Belles of the Ball

A group of friends came to Saturday night’s 23rd Annual Poinsettia Ball to celebrate several of their 40th birthdays. ELLSWORTH AMERICAN PHOTO BY CHARLES EICHACKER
Shown (from left ) are Abigail Miller, Barrett Grimnes, Jayme Titus, Elizabeth Young, Kerryn Merrill, Rebecca Cross, Lauren Richardson, Kelly Fitzpatrick, Sue Stone and Carrie Kutney.
This year’s sold-out ball, sponsored by R.H. Foster and Machias Savings Bank, a benefit for Maine Coast Memorial Hospital, raised $50,000 for the purchase of a new anesthesia machine.
This annual event would not be possible without the support of our sponsors and volunteers. We extend a sincere thank you.
