“Ugly” Sweater Day! December 15
Get into the spirit and wear your merriest, most memorable holiday sweater to work, to school or around town Friday December 15th and help to make Ellsworth the most spirited city in Maine.
Every year around the holidays, most offices and schools have a day when employees and students wear those fun reindeer and Santa sweaters that we all pretend to hate! The Ellsworth Chamber found out that there is a “National Ugly Sweater Day” and its scheduled this year for Friday December 15th. So, we are challenging all our members, schools and community to
“don our gay apparel” and be THE most spirited city in Maine, all on one day this year, Friday December 15th. The Chamber checked with Guinness Book of World records and there is a single venue record for holiday sweater wearing, but currently there is no multi venue record. “We have contacted the venerable records book organization for an application, but they did inform us that this time of year, due to year end records, we were unlikely to hear from them for several weeks.” stated Gretchen Wilson Director of the Chamber. “Regardless, we know the City of Ellsworth can hold the unofficial record for Maine this year”.
The Chamber has teamed up with local radio station STAR 97.7 as their media partner. Both the Ellsworth Chamber Facebook page and the STAR 97.7 page will feature as many photos as we can of local businesses and their great sweaters. Businesses can also combine sweater wearing with a food drive or other community event. It’s up to each business or organization how to have fun with the day. So, get in the spirit, wear your finest sweater December 15th. Take pictures, take a count of people wearing and let the chamber know! Happy National Ugly Sweater Day!!
