NORWAY — The Heywood Club (1903-present) on Crockett Ridge in Norway will again this year be holding our ‘Lights of Love’ Christmas Tree Fundraiser. We have a special mission in our needs to keep the club in good condition. We need to have the sill on the backside of the clubhouse replaced, as it is in very bad shape. We have had an estimate from a firm that specializes in the restoration of old buildings. It is quite a project and comes at a big price.

So we are asking for help with this project by purchasing a light for our tree, located at the four corners of Crockett Ridge, in memory of someone special. Lights are $5 each and will be lit between Dec. 3 through the 31st. Checks can be made out to ‘The Heywood Club’ and sent to Barbara Townsend, 475 Crockett Ridge Road, Norway, ME, 04268. Thank you for any donation you can make.
