To the Editor:
Thank you to all who made the 48th Annual Minerva Christmas Bazaar a success. The organizations and vendors offered the community a wonderful variety of choices.
Thanks to Heidi Kelly and Minerva Central School for the use of the gym and all the help in organizing and setting up for the event. The students decorated the tree and the walls with creative handmade ornaments.
Thank you to Sue Corey, Robbie Kohrman and Danae Tucker of the Town of Minerva for delivery of tables, backdrop and the Memory Tree.
Thanks to those who helped with publicity, Mike Corey, Joy and Ed Healy, Teresa Haley, and Kathleen DeGuilme. Bob Foley, Danielle Goodspeed, and Kathleen DeGuilme did an excellent job decorating. Angela McCall was an articulate and confident announcer. The guitar students of Mrs. LaPointe and the band students of Mr. Bee filled the gym with music. Santa’s Helpers, Lynn Green and Bev West, offered a delicious dinner. Jake Hitchcock donated the Christmas tree, swept the gym floor, and delivered large items back to their owners.
Thank you to Santa and Mrs. Claus for joining us and talking to the children.
An extra special thank you goes to Katy Smith whose experience and skill were invaluable in the planning and executing of the bazaar.
Thank you to all who attended. You were the most important factor in the success of the bazaar. We look forward to seeing you again next year.
