To the Editor:
The Sippican Woman’s Club of Marion would like to thank you and all the members of the Woman’s Club for contributing to the success of our recent Holiday House tour. Without the effort of so many members, from those who decorated Handy’s Tavern ‘Festival of Trees,’ to members who served as hostesses at the homes and at the tea, and to all the students from ORR, Bishop Stang and Tabor Academy who volunteered, this celebration would not be possible. As you know, the proceeds of this tour enable the Club to award several scholarships to local students attending college.
I would also like to extend a special thank you to the five Marion homeowners who so graciously opened their beautiful houses to tour. The following florists – Farrissey Floral Design, Garden of Eden, Sowle the Florist, Inc., Bunny’s Bouquets and Rhonda Robitaille – all worked with the homeowners to transform the houses into beautiful holiday showcases. Thank you to the Marion General Store, The Bookstall, Serendipity by the Sea and Isabelle’s for helping with ticket sales and to Eastern Bank for letting us have a display in the Marion branch.
I have to also thank Sean Cormier, the Marion DPW and Village Sign who came to our rescue after gale force winds blew down our banner!
Again, thank you to all, Happy Holidays and see you next year!
Mary L. Verni, President
Sippican Woman’s Club
