The Higgins Beach Association recently held a 'welcome back' supper for its members, a time to catch up on what's been happening here and away. The annual event included a silent auction for which members of the neighborhood association collected great prizes from local artists and businesses. With good-natured and spirited bidding, members of the HBA raised a very generous donation for Project GRACE. While much of the gift is designated for fuel assistance, a portion of the gift will be used to help the Community Garden grow. Thank you, neighbors!
