A celebration was held at the First Parish Church on February 2nd to thank Sue Rowe for her many years of service to what is now the Yarmouth Community Food Pantry.
Sue will soon step down from her managing role, and a team of volunteers is in the process of being assembled to take on the many roles she has so ably filled.
Over $1,500 worth of food was donated to the Food Pantry in her honor, and the following plaque will be hung on the wall of the Yarmouth Community Food Pantry.
The annual Yarmouth Cares campaign has begun! Please consider a donation to support all of the Yarmouth Cares About Neighbors (YCAN) programs including:
Yarmouth CAN is a 501(c)(3) private, non-profit, all-volunteer organization, so your contributions are eligible to be tax deductible under Maine and Federal law.

Sue Rowe, Rae Garcelon, and Jean Rafford set up for the Volunteer Luncheon for the Rides Program and the Food Pantry.
Over 25 volunteers showed up to enjoy each other, delicious food, and lively discussions about how to make the programs even stronger.
Help is needed with the harvest at the Yarmouth Community Garden every Tuesday and Saturday from 8am to 10am. No experience is necessary! Please see this poster for more information.
Now that the holiday season of 2014 has come to an end, we would like to thank all the many people in Yarmouth who helped others have a few more things to celebrate last month.
Thanks to the many, many kind donations of food or funds to the food pantry, as well as the numerous volunteer hours that went into sorting food, preparing food baskets, and helping with distribution, the Yarmouth Community Food pantry provided holiday meals for 292 adults as part of Project Holiday.
And, thanks to the many, many donations of gifts and volunteer hours, the Project Holiday team supplied holiday gifts to 109 children from 46 families.
Thank you to all who helped by donating space, food, gifts, time, and/or funds! Yarmouth is a town that cares about its neighbors… Thank YOU!
