Our inaugural pairing of the Silent Auction (in its second year) with our Strawberry Festival (in it’s 44th year) went really well. We had a banner turnout — serving over 350 people. The weather was perfect and the atmosphere here was easy and welcoming. Between the silent auction and the supper, we grossed over $8300.
There are so many people to thank that I can’t really do it justice. However, individuals on the two committees deserve singling out. For the Strawberry Festival Committee: Harriet Grenier, Cindy Senning. Deb Utton and Alice Durkin. For the Silent Auction Committee: June Hibbs and Diane Leavitt.
But as the Chair of the Board of Finance put it last Sunday, it was one of those occasions when everyone, each in his or her own way, small or large, contributed toward making it work. Without everyone’s help, cooking, cleaning, preparing, setting-up and tearing-down, we couldn’t have done it. Thank you, thank you!
