There is a nominal donation of $5 per adult to help cover the cost of mixers, etc. After dinner we will exchange gifts provided by the trustees and have a Christmas sing-along.  Please come to enjoy this old-fashioned Christmas!

CHRISTMAS PARTY: This could be considered a high point of the social calendar, even though many of our summer residents do not get to attend. In recent years  it has taken the form of a potluck dinner preceded by a BYOB cocktail hour. The event is held at the Hawthorne house, which is decorated with a large tree, fresh cut balsam branches and candles. After an excellent meal we sing carols and present gifts donated by our trustees.

STRAWBERRY FESTIVAL: By long tradition, the Hawthorne Community Association welcomes Raymond cape area residents to the start of each summer season with a “Strawberry Festival”, generally held in mid to late June at the Hawthorne house.  It is an opportunity to greet old friends and meet new ones, while enjoying one of the classic summer treats with fresh shortcake, strawberries and real whipped cream.

CHICKEN BBQ: Thanks to the generosity of the VanWinkles, proprietors of the Wohelo summer camp, the Association celebrates the high season of summer and also holds its only all-members meeting at Little Wohelo camp on the shore of Sebago Lake each year in mid-August.
