THOMASTON — “As the days get shorter and cooler, we know that fall is here, and inevitably winter will follow,” said Pope Memorial Humane Society, in a news release. “Though that means cold and snow, it also means the holidays!”
Start the season off with the annual Festival of Lights Craft Show hosted by Pope Memorial Humane Society. Two thousand twenty-one marks this Midcoast Maine tradition’s 41st year.
On Saturday, November 27, the show takes place at the Rockland Elks Lodge (210 Rankin St in Rockland), from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Admission is $2, and children under 12 are free. The Elks Lodge’s kitchen will be open and serving lunch for purchase.
Over 40 artists from all over the state of Maine will showcase unique one-of-a-kind products such as ornaments, jewelry, pottery, candles, clothing, holiday-themed items, and so much more. Additionally, there will be a silent auction, bake sale, and the opportunity to purchase the cookbook Recipes to the Rescue, a collection of recipes from the Pope Memorial Humane Society community.
“You will be sure to find something for everyone on your list and feel good about supporting local homeless animals this holiday season,” said Pope.
Proceeds from the Festival of Lights Craft show will go towards food, medicine, care, and shelter for homeless animals in Pope Memorial Humane Society’s care. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
