Holiday Magic On Sale Now!  Christmas In Maine 25th Anniversary CD/DVD Back On Sale

November 4, 2013

A "must-have" for any lover of music, Maine and/or the holidays, the 25th Anniversary Christmas In Maine Live from the Gracie Theater CD/DVD is on sale once again at most Maine credit unions just in time for the holidays.  This "one-of-a-kind" concert was filmed last November at the Gracie Theater at Husson College and features holiday classics from a wide-range of artists with Maine ties.  In the two weeks it was available last year, nearly 1,000 copies were sold. 

On sale for only $19.99 each, which includes the CD and DVD of the 90-minute show, $6 from each CD/DVD sold goes to the Maine Credit Unions' Campaign for Ending Hunger.  The brainchild of long-time Maine songwriter and musician, Con Fullam, who wrote the Maine Christmas Song and has written for a number of well-known national artists, this CD/DVD represents an opportnity for Fullam to give back.  Fullam explained, "This is a rare opportunity to capture the spirit of Maine at the holidays and help a great cause.  I grew up in Sidney, Maine, and my family struggled and, if not for the help of neighbors and the community, we would have gone hungry.  I have never forgotten that and this is one way to give back to others.  What the credit unions in Maine are doing to help end hunger is truly inspiring and if this helps raise some more money then it's worth it."

Hosted by Maine comedian and storyteller, Tim Sample, and former Maine Public Broadcasting executive and musician, Suzanne Nance, the special not only includes great music but also features the sharing of holiday memories.  Artists performing include: Jonathan Edwards; Noel Paul Stookey; Melanie Dorice Saucier; John McVeigh; Joan Kennedy and Dan Merrill; Rick Charette; Paul Sullivan; Maggie Coffin and Cast; Con Fullam and The Windham Chamber Singers; The Daponte String Quartet; and Suzanne Nance.

"This will make a special gift for everyone, especially Mainers now living elsewhere.  Holiday memories are special and this CD/DVD lets listeners and viewers relive memories from holidays gone by and share new ones with family and friends and, the best part of all, proceeds from sales will go to help Maine's credit unions raise funds for ending hunger," stated Jon Paradise, AVP of Governmental & Public Affairs for the Maine Credit Union League.
