Wreaths and Sweets Help the Hearth

Julie Toland, left, and Sara Chadwick, longtime wreath event volunteers, put finishing touches on a tabletop tree, one of the many decorative items that will be for sale in the Easton’s Beach Rotunda on Saturday, Dec. 3, from 9 a.m. till noon at the 16th annual Lucy’s Hearth Designer Wreath & Bake Sale. The wreaths, holiday greens, and tabletop decorations are all volunteer-made. At the food table the pies, breads, cookies, candies, jams and dessert sauces, all homemade as well, are fit for a designer sweet tooth. Proceeds from the sale support the families and programs at the Hearth, which for 32 years has been providing shelter, security and a window to the future for Aquidneck Island women and children in crisis. The sale marks the end of a milestone year for the nonprofit organization, which in mid- October moved into its new home at 19 Valley Road in Middletown. (Photo by Meri Keller)
