Make-A-Wish Foundation Comes to Calais


By Natalie Boomer

18-year-old Alex Newsome was granted his wish on Tuesday, August 20th. The Make-A-Wish Foundation granted Alex’s wish of having his very own hot tub. 

While he was working as a camp counselor at the Calais public pool, a limousine pulled up filled with his family to surprise him, along with his friends and campers holding signs that said “Yay Alex” and “We love you”. He was handed a ‘Make-A-Wish’ T-shirt and a pin that said “Wish Kid” and they took him to see his wish come true.
