Forget Times Square, go to the "Clam Drop" in Yarmouth

Forget Times Square, go to the "Clam Drop" in Yarmouth

Yarmouth's First Universalist Church will hold Yarmouth's first ever Clam Drop on New Year's Eve. The Clam Drop will be similar to the ball lowering at Time Square in New York City. Steamer, Yarmouth's Clam Festival mascot will be lowered from the belfry of the First Universalist Church, 97 Main Street, at the stroke of midnight.

An earlier lowering will be held at 7:00 P.M. (mid-night Greenwich Mean Time) for families with children.

The event is open to the public, and all are welcome. There will be music, hot cocoa, cookies and a remembrance of Ken Nye, who was a greatly loved member of First Universalist and a prime supporter in the church's steeple renovation.

L.L.Bean Commits $150,000 to Hurricane Sandy Relief Effort

L.L.Bean Commits $150,000 to Hurricane Sandy Relief Effort

Freeport, ME., November 6, 2012 – L.L.Bean announced today a $150,000 commitment to relief efforts for children and families severely impacted by Hurricane Sandy.   Funds are being donated to Save the Children, an organization that provides families with food, supplies and medical care and helps communities rebuild through long-term recovery programs. 

Hurricane Sandy forced many families, including thousands of children, to flee their homes and seek refuge in shelters, according to reports by the Federal Emergency Management Authority (FEMA).  Save the Children, working with FEMA, the Red Cross, the city of New York and other partners, is creating safe play areas to help children begin to recover from disaster-induced emotional distress.
