Cold out there this morning.  And it looks like snow.  Ah, winter in Maine. Here we go. And it's a week until Christmas, 2 weeks until New Year's. (Insert Good Riddance 2020 here) and then it'll be a month until the Q106.5 Egg Ride for Pine Tree Camp. Where's the historian to tell me what year it'll be for the Ride. 35th Annual?

The reason I bring up The Q106.5 Egg Ride now, is because Pine Tree Society has kicked off the Pine Tree Camp to You Holiday Celebration. Info on the activities here. And they are hoping to get $5,000 in donations. Reason for the timing, and the amount? A couple of donors have offered to match funds. Therefore this could turn into 'serious' money. If you can help out, here's where to make your donation. All funds go to camp, and to get matching funds, must be made by this Saturday.

More about the next Q106.5 Egg Ride early in the New Year.

However, here's more Pine Tree Camp fundraising news. Dysart's Restaurants on Broadway in Bangor and on Coldbrook Road in Hermon, has announced the $5 from every 9" Chicken Pot Pie sold through the end of the year will benefit Pine Tree Camp. Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

"The Pine Tree Camp is a one-of-a-kind place with a mission and purpose that is near and dear to the hearts of all Dysart's employees," said Tim Dysart, co-owner of Dysart's. "We have participated in the Q106.5 Egg Ride in the past and supported Pine Tree Camp in a variety of ways. Chicken Pot Pie is a big seller for us this time of year, so we thought we would use it as another opportunity to give back to such an incredible place,."

Sounds great, Tim. Thank you for all you do. Pine Tree Camp is a camp for people with physical disabilities and doesn't turn away campers for lack of funds.
