Cookies With Santa Volunteers

Thomaston Grammar School Cookies with Santa

Thomaston Grammar School held its annual Cookies with Santa event on Saturday, December 3rd. It was the first time we have been able to hold this event since December of 2019.  We had a great turnout for this fun event.  This year, thanks to Green Leaf Roofing, it was free for all TGS students and their siblings to shop for 5 gifts for family and friends.  We had some volunteer shoppers who took students shopping so the gifts could remain a surprise to family members.  In addition to students shopping and getting their gifts wrapped, students and their families got to meet and have their photo taken with Santa at the photo booth run by Principal Riley, and were able to enjoy some cookies and cocoa/coffee.  Raffle tickets were also sold at the event, to fund future events, with some great prizes including a side table, bowl and bird house from the Prison Showroom, a one-night stay at the Hampton Inn in Thomaston, two cutting boards from Midcoast Carpentry, a gift card to Loyal Biscuit, and a gift card to Walmart.  We also had support from Hannaford, Shaw's and Flipside.  We are so lucky to have such generous organizations in our community.  We had an amazing group of volunteers including: parents and other family members, community members, and OMS and OHS students.  What a marvelous event it was!
