For this year’s “Marshwood Makes a Difference Day” Lindor/Lindt Chocolate donated chocolate for Marshwood Middle School students and staff to melt down and make lollipops for the Wounded Heroes of Maine Project. The students and staff also made individual cards of encouragement and small origami packets for the lollipops.
The Wounded Heroes of Maine coordinator found a special use for most recent batch of lollipops and cards. Forty-three veterans were taken on a very special fishing trip. They left from the beautiful Nonantum in Kennebunkport. But before leaving, they were served donated meals of steak and lobster, Maine blueberry pies, Maine ice cream, corn on the cob and more. Everyone received a goodie bag that included a MMS lollipop and card. Before they headed out on the boats, the veterans were told who had made the cards and lollipops. They applauded and clearly enjoyed that very personal touch.
Thank you MMS!
