This past Christmas season, Hugh Edwards hosted his annual Christmas party. Many members of the community were in attendance, including our very own superintendent, Nancy Santilli. This gathering of people was not only to celebrate the season of giving but also helps to support a local food pantry, Bainbridge Area Food for Friends. Many guests from the area attended the party, bringing their own donations of food and money to support our community. 653 lbs of donations in total were brought in to help out as well as $870. The party itself has been around for a while, but the collection of donations for the food pantry has been going on for just the past ten years when the economy initially took a turn for the worse.
