Hi All,
I hope this mailing finds everyone well. Just a few short items I'd like to share here.  
First. On Saturday December 8th from 10am to 3pm our Alleviating Hunger Committee will be holding a Stuff a Cruiser Event at the Mall in conjunction with the Westbrook Outlets.
We will be stuffing a Police Cruiser with new clothes for the needy in the area. If you will be in town that weekend please consider making a donation.
Please pass this message along to your membership and friends.
We had several members of the COB help with the harvesting of food at the Y vegetable garden this summer. This food goes to the Food Pantry at St. Marks. As the Y was very appreciative of our efforts The Alleviating Hunger Committee will be meeting with them this winter to determine what assistance they may need in the late spring and summer.
Work will begin soon planning the Towns new budget. We have been asked by the 1st Selectman to participate in providing input. We have discussed numerous areas that need addressing and we hope with the help of the Selectmen and the Finance Board some much needed projects (that suffered from lack of funding) can be funded this year. 
As always our members continue through the winter months to either sit on or attend many of our local board and committee meetings as well as those of other groups that may have and impact on our community.
Now that elections are over. As soon as we get new contact info for our State Government Officials we will update our Links section on our Website.
Please encourage your friends and members to visit our website.  westbrookcouncilofbeaches.org 
That's all for now.
On behalf of the Westbrook Council of Beaches. I would like to wish everyone a very happy and healthy Holiday Season.
