Milbridge, Maine – The annual Winter Festival and Auction hosted by Women for Healthy Rural

Living (WHRL) will kick off on Saturday, December 2nd, with a visit from the Grinch!

The Winter Festival and Auction is one of WHRL’s largest fundraisers of the year. Participants can bid on festive trees, wreaths, and fabulous holiday gift boxes created by local businesses and community members. The auction includes everything from whimsical to elegant winter and holiday items.

Half the items are available in ticket raffles, the others in an online silent auction. All items will be on display during the festival’s open hours.

The one and only Mr. Grinch will make a special appearance on Saturday, December 2nd, from 10 am to Noon.

Children can take pictures with Mr. Grinch and receive a free Grinch holiday coloring book (while supplies last).

The Grinch is having a change of heart this year and is collecting toys for needy children. Bring a new, unwrapped toy for the Toy Drive!

Monday from 10:30 am to 3 pm, and Tuesday from 10:30 am to 6 pm.
