Terrific Teens

Bethany Pratt and Lars Borchers raised just less than $600 through a 50/50 raffle at a Maine Mariners game with help from friends at Freeport High School and Mt. Ararat. The money will directly support school outdoor programs: It’s enough to get eight kids downhill skiing for the day or a weekend whitewater rafting trip for an entire high school outdoor club.
