Each year, the Scarborough-based Libby-Mitchell American Legion Post 76 baseball team sells Scarborough-theme Christmas ornaments. This year, the illustrated bulbs honored the North Scarborough Grange, now in its 95th year.

Next year, the bulbs will honor a former Scarborough-based aviation flight school from the l920s with a building that got handed down to Libby-Mitchell Post for current use. Charles Lindbergh made a flight nearby in the late l920s.

We made about $600 profit from the sale of the bulbs, and $300 of it was given to local charities. The players gave $l00 checks to the Salvation Army, the Bruce Roberts Toy Fund and

the Good Sheperd Food Bank.

Thank you to Scarborough High players Kevin Chamberlain, Jim Rouse and Chris Bernard for their involvement with this project.

All organizations receiving donations from our baseball team serve needy people in southern Maine.

We want to thank the following businesses for acting as “sales agents” for the bulbs throughout the holiday season:

Robin Thurston, State Farm Agency; Saco & Biddeford Savings Institution; Jeff Worthing, CPA; Rick Murphy, Linsco Private Ledger Investments; Shirley’s Hallmark Store; Konica Photo-Focused on You Shop; Jordan Floral; Brown Fox Printing;
