Friday October 8th marks the third annual blood drive that has been organized in memory of Courtney DeWitt, a beloved local teenager who passed away in 2007. Her memory is still alive through her legacy and these events that help others to her honor. The blood drive is being held from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. at Wells Activity Center at 113 Sanford Rd., Wells, ME.
Courtney had been an engaging young lady who so beautifully balanced creativity through a promising interest in photography and athleticism through her enjoyment of sports-- especially basketball. Even at such a young age, she understood the importance of giving to others. She was quick to volunteer her time in the residential community at the Pavilion in Sanford.
To Courtney, life had been an adventure -- something her parents had instilled in her at a young age through taking trips to the Millinocket area, camping, playing sports, and watching the NASCAR races. She had loved to watch Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kasey Kahne the most!
Her energy had been contagious as she spent much of her time with her loving family and friends. She is sincerely missed by her adoring parents, Joleen and Corey DeWitt; her beautiful sister, Michaela; devoted grandparents; and her many, many friends and other family members.
In loving memory of Courtney J. DeWitt
September 21, 1991 - December 7, 2006
