A file photo from a Santa’s Helper visit. Little Cindy Lou Who is probably 15 years old now.
Annie “Elf Mama” Davis was a huge part of the Orange Community, For more than 20 years, she took the reigns of the OVFD Auxiliary’s Santa’s Helper program and helped bring joy to thousands of children and families across town.
While at home with her only son, Michael, on Monday, Sept. 23, Annie wasn’t feeling well and she passed out. Michael called 911 and his mom passed away at the hospital after having a heart attack.
The friends of Annie Davis would like to purchase a memorial bench for the Orange Fairgrounds with Annie’s name on it so she will never be forgotten.
The cost of the bench, with an engraved plaque and installation, is $1,500 and we need your help to make our goal.
Cookies and an Ornament
Annie’s Chocolate Chip Cookies were legendary around town. We are selling copies of the recipe, along with a chocolate chip cookie ornament for $3. All proceeds go toward the bench purchase. Contact Terri at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
You may mail monetary donations to Friends of Annie Davis, 131 Clark Street, Milford, CT 06460.
We have a short term designated bank account for this cause, with none of the regular fees for a couple of months. But $1,500 is a lot of money and even as the checks are deposited as they come in, we are hoping for a lot of community support to get Annie this bench.
We’d come closer to seeing it come to fruition if all the families that participated in the Santa’s Helper event over the years sent in a little something as a thank you to Annie for her dedication to you and the program.
Make out checks to “Friends of Annie Davis,” and mail to Friends of Annie Davis, 131 Clark Street, Milford, CT 06460.
THANK YOU if you already have donated!
