Happy Valentine's Day!
Hope you have a nice day today with the special people in your life.
It is looking like a winter wonderland out there and while the white stuff is beautiful, the storm last weekend caused two postponements in Londonderry.
The Winter Wonderland Fundraising Festival, which is the first of two fundraising events planned for Stephanie Baker, is postponed until March 3 starting at 9 a.m.
Baker, 31, has been a resident of the Londonderry area for about three years and was recently diagnosed with the rare Castleman’s disease, a disease of lymph nodes and related tissues.
For more information about the fundraiser, call Abby at 662-3269.
The Gospel Jamboree, hosted by the Londonderry Station Community Church, is also postponed until a later date in April. Stay tuned for details.
A fundraising breakfast/brunch is planned for Feb. 23 at the Londonderry Community Centre. The home cooked pancake and bacon brunch includes coffee, tea or juice for $5 a plate and will run from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
This event is being organized by friends and co-workers of Baker from the Masstown Market, and all proceeds will be given in support of her fight against a rare life threatening disease.
Don't miss out on famous Londonderry hospitality and all for a good cause.
A Londonderry coffee house is just around the corner and set to take place on Feb. 24 at the Londonderry Community Centre from 1 to 5 p.m.
It's all about folk, popular and some original music. Should be a fabulous time with Mike Kilburn, Mitch Whalen, Frank & Duncan, and The Backyard Bangers.
Admission is $1 with snacks and refreshments available. All proceeds go to the Londonderry Community Centre.
For more information, call Eric at 662-3617. Come out and enjoy an afternoon of entertainment.
