What we’ve been up to
USM ACSUM has had a busy end-of-the-year. November and December saw membership meetings in Portland and in Gorham. (Membership meetings are usually twice a year.)
Based on proposals at the Portland meeting, we had some successful activities.
We held a bake sale in Portland the last week of finals, bringing in $80+ for the chapter. Thanks to everyone who baked those really fabulous treats and who helped with the table.
We collected signatures on the Stand with Kids petitions to get more state money for public schools in Maine. If you haven’t signed yet, and would like to, Gail Wartell (in Abromson) has petitions through Jan. 10, so stop by and sign.
We also held a food drive for Wayside Food Programs and the Gorham Food Pantry. We collected an impressive amount of food to help our neighbors this winter. Thanks to everyone who donated, and also to those who found a places for collection boxes.
Happy New Year!
