This event has been in the works for months. Many hands worked tirelessly behind the scenes to help in the effort to raise funds to open our food co-op.
It began with a committee and a chair. Thanks first need to go to Helen McClean for her talented management of the event and constant good cheer. Cora Kelley assisted with auction logistics, Sharon Alden made sure we had many delicious desserts and Morgan Macchione handled the cashier/donation table along with Barb Bradley.
Meanwhile, Sue Sprinkle, created breathtaking graphics for our advertisements, Barb and Tom Bradley handled all of our fundraising items, Shaun Lott helped distribute flyers and wrote thank you letters and Evan Daigneault coordinated the volunteers for the membership tables.
A new and prolific behind the scenes committee member, Christopher Friar, assisted with the Facebook page, blog advertisements and created advertisements in other social media. Rob Leach and Hans Geier lent critical support at the auction. Countless members helped out at the auction or created awesome desserts for us. Special thanks go to the ReJoySing Choir for providing entertainment at opening and to Jersey Jones for his auctioneering expertise.
Thanks to DeVonne Koppenberg for taking such great photos at the Dessert Auction.
