Santa's visit to local firm helps kids at Shining Tree

December 30, 2007

On Dec. 15, Santa Claus brought smiles to the staff of Bowers Marine Sales Inc. and those who enjoyed his company. Santa's visit was sponsored by the Leitersburg Ruritan.

Santa listened to the wishes of all, as he sat upon a new red Pro Team 190 TX Bass Tracker boat decked out in holiday decor, including a Christmas tree.

All voluntary contributions went to Boats, Bikes & Bowers, a fund designed to give the children of Shining Tree Children's Home special birthday presents and regular events and outings.

On Dec. 16, the Bowers Marine Sales team from Hagerstown joined the rest of the company at Duke's Riverside in Wormleysburg, Pa., for the company Christmas party.

Said one staff member, "One of the best parts of the trip was the ride in the van to Wormleysburg. We shared gag gifts and funny Christmas stories, jokes and riddles the whole trip. My face hurt from laughing."

The next event is planned for Monday, Jan. 7, from 5 to 7 p.m., when Bowers Marine Sales will host a "Toast to the New Year" to show appreciation to its customers, community and the boys of Shining Tree. Call 301-790-1848 to RSVP.
