NSPN Supports MITA - And Others!


Recommended Posts

As many of you are aware, NSPN is a club supporter of the Maine Island Trail Association (www.mita.org), a non-profit association that developed and continues to maintain a network of islands from Kittery up to the border of Canada - all available for day or overnight use.

As a club supporter, we have adopted two islands in Casco Bay for beach cleaning and trail maintenance, and try to fundraise for MITA as well. Many of us have visited this jewel in our backyard numerous times for day or overnight trips.

Our annual holiday party raffle is the way we raise money for MITA. Last year, we stepped it up a bit, soliciting donations from local vendors - with great success! We had dry tops, wool socks, several paddles and more! We are doing that again this year, and hope to have some great raffle prizes to offer.

How Can You Help?

Many club members are talented artists - whether they make their living through art or practice it as a hobby. We'd like to ask that members consider donating a small piece of their artwork to the raffle. It could be a wood carving, framed photograph, needlepoint, painting - whatever. We will provide a donation letter for tax purposes and if you have brochures or business cards, we will display them with your piece.

I hope everyone will consider this opportunity to support MITA. Please contact me at cathy folster at verizon dot net or via PM if you would like to donate or have questions.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the holiday party (Dec 6th) and viewing the talent of our club as well!

Just an update - at the last board meeting, the Board voted to split the funds raised from the holiday party raffle among MITA, Maine Coast Heritage Trust (www.mcht.org) and Salem Sound Coastwatch (www.salemsound.org).

Please join as at the party and take a chance on winning some great raffle prizes.
