Shelley’s Flowers & Gifts will host a public fundraiser for the Waldoboro Food Pantry. On Nov. 18 from 3 to 7 p.m. the public is invited to come and participate in this fun-filled community spirit night.

Local community business people will be the design contestants. Each designer will be given the same flowers and container to create their own holiday design.

The design-off will be held from 4 to 5 p.m. Friends, neighbors and co-workers are invited to come and vote for their favorite design. Voting will begin at 5 p.m. and each vote will cost $1. The voting proceeds will benefit the Waldoboro Food Pantry.

Shoppers will enjoy viewing the designs, sampling homemade desserts and adult beverages. There will also be a 20 percent shoppers discount.

The public is encouraged to attend community spirit night and help support the local food pantry. For more information contact Shelley’s Flowers at 832-6312 or

On Saturday, Nov. 20, Shelley’s will host an open house with refreshments, face painting, cookie decorating, visits with Santa and horse-drawn carriage rides. Santa will arrive at 11 a.m. and be available to visit until 2 p.m. This would be a great time to take pictures with Santa and have a carriage ride.
