Help the ‘Skowhegan Indian’ with Your Unwanted Christmas Gifts
Did you get any gifts for Christmas you know you’ll never use? Well, how about putting those unwanted presents to a good cause in a benefit for the Skowhegan Indian Restoration Project.
Cory King, executive director of the Skowhegan Area Chamber of Commerce, told the Morning Sentinel that about $5,000 is still needed for the $65,000 restoration project. Work is set to begin this summer.
The sculpture was erected in 1969 off Madison Avenue. It’s located behind what is now Cumberland Farms.
The benefit auction will be on Saturday, March 1, at the American Legion Post 19 on Waterville Road, from 9 am to noon. The $2 admission to the auction gets you a sheet of 25 tickets. Additional tickets can also be bought for $5 for a bundle of 10.
You can drop off your donations for the auction at Skowhegan Main Street, 93B Water St., right above The Bankery.
