York’s Annual Christmas in July is a weekend full of Family Activities beginning Friday, July 25th, 2014

July 23, 2014 2:00 AM

A highlight of the annual more than week long York Days is always the Christmas in July Lighting celebration during the Lighting of the Nubble.

Hundreds turn out to see the Nubble aglow in Christmas lights and to get a visit from Santa, who arrives atop a York Beach Fire engine.

Related Photo Galleries

This year’s Christmas in July Lighting of the Nubble is being held Sunday, July 27, at Sohier Park, starting with a concert by the Seacoast Wind Ensemble at 8 p.m.

The lights are also turned on after Thanksgiving, but many visitors to York aren’t in the area at that time.

As tourism is the economic driver of York, the importance of York Days cannot be underestimated, according to event organizer Robin Cogger. People book vacations to be here for York Days, Cogger said. Many call the day after York Days to plan their vacations for the next year, she said.

“It’s a bit of an economic boost,” Cogger said.

For instance, Cogger said, 10 teams of 15 players each have signed up to play co-ed softball. Many of the players are from out of town and staying in local motels, hotels and inns, she said. Almost all will certainly be dining in local restaurants or visiting area stores,she said.

York Days begins Friday, July 25 and end with a bang Sunday, Aug. 3, with the fireworks display in Short Sands Beach.

Something different this year is a raffle for a pre-lit, decorated Christmas tree, according to Cogger.

In the spirit of Christmas in July, and to raise money for the maintenance of the Nubble Lighthouse, the town’s Parks and Recreation Department is raffling a new, beautifully decorated, pre-lit 7-foot, 5-inch grand fir Christmas tree from Tree Classics, she said.

The tree typically retails for $1,049, according to Cogger. Tree Classics champagne ornaments that typically retail for $179 will adorn it, she said.

All of the raffle proceeds will go to maintaining Nubble Light, Cogger said.

Raffle tickets are five for $5 and will be available for sale throughout York Days at the Sohier Park Visitors Center at the Nubble, where the decorated tree being raffled will be on display.

The winning ticket will be drawn at the York Days Craft Fair, Sunday, Aug. 3.

Wells Ogunquit Center at Moody celebrates 10th anniversary

by www.Seacoastonline.com

WELLS — It was ten years ago that the Wells Ogunquit Center at Moody opened its doors at the gleaming new facility on Route 1 in Moody. Now, the board members, staff and volunteers are planning a three day celebration (July 18—20) to acknowledge a decade of service to the communities of Wells and Ogunquit.

“It seems like you just turn around and it’s been 10 years,” said WOCAM treasurer and founder June Messier.

The three-day event kicks off on Friday evening, July 18, and culminates on Sunday afternoon, July 20, from 1 to 5 p.m. with an anniversary ceremony and social event. The ceremony will highlight organizations and individuals that have contributed greatly to the center’s existence over the years.

“We’re going to do a brief ceremony because it’s important to acknowledge what we’ve accomplished,” said board member and founder Kathy Chase. “The success and growth of this place is something we really need to share. We want to announce to the world that what they thought would not work not only worked but has been a huge success and contributor to our community. People with life experience want a place to share that experience, make new friends and contribute to the community. That’s what the center is.”

Festivities begin on Friday, July 18, with tours of the facility and refreshments from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. The highlight of the first day is a Murder Mystery Dinner Theater, from 5 to 8 p.m., featuring the center’s Applause for a Cause players, and a dinner of meatloaf, salad, fixings and dessert. Reservations in advance are $20; admission at the door is $25.

“It’s a ‘sophisticated’ murder mystery,” Chase, one of the players, said. “We had a little bit tougher time pulling this one together.”

“All the comedy is in our asides,” Messier said.

Saturday begins with the popular and long standing pancake breakfast from 8 to 11 a.m. For $5, you get all you can eat pancakes, with sausages, orange juice and coffee. The highlight of the day is an art show from 1 to 4 p.m., featuring the work of the center’s art instructor Bob Hastie, as well as the works of many of the students in Hastie’s class.

“We do an art class every Monday afternoon,” Chase said. “Bob Hastie and Virginia Souza will host the show, and Bob will do demonstrations on Saturday.”

[dealy +4 days]

The day incudes music by local singer and pianist David Hollis.

Everything then builds to Sunday’s culmination, with refreshments and tours in the early afternoon prior to the actual ceremony.

“We will present three lifetime achievement awards,” Chase said. “It’s for those organizations and people that have gone above and beyond from the beginning.”

The weekend concludes with music after the ceremony from the group Coastal Capers.

All in all, there’s good reason to celebrate, Chase said.

“Three part-time people and oodles of volunteers have made this place successful,” she said. “It’s of the seniors, by the seniors, and for the seniors. We raise all our own funds; there’s no money from any government entity.”

Messier agreed. “The businesses in town are so supportive,” she said.

The event is open to the public. FMI call 646-7775.
