"Kickstands up" for a great cause this July 22nd!

The 7th Annual Christmas in July fundraising event will be held on that Saturday at the Moosehead Trail Campground on Route 7 in Newport, between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m.  It's all to benefit the Greater Bangor Area Toys For Tots program, along with the 5th Annual Secret Santa Program in Hancock County.

Admission to the event is a new unwrapped toy!

Fire up the ride that morning beginning at 9 at the Mill Mall in Ellsworth. Riders will then make their way to the Moosehead Trail Campground.

Bands and musicians will begin to rock at 11.  There will be food for sale throughout the day along with silent and live auctions.

Area community members and business owners are encouraged to donate items for the auction.  If you can help or need more information about this event, call Don Clark at 667-2419, or, at 460-1121.
