Jerry Milligan, President of The Ludlow Farmers Market Inc. presented Black River Good Neighbor Services with a check for $1,000 recently.
In light of news that Vermont is the sixth hungriest state in the nation, the membership of LFMKT voted to make the donation to assist community members in need. LFMKT, a non-profit organization, completed a successful first season in October.
The market would like to acknowledge the generosity of Okemo Mountain School for the use of their property and Okemo Mountain and their sign shop for signage and other support.
Thanks also to LaValleys Building Supply, LPCTV, and Greg Mauriello; to the LFMKT vendors for their enthusiasm and for supplying the community with high quality, locally grown and produced food products, agricultural products, and fine crafts; and to the public for supporting this inaugural venture. LFMKT believes in paying it forward and in keeping with their goal to support local charitable organizations, they hope that this donation will help those in need and will increase awareness that BRGNS is a very important community resource.
They also hope that you will support this great farmers market next season. Look for us on the front lawn of Okemo Mountain School (53 Main Street) Friday afternoons from 4-7 p.m. from Memorial Day through Columbus Day weekends.
