island community, the Chebeague Recreation Center had another very successful Winter Festival.

The strong Easterly breeze kept us from having a bon fire,  thankfully, Hartley and Dianne Brewer kept the Boat House warm and the participants were able to dress inside! Thanks guys!  Also thank you to Rich Brewer, Marlene Bowen and the Rescue Crew, Doug Ross, Skip Dyer, and the Hyde School students who helped raise money for the Teen Center.  We don't have a final dollar amount , but pledge estimates put us over $7,000.!

Thanks go to over 30 volunteers for helping with the Chowder/Chili/Soup/Lasagna/Hot dog/PB&J Luncheon at the Rec Center after the swim.  We thank the sweets cooks, the servers, the set-up and clean- up crews and the entrants in the Chowder/Chili/Soup competition.  Each and every entry was worthy of a prize.
