Sledding by the seashore




Above, Kristie Wilson and her daughter Maci, 3, of Saco, joined residents and visitors alike for sledding on Old Orchard Street Friday, Feb. 23. The event kicked off a weekend of events as part of the Winter Carnival sponsored by OOB 365, residents and businesses that host events in Old Orchard Beach. Right, Cami Blatchford, 12, of Old Orchard Beach, awaits atop the sledding hill in her fourth year visiting the carnival. She’s helped on the left by Jesse Emmons and on the right by Jeff Holmes, both of Milestone Recovery on Portland Avenue. Emmons said community involvement is a part of transitioning to life outside the recovery facility. See more photos on page 6.
