Homelessness Awareness and Giving Thanks

Kicking off Thanksgiving week, the CVC is excited to report that they are over two-thirds of the way to their goal of $10,000 to support the Mid-Maine Homeless Shelter, as part of the MMHS's "Breaking Ground, Rebuilding Lives" campaign.  If you were unable to attend the panel on youth homeless last Thursday, click here for a link to the podcast.  And while you are enjoying time with family and friends in the coming days, we hope you will give thanks for all that you have and pause to reflect on the challenges facing those less fortunate.  Homelessness Awareness Month events will continue after the break, but remember that you can support the campaign no matter where you are by making a contribution online.

In The Community

6th Annual Waterville Parade of Lights
Friday, November 25, at 6 p.m.
Main Street, Waterville

Downtown Waterville's annual holiday parade, held the evening after Thanksgiving, has drawn thousands of families to Main Street for many years and serves as a fun and festive kickoff to the holiday season. What better time of the year to get together and show our community spirit and support for one another.  The parade will begin at the north end of Main Street in Downtown Waterville and end at Castonguay Square with the lighting of the giant spruce.  If you are sticking around campus for Thanksgiving break, check out this festive community event.  Organized by Waterville Main Street.
