A notice to our community members regarding COVID-19

Updated May 5th, 2020

Dear Neighbors – WE NEED YOUR HELP

We are in challenging times!

In an effort to be able to assist people who have/are going to be affected by Covid-19, there is a group in Heatherton, Pomquet and St Andrews that are planning an on line auction to raise funds to buy groceries, pay utility bills or pay for transportation for people that need to get to medical appointments out of town. There will be request for help with things we cannot even think of now. An on-line auction is very similar to a silent auction but is done on line.

We will be calling you the community, to ask if you have anything you might be able to donate to the auction. It could be a basket of baked goods, donations of lobster, load of gravel, basket of tupper ware products, house cleaning, home cooked meals for say 5 or 6 people, gift certificates, music lessons, home made wood products, Christmas trees(to be picked up in the fall), couple of hours of services like carpentry, painting, electrician, welding, plumber, grocery cards, gas cards, haircuts, etc. The list is endless.

We are looking for prizes worth $25.00 and up.

If you have anything you would like to donate or have a question. Please call:
