The Friends of Marion COA thanks event contributors

Aug 17, 2019

To the Editor: 

On Aug. 7, it really was a celebration at “An Evening on Sippican Harbor.” Our hostess invited us to share her fabulous waterfront view, surround porch and tented grounds, topped off with the most elegant Johnny on the Spot many attendees had ever seen. Over two-hundred attended the Friends of Marion’s COA fundraiser/celebration.  Following a hot and humid day, even the weather cooperated, with a welcomed Buzzards Bay breeze.

We are most appreciative of the many contributors…our hostess, the party planners, the canapé preparers, the participation of the Recreation Department for its heavy lifting, set-up and lifeguards, who helped to pass the food, and the shuttle van drivers.  There were many vendors who supported our evening with door prizes and needed services.

Thank you to all who attended and special thanks to Marion’s COA and Recreation Departments who worked tirelessly toward making our event a great success. 

While you may have missed the celebration and fundraiser, “An Evening on Sippican Harbor,” it’s not too late to support the Friends of the Marion COA in raising funds for the build-out of floor-to-ceiling walls crating required privacy for the COA’s existing office space.  Donations are welcomed to the Friends of Marion Council on Aging, P.O. 937, Marion, MA 02738.
