Dover-Foxcroft village scene featured on Pine Tree Society holiday cards

BATH — The holiday season might look a little different this year, but many traditions remain the same, such as the simple joy of sending – and receiving – a special card from a friend or family member.

Pine Tree Society’s holiday cards have been a Maine tradition for 50 years. One hundred percent of proceeds from annual holiday card sales support Pine Tree Society’s programs and help Maine people with disabilities lead richer, more socially connected lives.

This year, Pine Tree Society brought back one of its most popular cards featuring Maine artist Carlton Plummer’s painting “Dover-Foxcroft Village.”  

“Dover-Foxcroft Village” is a captivating rendition of this quintessential Maine village during the holidays with neighbors coming together to share a sunny and brisk winter’s day amidst the snow-covered roads, trees and homes.   

Plummer, who passed away in February, was born in Brunswick and spent his childhood on his grandparents’ farm outside Augusta before attending art school in Boston and becoming a full-time painter and professor of art.

Pine Tree Society helps Maine people with disabilities lead richer, more socially connected lives. Too often, people with disabilities feel left out, even isolated. With the help of Pine Tree Society, they’re not alone. We share a spirit of innovation and desire to discover new ways to break down barriers that many find insurmountable. It started as a bold new idea in 1936 and it continues every day.
