Ready to ring in the holidays

(Left to right) Robert Foster, president of R.H. Foster, Bette Pierson, event co-chairwoman, and Larry Barker, lresident and CEO of Machias Savings Bank, are among those ready to “Ring in the Holidays” at the 25th Annual Poinsettia Ball on Saturday, Dec. 3, at 5:30 p.m. at the Ellsworth Ramada. Proceeds from this year’s event will benefit new three-dimensional mammographic imaging technology at Maine Coast Memorial Hospital. Research has shown 3D digital mammography finds significantly more invasive breast cancers and reduces the number of false alarms. Red poinsettias will adorn the 16-foot-tall tree that gives this event its name, and the meal will be presented by Chipper’s Restaurant and Catering. Tickets are $125 per person.
