Be an Angel: Looking to the Christmas Season, the Westside Food Pantry will be organizing Christmas Dinners in cooperation with the Southwest Harbor Food Mart.  We are also beginning the process of signing up our client’s children for the Angel Tree.  This heartwarming project that is sponsored by the First National Bank has become a Westside holiday tradition.  Please stop in to the Main Street branch of “The First” to choose a name (and become someone’s Angel).
